We stayed one night at tombstone before catching a ferry the next morning. A great place to stay, plenty of social spaces and a large kitchen. Friendly, helpful staff. Sun loungers and hot tub! Showers good with decent water pressure, very clean bathrooms. Good location for ferry and a ten minute walk to town. Parking for vehicles should you need...

Had 18 exchange students stay on our way to Christchurch. The rooms were excellent,clean with the decor great. The fresh baked scones for breakfast were a big hit. Will definitely return on our tour next year to the friendly, helpful owners and their very nice backpackers.

One of the best hostels I stayed in on my trip through NZ. The place is really clean, has great facilities and the fresh baked scones in the morning are superb! Good location too. Thoroughly recommend.

This place really lives up to its reviews. One of our best stays in the South Island! If free scones for breakfast isn't enough to sway you, there are plenty of other great features this hostel delivers that go above and beyond the rest. We stayed in a private room & were very impressed that our towels were provided, the...

Tombstone backpackers has the ambiance of a homely B&B with all the facilities of a hostel. When we stayed, there was a mixed crowd of guests from young backpackers to families to older couples. There's a great (clean) outdoor spa perfect for watching the moon rise, a TV theatre room, a sun room with piano and guitar, board games, several...

The hostel has a friendly and positive atmosphere, with many good features which include: a clean and well stocked kitchen; electric blankets; clean and comfortable beds with duvet, blanket and...

I stumbled upon this amazing place when I got off the ferry from north island and found their free shuttle waiting in the parking lot. I hadn't booked a place since the wifi on the ferry wasn't working. And wow, did I luck out! For the low price of $30 NZ a night you have everything you could ever wish...
