I stayed here for two nights to escape the rain- it was a nice hostel with a lot of little extras to make you so much more comfortable. For examples hooks and a towel rack in the room- the bed was very comfortable, clean and tastefully decorated. We enjoyed the hot tub even in the rain as it was covered. The scones for breakfast were to die for!

A real haven - great kitchen, AMAZING breakfast (a massive bonus!), cosy rooms (I was on my own in a double room the first night, same rate as a bigger dorm-style room), very clean, spa/hot-tub was great after a long day walking and Lynn, the owner (I think I remember her name correctly?!), was super accommodating and helpful, offering pick-ups and drop-offs etc. Only point I would mention is that there are cats hanging around the common areas, I'm allergic so this was a bit of a bother, but it probably wouldn't prevent me from going there again!

Don't be scared off by the name, this place is truly lovely!!! Spent one night but wish it was more. Booked a double room, shared shower facilities and got up graded to an ensuite room when we checked in with a view of Picton from the hill. Amazing free breakfast, the homemade cheese scones were stunning! Lovely clean tidy rooms and just a lovely feel around the house. The couple that run the backpackers would do anything to make your stay the best. We checked out as We had a finishing trip for the day and our ferry was delayed back to Wellington, they offered use of the shower facilities after our trip and gave us a lift to the ferry port!

Thanks for an amazing stay, really made our weekend! Will be back for sure!!!!

A great backpackers opposite the cemetery hence the name. Quirky skull keyrings. Great facilities and close to the ferry terminal. I had a room with ensuite which was modern, clean and comfortable. Helpful hosts. Would highly recommend. Easy 5 min drive into main shops.

We stayed at Tombstone Backpackers for a couple of days in June and we loved it. We had been staying in dorms for a while so this was a lovely change of scenery. We originally booked a dorm but the owners were lovely enough to offer us a private room for no extra charge as they were quiet at the time. They also picked us up and drove us back to the ferry terminal which saved us walking around with our massive backpacks in the rain. The bathrooms and kitchen were clean, the tv room felt nice and homely, there were 2 friendly cats and they even left us clean towels and toiletries in our bed. The electric blankets were also an amazing touch! All in all we would highly recommend this place and if we're ever in Picton again we won't hesitate to book a room there.
