The Villa Backpackers Lodge, Picton, New Zealand
Not the best
Initial impression was of the smell walking in. Generally the place is fairly shabby and cleanliness could be improved. One of the staff used their key to enter our room at 1am waking us up. The excuse was that their colleague made a mistake at check in and that the room said there shouldn’t be anyone staying in it. We were not impressed. I would recommend finding somewhere else when staying in picton.

Nice ambiance
Comfortable, clean and quiet. The shared facilities provided any of the extras that we wanted. Villa Backpackers Lodge has a nice ambiance.

Great stay including Jeopardy & retinal burns :-)
The staff were amazing and super friendly. The room was basic, really basic.... I'm sure it was clean but everything was old including the bedding and the bathroom grout so it felt worse than I'm sure it was. The bed was comfortable but the tv was missing the remote so I only got two channels (not the good ones - 3 and prime :-( ) The wifi didn't work on my iPhone so I watched jeopardy on the oldest tv in the universe and went to bed. There was a light outside my room that was brighter than the sun so I got little sleep. If you are staying one night in order to catch the ferry to Wellington and don't mind basic accommodation it is a great option as it is walking distance to the ferry terminal. If you are expecting the Sheraton you will be disappointed Tip: byo black out blinds
