I stayed in a dorm at Tombstone for one night after arriving in Picton on the ferry from Wellington. Unfortunately I did not get the chance to take advantage of all of the great features of this hostel (too tired from travel), but it seemed like a really fun place to stay again in the future. The wifi was good,...

What can I say... Such a nice place ! My home for 123 nights :) I can only advise you to go there. This is a place you do not want to miss in NZ ! It will fit with all your expectations. A real mix of travelers which makes this place uncredible ! Thank you Gary and Nikki for...

Free Breakfes, a spa pool and very friendly staff. The location is close to the farry and the town centre, its not long to the fresh choice either. 2 cats and a dog live around here too. All in all a really amazing hostel.

While waiting to catch a ferry I was given these details for a place to have a shower and rest before I left. The staff were fantastically helpful and happy to assist. Everything I saw here was good. The guests seemed happy, the showers were big and clean. Great atmosphere and very kind and helpful

We booked the self contained unit which is a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom plus a kitchen/living room. The room was spotless and the bed incredibly comfortable. Everything had been thought about including leaving us some milk in the fridge so that we could have a cup of tea and teabags and coffee are provided. The hostel is super convenient...

Service: ++ Dorms: - Cleanliness: + Location: + Price: -/+ Wifi: + (but not in the dorms) I loved the host Nikki and the fresh baked scones in the morning! Free shuttle to the ferry. Only the dorms were a bit small and not enough outlets. But besides this I really would recommend you staying here!

A little off the main road, but a real gem this place. Make sure to catch the free shuttle they provide from the port! They also drop back off at bus station. I don't know where to begin with this place. The owner is really accommodating, hard working, and a great guy. 3 of us wanted to go into town...

We LOVED our stay at Tombstone Backpackers. Admittedly a little out the way but look for their shuttle bus at the ferry port and grab yourselves a free lift (we didn't see it). The place itself is so lovely, the wifi connection is fantastic, the free bikes for use were fantastic, the free hot scones and bread in the morning...
