I only stayed for 2 nights in Buscot station but i want to share my experience. Upon arrival i had the wrong address and house so the owner Tony made the effort to pick me personally up and bring me to his place. He gave a precise, detailed and short tour in the house and all was clear. The communal... More

This is without doubt the best hostel I've ever stayed at! The view from the hostel is amazing and you can hike up to the hill behind the house for an even better one. Tony, the host, is one of the friendliest people I've ever had the pleasure to meet. He showed us the farm and the animals. He also... More

I travel through this area occasionally to visit clients and rather than stay in a motel I much prefer Buscot Station. The guests are from all over the world and Tony the host has the most incredible back catalogue of knowledge on anything you can imagine. The house is warm and comfortable and the location is just incredible. Highly recommended

The owner travelled all around the world and he now a lot! It's a welcoming place, but it's just a big house. The kitchen is small and the owner have rules for everything. It's not that easy to find and doesn't accept card. I really recommend the place for one night.

The house has got a nice living room with a fire place, piano and great dvd collection, a fully equipped kitchen with free coffee and tea, bathrooms with hot shower and a nice garden. Tony is an excellent and lovely host who has seen a lot of the world. Highly recommended!

Buscot station is located on a working Merino sheep farm outside of Omarama (which is a pretty small town). You stay in the host's home, and he is very knowledgeable about the area and well-travelled too. The garden is tended by someone who knows what he is doing, and you have good views from the farmhouse. I think many people... More

Everything in this backpacker is awesome !! It s a little house between omarama and mount cook with sheep and alone in nature. Staff is very nice and friendly. Good bed in a large dorm ! We shared the living room and the garden is wonderful with a view on all the mountains!!

Tony is super friendly and knowledgable. The house is cozy and welcoming with an abundance of travel books to browse through. Great location for a pit stop between christchurch and queenstown. Wouldn't have wanted to be snowed in anywhere else

While travelling around New Zealand I have been to many hostels. But this one was for sure the most outstanding one. The scenery around is simply beautiful and the host, Tony, is exceptional. He doesnt take this as a business but instead, takes you in as a real guest to his cosy home and makes everything possible that you get... More

I recently stayed at Buscot Station for a night when travelling on a Hiking NZ trip. The hostel is situated on a working farm and run by Tony, who is happy to share his home with his guests. I stayed in the dorm room which had nice comfy beds and a shared bathroom. The views from the homestead out over... More
