Always a bit nervous staying at a backpacker type accommodation but Anakiwa Lodge is lovely. Great facilities, nice room and well stocked kitchen. We were in the family room which was very good - I camped mostly on this holiday so it was lovely to have a real bed for a night! We also made use of the spa and... More

Hostels can be pretty big and pretty basic. This was more like a small inn than a hostel, and had way more amenities, like a hot tub, use of kayaks, huge DVD library, hair dryers and more. It was spotlessly clean and well maintained. And it's a 2 minute walk from the start of the beautiful Queen Charlotte track! I... More

This was one of the best YHA's I have stopped in during a recent trip to NZ and like other reviewers could not believe this was a YHA. Set in a quiet location only a short drive from Picton and a short walk down to the water and Queen Charlotte Track. I had booked a double but when I arrived... More

Like others I couldn't believe this is a YHA, it's more like a hotel. There was a slight mix up with my booking which was fine because I ended up in a lovely room with a double bed that was the most comfortable bed I've slept in during my travels. The facilities are spotlessy clean and it has everything you... More

We got an Special offer, because there were no free dormbeds left. So we slept in a kingsize bed for the price of a dormbed. This is what I call Service. And the owner has given us a lift in his truck, back to the highway. Only the fact that is there no groceriestore or anything else, is a little... More

Lovely bathroom adjacent to our room with separate loo also very clean. We appreciated the free tea making facilities upstairs too! Spa well worth it for... More

Stayed for 3 nights while exploring the marlborough sounds. Couldn't fault the hostel. Stayed in a double with adjacent bathroom, facilities were very clean. Darryl was very helpful and it was great to be able to use the single kayaks for free. The free spa use with the room and movie rental are a nice touch too. Can't believe it's... More

We stayed here en route to the Queen Charlotte track. The friendly owner discussed our plans and drove us to a starting point on the track which gave us a beautiful 4 hour walk back to Anakiwa more suited to our middle-aged abilities than our original plan would have been. If the weather had been suitable he would have transported... More

We stayed there only for one night, the hosts were very nice and accommodating, we took a double en-suite room which was bright, clean and super comfortable, much better than most hostels offer in every aspect. The kitchen was great and well equipped. I took a peek at the 4-bed dorm room and those beds looked extremely spoiling :) They... More
