Sequoia Lodge was a lovely hostel to spend the night in. It had a very warm, friendly atmosphere and a great communal area! A massive bonus was the free hot chocolate pudding and ice-cream :) Very cute place to stay!

A very nice backpackers lodge where you can feel at ease among other travellers, while cooking your own food in the equipped kitchen or using the wifi. The staff is very friendly and helpful (special thanks to Rachel) and there is a frequent free shuttle to the ferry terminals. Our room with private bathroom was simple but good value. Unfortunately,...

We had a private double with our own bathroom and a little porch, nestled under a tree. The outdoor hot tub was great for soaking in after a long hike. Comfy common areas, both indoor and out. The kitchen...

we needed an overnight stop before an early morning ferry to Wellington. Superb location, and our double room with en suite was old, but spotless and had everything we needed, including a good bed. Friendly staff, great kitchen, chocolate pudding, and hot drinks whenever.
