My hostel experience here might be a bit different from most. I ended up paying for a double room even though I was traveling solo (no more dorm beds for me!) and rented a car, so travel to and from the hostel was quite easy. Full disclosure: most of the folks stay in the dorms here and are traveling by... More

This is by far one of the best hostels I have stayed at. It's clean, the staff are friendly, in a great location with all the facilities you need. The tv room is comfy and well designed like a mini cinema, the free breakfast is superb with so many options. We also had free pudding the first night we arrived... More

Traveling with my mom and sister, we stayed here on our first night in New Zealand. The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. Our bags had been lost in transit, but they helped us contact the airline and our bags arrived the next day. There is a shared kitchen and breakfast is included. Very clean, and convenient... More

I arrived in the evening after a 10 hour drive and the lady at the desk was so kind to me. She went out of her way to make sure I was wafm enough and each day the staff would chat with people to make sure they were happy. As I was the only in the dorm on my first... More

Sequoia Lodge is well located, very cosy and quiet, and very good value for money: for the same price you pay in so many hostels, you get free chocolate pudding every night at 8pm (and it's so delicious!), free breakfast, and access to the hot tub ! There is a fire place and sofas ; the kitchen is well equiped,... More

We stayed in the ensuite double room, which was nice and clean and in fact more like a motel unit than a cheap backpackers. The common areas were extremly nice and well kept and they are ok with you staying there after check-out as long as you tell them beforehand (very handy if you intend to catch the afternoon ferry)....

We had a twin private room - it was a great room, with an interesting little patio out front. There was a little bistro table and flowering vines waving around in the breezez. Friendly staff, nice kitchen and lounging areas, and patio outside. The atmosphere here was so chill and friendly. And there's free wi-fi in the common areas. Plus,... More

This is a very friendly hostel in a good location. We had a double room with ensuite and a veranda with loungers all at a very good price. They offer free chocolate pudding in the evenings and have a spa pool (although we didn't try it). Highly recommended for value, location and staff.

I arrived in Sequoia on 23/4, for a short trip in the top of South Island, as soon as I arrived from the ferry I could spot the shuttle waiting outside eventhough the hostel is very close to the ferry. I love Sequoia from heart, I booked a double room with bathroom, the room was lovely, the shower was great... More
