    Highly recommend. I stayed 3 nights here as a solo traveller and found it very welcoming and comfortable. The atmosphere is great with music and a log fire in the evening. Cooking facilities are good with free standard breakfast and soup/pudding in the evening. They also have a hot tub free of charge which you can book out so it doesn't get crowded like some other places! Staff very friendly and always available to help. Overall great experience - thank you.

    It was really nice to stay 1 night here. Everything looks clean and tidy. Staff is friendly. They treated me a pudding with icecream that’s yummy. I will stay here again if I come back Picton.

    Had a wonderful easy stay at Sequoia, at both ends of our Queen Charlotte Track tramp. We were a group and had a dorm to ourselves both times which was appreciated! Brekky was simple but filling and the lads loved the huge chess board. It was a shame the spa wasn’t working while we were there but really didn’t take away from an all round great experience!

    Stayed at a private room with shared washrooms, which wasn’t a problem, except that they weren’t in the main building and required going outside to get to them, not ideal when it’s stormy outside. Also, they had a lot of moths flying around, and didn’t feel like they were regularly cleaned. Room was extremely basic, could have probably saved some money and stayed in the dorms.

    Staff was nice and overall hostel is fine but little details are not there... half of the stoves were not working, WiFi unavailable in the rooms, room was very smelly! Also, only one plug in the dorm which is not practical
