Stewart Island Backpackers

Meet people, share experiences and enjoy the good times


We have just recently taken this place over, and are attempting to make it one if the most memorable backpackers a traveler can stay in. It’s a large venue with 28 rooms, including single, twin, double, and dorm rooms.

An outline of our hostels make up follows, read further to gain more insight in to what we are about:
Kitchen -shared facilities -Lounge area with a TVBBQ area -Camping ground – Laundry -Booking center for the local activities -Wireless internet friendly – hostsMusic Central to the property is a large communal area with kitchen, dining and lounge areas. Shared facilities such as toilets and showers are available for everyone (including campers).

There is a sweet court yard which is sheltered from the wind and when the sun hits it, it can be a prime place for a few drinks and good times in the sun. We always have music playing (tunes which are easy on the ear), and hope to get a few outdoor games going in the busy months of the season.

Our Barbeque area is perfect for frying up some fresh fish, caught that day.

The Backpackers is in constant development. Each day we get a bit closer to our goal. Come and be a part of it.
