      I really enjoyed my stay at the Villa. The staff was very helpful and the location is perfect, the city center is just around the corner. I loved the whole atmosphere in this beautiful old building! And the spa was perfect to relax!! I totally recommend to stay at the Villa!

      Friendly reception when I arrived, clean and I loved the outdoor areas. I decided to stay there again on my return trip through Picton and will do so any time I'm passing through.

      Proximity to the ferry

      Having to park on the street with stuff left in the car due to cramped room

      Nice to pocket and clean and tidy, budget friendly backpackers lodge. If you are looking for one night only and catching a next early morning ferry then this is a very useful and worth place to add in the list.

      Nice place and convenient location in town with friendly staff. We stayed in an ensuite room, which was fairly basic and a bit cramped - but fine for our purpose and good value for the price. Enjoyed our deck/ walkway overlooking the place.

      Friendly place.

      Wobbly bunk beds. Very little movement from one person top or bottom would have the whole thing rocking. This could be fixed by attaching them to the walls perhaps.

      Great atmosphere and really close to town. Gorgeous garden. The staff were very helpful and the girl at reception helped me book the Queen Charlotte Track (even got a $10 off deal for Cougarline). Really enjoyed my stay!

      Helpful friendly staff, complimentary apple crumble served in the evening.

      Location good

      Disappointed with facilities, a bit rustic, for price. Should be cheaper.

      Awesome courtyard area which encouraged people to come together and meet new people. As a solo traveller I found this to be so valuable

      Basic bedding but you expect this from a backpackers lodge

      The gardens are what attracted us. The Villa Backpackers has a beautiful outlook and surroundings, and is really well-priced.

      Absolutely loved our stay - the atmosphere was the best part. We were greeted at the ferry with a guy playing the guitar and then he played at The Villa all night. It was great and he was really good. Then we were treated to an amazing apple crumble and icecream which was all part of the deal. Would really recommend staying here.

      I liked the good atmosphere of this hostel. Nice Garden to hang around and meet people. Free Bikes and Pooltabel! And the staff was very helpfull for my Queen Charlotte Track bookings.

    • Single

      Nice garden, hairdryer in the double room, clean room and kitchen

      I booked a double room on my own, and was asked about that fact twice. Well, if there were single rooms, I would certainly book them. The furniture and carpet were a bit old - value for money is ok if you are two people, but singles are practically non-existent in NZ.
