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...

The night shift host, Morris was helpful and friendly. The hostel location was great, but in front was a graveyard, if you scare about it. Other than that, all positive. By the way, they got great view too, you can enjoy the view with their hot pool. Great hostel!

This is a really nice backpackers. we had a double room with ensuite, and while it was small, it's well thought out and very comfortable. The balcony is a great spot to watch all the comings and goings at the port. the hosts are very welcoming. The common areas are very nice and well equipped. Definitely recommend!

Great location, great rooms and Gary & Nikki were fabulous. It's a short walk to the harbour for Sounds tours & shops/ restaurants and then right next to the ferry to Wellington entrance. Rooms spotless & very modern (as were the bathrooms). Nice communal areas & even though agoda messed up one night of our stay Gary went out of...

The scones for breakfast are a must and blooming yummy!! The hosts are friendly and give great advice on what to do in the surrounding area. If its...
