My boyfriend and I stayed here as an overnight stop whilst we began our southward journey of the South Island. The staff was very chatty and friendly, and the kitchen/common rooms were fantastic! This was also the first place where we experienced the free chocolate pudding/ice cream and it was delicious! The dorms were on the smaller side, but the...

Terribly hard beds. Place was also a bit stick in the mud-dy and a bit out of the way of the ferry. The rooms did t lock here either and the security door to the toilets which were outside of the main inside hallway was left unlocked for people to access toilets, making the rooms also accessible to thievery/ other...

After a few days of woofing I decided to ask I I could leave earlier because I just didn't have a nice stay. Mostly because I felt left out from the other people woofing and didn't feel welcomed. The respond I got was not the one I thought and they called me racist because most of the other woofers was...

I have booked the Sequoia Lodge as there was nothing else available in Picton for a reasonable price. I appreciated the very friendly staff and nice invitation for regular 8pm pudding served to all guests for free. I can imagine it is a good place to stay for younger travellers or backpackers with low comfort expectation and limited need of...

Very familiar. Every day you get free breakfast and in the evening chocolate pudding with icecream! Free Internet but sometimes slow (especially in the evening when everyone uses it) Rooms are very clean, hot showers. Seperate toilets (in my room the door does not close properly but that isnt a big problem)
