This is a great place for backpackers. The management are really nice and went out of their way to help us out. The central area has a BBQ and seating, which is great when the sun shines or in the evenings for a few drinks. There is a swimming pool - as far as I know the only backpackers in Blenheim with one. Rooms are tidy, all facilities are functional and the manager is friendly and very helpful. They will give you a list of employers and contractors so you can find work, but there is no deposit/charges for doing so, unlike most other hostels in Blenheim. In my view, the best backpackers in Blenheim by a long way!

Room Tip: They have bunk rooms for 4 people +, so if you are travelling in a group it is a very cheap place to saty, as the beds are cheaper when the rooms are full.

It's been a while since I last spent a night in a "backpacker style" accommodation place. For the price I paid for a single room, this was much better value than the average holiday park. Shared facilities left a bit to desire, but just for a night stopover for a lone traveler it is more than enough. Note that it is right next to the railway, so it might happen to feel "the vibe" of a passing train.

The hostel is about a 15 minute walk from the city center which is convenient but it isn't very close to the wineries. I was traveling by bus with 3 other girls so it ended up being a bit expensive to get out to the vineyards for wine tastings. But if you have a car its only a 15-20 minute drive to the wineries. We ended up with a room to ourselves since we had 4 people so that was nice, everyone was very friendly and the rooms have a fully equipped kitchen which was such a treat.
