I was looking forward to staying at this hostel before I arrived on the South Island. I had heard rumours and tales of a delicious hot chocolate pudding provided to guests at Sequoia Lodge. When I and my four friends arrived and eagerly asked about the pudding we were assured that pudding would be provided, and that they also have an outdoor spa that we should use. Thank freud that I did. They usually turn the spa off at 9 pm, however they allowed my friends and I to spend a great time longer in the tub, under the stars, drinking wine and smoking a cigar. The rooms are spacious and are painted a warm red colour (better than the murky-mustard walls of other hostels). The staff at the hostel provide guests with free hot waters and extra blankets to use during the night. Overall, the staff were fun and friendly and helped make our stay better than 5/5. A must stay.
Ps. The pudding is amazing.
