Friendly, clean. Good kitchen facilities. Hot tub is divine. Rooms cosy and very comfortable. Chocolate pudding is very yummy. Staff very friendly and helpful.
Very friendly Hostel
Only stayed there for 1 night, used Picton as a stopover after arriving by ferry. Sequia Lodge is like they say, just around the corner, and the ferry bus will actually drop you outside the door. Accommodation is very clean and the staff were so helpful. Loved the Chocolate Sponge idea for guests in the winter.
Very Disappointed we booked a double room without en-suite and arrived only to find the room was at the back of the laundry so was not quiet at all and also had a connecting door in the room which had a lock on it but connected to the next rooms toilet -- Was not hygienic or what we paid for at all! Bedside table was broken and had a tea towel covering this, spiders and cobwebs were all through out the room along with carpet which hadn't been vacuumed in months. Bathroom facilities were horrendous with blood on toilet seat. Not Happy at all and definitely not worth what we paid for.
Best in the Country
Great hostel -- having traveled my own country hosteling top to bottom, east to west, Sequoia was easily the best I encountered. Hosts go out of their way to make you feel comfortable, and couldn't be more helpful with information/activities and the transfer down to the Ferry is fantastic. Room was spotless, comfortable -- and the chocolate pudding just rounds the whole place out. Even if Picton's not on your itinerary, it's a great town and this hostel makes the trip worthwhile.
This is a great hostel. It is ten minutes from the town centre but they collect from the ferry and it is on the intercity route so you can get dropped off right outside. The manager Jilian was very helpful and the hot tub is fab! It was very clean and the individual reading lights were great.
First place I've rated five stars, and indeed one of my favourite hostels in the world! Staff were unbelievably friendly, and the hostel just immediately felt like "home" the minute I walked in. Free pickups from the ferry made getting to and from a breeze. The soundproof TV room with its selection of hundreds of DVDs was a great way to recover from some hiking in the area and chill out on a rainy day. The owner's cat was really friendly, too. The dorms were comfy, cozy, with spotless en-suite facilities. Stay here and feel like family!
This place was clean, comfortable, and had a nice kitchen and TV room/lounge. The bathroom was a bit crowded. I didn't see any soup when I was there, but they brought out fresh warm (free) bread in the morning. The reading lights were also a nice feature.
This hostel was incredibly friendly, clean, accommodating and comfortable. This was my favourite of all the hostels I stayed at in New Zealand.
