Quite possibly the best backpackers in New Zealand. Nikki has really got something here, the work that she must have put into this establishment only she would know. The character this old building has is exactly what you picture when you dream of staying in...More

Great place to rest for a few days. Very unique hostel with few rooms only, welcoming hosts, beautiful garden with veggies and fruit, hammocks and cozy living room. Very quiet, clean and only 10min walk from Picton center.

Uhm it is a quiet long walk. Takes you probably 20min by walking... But I'd say it is worth it. You can try to ask them to pick you up, but I think they don't do it normaly.
