Sam Charles thinks…

"Really nice atmosphere and good location only a short walk to the harbour. Free wifi and chocolate pudding were great and also nice to have a courtesy shuttle! Would definitely recommend this hostel!"

About Sequoia Lodge Backpackers

The spa pool’s bubbling hot, the fire’s roaring, it’s warm. Great music’s playing and the people are friendly & genuine.

Every night of the year we serve up a free hot & homemade chocolate pudding & ice cream. Free all you can eat breakfast May to October. Free Unlimited wi-fi

Our hostel is family owned, spacious, clean and homely. Everyone says it has a nice feel to it. In winter we light the log fire every night and all the rooms have heaters.
We also supply extra duvets and hot water bottles for those that feel the cold (not that you should need it our hostel is always kept very warm).

It is a hostel which attracts a wide variety of nationalities and ages (not usually group travelers) and we try to ensure that everyone feels welcome and enjoys their stay (of course).

Sequoia lodge backpackers is the perfect base from which to explore the world famous Marlborough sounds or walk the queen charlotte track. Buses and most activity operators will pick up and/or drop off right at our front door. Everyone that works here has a lot of local knowledge and is happy to share it and book anything for you. We can ticket buses, water taxis, kayak trips and all activities

Or maybe you'll want to kick back for awhile and use the hostel as a place to plan your whole south island trip. Either way we're sure that you'll enjoy your stay.

On rainy days you can chill out in a movie theatre room which has sky TV featuring latest sports & movies and on sunnier days there are hammocks and lots of outdoor areas to laze in

Also available are bikes for you to use (no charge) to explore the area. Off-street parking and free luggage storage. Free local calls/no phone card surcharge on our hostel phone.
