The place is neat and tidy but there are a lot of spiderwebs everywhere which freaks me out abit. If renting out the rooms make sure they are free of them. The bathroom needs new shower curtains, very mouldy. The place is very dated and basic. Which isn't a problem being a backpackers. We have been to a few backpackers and camp parks around the country and this one was the most expensive and have to say not one of the nicest. The price is very high for what you get. Seeing that backpackers are for people who are on tight budgets. That's where I feel you being ripped off.
The outside garden is pretty but where the rusty barbeque is, is very run down. I wouldn't want to spend time outside. Never used the kitchen or lounge facilities so cant judge on that.
This is definitely not a case you get what you pay for, otherwise I would have had a spa bath.

A bit confused about the high number of 5 star reviews so wanted to leave a review based on our recent stay.
Pros: the kitchen area is really well-equipped, the lounge is huge and has lots of books etc, the back garden is very pretty, there is off street parking round the back and the bathrooms are clean and large. The manager/staff member who greeted us was a little cold at first but over the next days was really friendly and chatty, telling us about the wildlife etc.

Cons: the description of "tastefully refurbished" did not apply to our room or others that we saw (through open doors before people had checked in). It is old and tired- in fairness I imagine that it's difficult to find time to refurbish this place as it seems to be the largest accommodation option for the area. No problems with an old or tired building or room or facilities at all but I think it's unfair to set expectations as recently refurbished when from the areas of the building we saw that was not the case.

All in all, a fair option for somewhere that doesn't have lots of accommodation, but take the descriptions with a pinch of salt so your expectations aren't set too high.

Rooms are clean and complete. I had a shared bathroom room. The bathroom is better than most... ie there is plenty of places to hang leave your stuff while you shower. So you don't have to magically balance everything on one hook. Location is also good.

Room tip: I think the front rooms would have a lovely view of the huge Redwood in the hospital grounds opposite. That tree is impressive to me.

In the chilly weather this very warm accommodation was very welcome. The kitchen facilities are excellent, lovely lounge and other warm areas to relax. Very clean and comfortable. We only stayed one night, but would have loved to stay longer.

The accommodation is a converted Nurse's Home. It is very large with in excess of 30 rooms. It has heaps of character.... but it is a backpackers' accommodation. It was very clean and had the normal backpackers' facilities. It was extremely warm which is important when you're in Reefton. The Manager also runs the local taxi/drop-off and pickup facility for those going bush.

Room tip: All the rroms are the same apart from being either single, double, or twin.
