The hostel is very close to the ferry terminal and bus stop as well as main high street, which is where the library is located. The room we stayed in could do with a little make over but in general served it's purpose. The kitchen was never too busy and always clean, made my birthday cake there. Friendly cats walked... More

I lost both my spare and daily spectacles and could barely see anything while in picton. The owner was genuinely concerned and drove me to blenheim where there was a bigger optical shop where they had more supplies. Thank you so much! I felt like a treasured guest and I would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone who wants to... More

This place is absolutely one of the nicest and most comfortable hostels I have ever visited. The staff is so friendly, all the places are clean and you can get help when ever you need it. Prices are right. Location is perfect. I love this place.

This is definitely one of our best and most unique hostel experiences we have made so far in New Zealand! First I was very sceptical if its possible to sleep well in a huge dorm like this one here in Atlantis Backpackers - Yes you can! The dorm is separated in many sections where you have your own privacy. Furthermore... More

We decided last minute to stay in Picton instead of Blenheim, so no idea whatsoever of what to do in Picton and around... We have been welcomed by Sheira who has been the most enthusiastic and fantastic host I've ever seen in New Zealand, and a few hours later she drove us to the waterfront to introduce us to the...

When travelling on a budget you often get what you pay for but at Atlantis you get much more! The staff go above and beyond to make you feel at home and part of their crazy family. The hostel itself feels like a home, they offer free dessert and breakfast and have lots of suggestions for things to do. The... More

Ok, the rooms are not the best and it seems to be very chaotic in this place but the staff is very lovely and you can see that they make a lot of effort to let everyone feel comfortable. If you got straight from the ferry don't be afraid of staying in the 22 bed dorm or in the Atlantis... More

The guy at check in was very funny and made us feel welcome the whole time! The rooms were cute and clean. The kitchen was big and you get free dessert at night (you can't ever go wrong with that) Loved the style of the hostel, it felt like it had character.. like a home away from home! Will definitely...

I would recommend everyone this accomodation. Friendly staff, nice location, very close to the ferries. There is free coffee and chocolate and sometimes home made sweets too! Good advice received by the staff about things to see/do.

After some confusion re availability & several calls + a face to face with the delightfully zany Madame who seemingly runs this place I had 2 great nights here. V friendly & helpful with good local tips - great 'fush n chups' at local fish plant just down the road.
