The Dwellington perfectly blends the homely, the cozy and the stylish within a backpackers property. Over half of the Dwellington is dedicated to common areas, including the chef's style kitchen, the impressive 5 More meter long Redwood dining table that overlooks the tennis courts, television with Netflix and games room, outdoor spaces and more. We offer our guests free unlimited WiFi and a free breakfast everyday during their stay. Fresh towels are available on demand anytime you like. We have a variety of rooms which include spacious private double's, twins, triples, a family room, 4-bed dorms, a female dorm room and a generous 8-bed dorm. Reception is open everyday between 6:30AM and 9PM but we can arrange to welcome you if you are arriving later. The friendly staff can help with booking a variety of local activities and onward journeys including the Interislander and Bluebridge ferries to Picton. Less
