Property Description

Our hostel is family-run, purpose-built, spacious, very clean and homely.

All year round we have free, delicious, homemade hot chocolate pudding and ice cream. From May to October there is a FREE all-you-can-eat winter breakfast, while all year round we've got FREE UNLIMITED Wi-Fi

We have a large selection of doubles, twins, small dorms and six share dorms. In the winter we also offer double rooms at a single occupancy rate.

Outside you'll find a well-used hammock, swing chair and an edible garden which includes herbs, grapes, kiwi fruit, feijoas, lemons and more.

We also have free bike rental, off-street parking and free luggage storage!

Just like your favourite caf, we have great music and friendly, genuine people. Everyone says it has a nice feel to it. We're just five minutes' walk from the main street - far enough away to avoid city noise but close enough that it's an easy walk to shops, cafes, etc. We attract a wide variety of nationalities and ages and we try to ensure that everyone feels welcome and enjoys their stay.

We also have a similar hostel in Picton called Sequoia Lodge Backpackers - check them out here on Hostelworld!

Our office is closed between 1 and 3pm, and at 9pm in the evening. If you arrive during the day when the office is closed please make yourself 'at home' until we get back.
Note - if you arrive later than 9pm please contact us to organise a late check-in (our office closes at 9pm).” View House Rules

    Fantastic hostel, period. A quick overview of the kind of traveller I am for context. My main priorities when finding a hostel are value for money, atmosphere, and potential for meeting good hearted people. This is the kind of hostel that has all of those things. I met incredible people and the vibe is very relaxed and fun. We got people together to play nightly games of Risk and played Volleyball and Soccer (football). I stayed here in the off season in mid-April. Highly recommended.

    I really liked staying here. The rooms are clean, but a little tight. Good value for money. The community there is really great and the staff is super welcoming. They provide basics for breakfast and dessert at night during their social hour. I went with a group, but I think I would have felt very welcome if I was traveling alone.

    Such a great hostel! The chocolate pudding was my every day highlight and I loved the idea of a “social hour” every night. Great vibe in general and free bikes to rent.

    This staff was excellent! I had booked into a mixed dorm and the nice lady who checked me in warned me that all my roommates were dudes and offered to move me to a different room. I didn't move but it was really considerate and I appreciated it a lot! My only complaint was there were no lockers for storage or security and my roommates didn't seem to believe in locking doors or cleaning up after themselves. That isn't the hostel's fault but it would be nice to have some form of secure storage!

    Everything you need is there, just a lack of power sockets in the room except one central one was a bit frustrating - other than that, great experience
