We had a lovely night here in a huge double room - Tony moved things around to accommodate us as he was quite booked up. The setting in fantastic, overlooking the beautiful Hills and farmland. Tony took us down to see the cows being milked, as well as watch him feed the lambs - and he's an absolute wealth of... More

We actually wanted to stay on lake tekapo, but everything was booked so I stumbled over this awesome place. It is a lovely place surrounded by sheep farms with great views of the mountains. Our twin room was nice and comfy (only curtains would be nice there), the kitchen and living room has all you need. The owner Tony is... More

We stumbled across this place by accident but it proved to be the perfect base from which to explore the Mount Cook National Park. We had a wonderfully cosy evening by the fire, being entertained by Tony, knowledgeable on everything from NZ politics, to agriculture, to travelling in Europe! The room was comfortable, and the facilities were more than adequate.

Well, if you want to know the latest about farming sheep and kettle, hassles with politicians less familiar with farming, drainage systems, irigation systems, pest control, bird life reinstated etc., then this is your place to go! Take a bottle of pinot noir and settle down in Tony's lounge to listen to his words and awake the next morning with... More

We stayed two nights and enjoyed it very much. Very friendly host, Tony, who is himself an experienced traveler. He knows what other travelers want! A home away from home! And this is it! We liked the fact that this is really a home, not something built for commercial use.

After a long days drive we found Buscot Station Back Packers. Although very dark, finding the sign for going down the 0.5km driveway was no problem. Our room upstairs was large, the bed very comfortable, and we had a bathroom to ourselves. There were only 3 other guests so using the kitchen was no problem but could be if the... More

My husband and I spent one night here en route to Mount Cook from the Catlins. We have tried to stick to small BBH hostels as we find that they are more social, comfortable, quiet and clean and we certainly weren't let down at Buscot Station which was all of these things. The accomodation is more like a B &... More

very friendly owner, perfect garden to relax in and walking up the hill gives a fantastic view of the sunset. kitchen was a little awkward and there was only one shower in the main house (excluding the en-suite room). The fresh eggs available to buy in the kitchen was brilliant especially at 40c an egg.

We stayed here for one night on our way to Queenstown. The owner and the other guests were very friendly, and everything was clean, if a bit dated. We had a private bath but the toilet was shared. We opted to eat in a nearby town and did not use the kitchen.

There were two of us but we were given an enormous room, which was really nice, clean and quiet. There was a great communal atmosphere, more so than anywhere else we stayed in NZ. But trying to cook in the kitchen at the same time as anyone else was very difficult! Because the hostel is basically just a house, the... More
