The best sleep we had on our whole trip. The family were lovely and so relaxed, helpful and welcoming. Fantastic to stay on a farm and in such a beautiful area. Have been talking about this part of our trip lots and telling everyone how great it was- recommend for travellers of all types.

We spent two nights in the Slope Point Backpackers. It was a great experience. We booked the green room and it was perfect. All was clean and we had all the items that we need two cook. The familiy was so nice and hospitable and her daugther showed us the different animals that they have.

Very spontaneous we decided to sleep at the Slope Point backpackers! And we didn't regret it! We got a very cosy and cute doubleroom with the most comfortable bed we have ever had on our entire trip through NZ!! In the communal kitchen is free tea and coffee which we really appreciated and it's a nice gesture for all the... More

Slope Point Backpackers is the only shared-facility lodging we have opted for till date and we were a little apprehensive about our visit. However, this undoubtedly turned out to be the best lodging we had during our visit to NZ. We stayed in comfortable and cozy gold room which was super close to the bathroom. The entire facility was extremely... More

Myself and my partner stayed here for one night in a double room with shared bathroom. The room was clean and had lovely decor. The bed was comfortable and there was plenty of room for our backpacks. The shower which was powerful and hot was located in a room next to ours so we were practically ensuite. The toilet was... More

My wife and I came across it by pure chance, after a long day driving from Queenstown and just starting to explore the Catlins. As this farmstay is located off the main asphalt roads, it would seem not many tourists are aware of its existence - which is such a shame because this place is - all on its own... More

Great farm based backpackers to explore the Catlins area. Pet the calfs and sheeps and relax in the pleasant common room. Close to the petrified forest of Curio Bay and the Catlins forest park for walks.

Slope point Backpackers is sited on a large working sheep farm. Justine, the owner and her 3 little girls are very charming with a great Kiwi sense of humor. My husband and I stayed in a private double with ensuite that was recently renovated and a great facility for the price. The Catlins are very special with lots of wildlife... More
