The Dwellington perfectly blends the homely, the cozy and the stylish within a backpackers property. We guarantee you will not stay in a hostel as luxurious as this anywhere in New Zealand.
Over half of The Dwellington is dedicated to common areas, including the chef's style kitchen, the impressive 5 meter long redwood dining table that overlooks the tennis courts, a state-of-the-art cinema room with Netflix and Sky Sports, a games room, ample outdoor spaces with BBQs and much more.
We offer our guests free unlimited high-speed fibre WiFi and a scrumptious free breakfast everyday during their stay. Fresh towels are available on demand anytime you like.
We have a variety of rooms which include spacious private double's, twins, triples, a family room, 4-bed dorms, a female dorm room and a generous 8-bed dorm. Reception is open everyday between 6:30am - 9pm but we can arrange to welcome you if you are arriving later. Please note the property has two levels of stairs and is not suitable for wheelchair access.
Our friendly staff can help with booking a variety of local activities and onward journeys including the Interislander and Bluebridge ferries to Picton.
Reception is open daily from 6:30am - 20:00pm.
Late check-ins can be arranged with prior notice. If no one is at the reception desk, there will be a contact number left.
We do not accept groups of more than 8 people.
We cannot always guarantee that guests from a group booking will be in the same room or any booking will be in the same room for the duration of the stay, though we will always try our very best!
We do not allow minors under the age of 17 in shared rooms, with or without guardians. Families are welcome, but would be required to book an entire room.
