The Villa Backpackers Lodge Reviews


The Villa Backpackers Lodge is a 100 year old character home with homestyle hospitality — small and friendly with beautiful gardens, relaxing verandahs, large private backyards, great music, and all the facilities you can expect from a good hostel. Located in the heart of the town with all day sun.

The Villa has Queen and Twin Rooms with Ensuite, Double Rooms, 4 Share Rooms and Dormitory / Bunkrooms all clean, heated, safe and welcoming. There are linen and blankets provided for all beds.
We offer free hot apple crumble with ice cream and breakfast (May - October), have free Wifi for our guests and free use of bicycles, fishing gear, guitar, X-Box, DVD library and pooltable. We have a hot spa pool and a sundrenched garden with plenty of loungers to relax in, a treehouse plus a hammock in the front to watch the world go past.
We run free ferry pickups on request, have 2 fully equipped kitchens plus a BBQ kitchen.
We have guest laundry facilities, SKY TV in our separate TV lounge and handicapped facilities. Our fire in the courtyard makes for great evening conversations and live music.
We offer a free booking service for the Queen Charlotte Track and have tent hire available and free storage for your bags - Nothing for you to worry about while you enjoy a beautiful walk.

• The train station and bus stop is just 150m away from us and the ferry terminal is a further 150m past the train station.
• The watertaxis for the Queen Charlotte Track leave from just around the corner from us.
• Driving into Picton on SH1 just follow the signs for the Interislander walk-on. We are on that road on the right hand side next to the dutch bakery.
• Arriving by ferry with a car just follow the signs into the town centre, cross the railway lines and turn left - We are immediately across the road.
• Arriving by Bluebridge ferry as a walk-on just hop into their free shuttle bus and ask to be dropped off at The Villa.
