Hear it from the traveler:

 

Had a cosy stay in Bunker's Backpackers for a night prior to 10 days on the North West Circuit. We were met on arrival by Tara who showed us our room and the guest facilities. Great lounge complete with library. Cosy fire, spacious communal dining table. Fantastic outdoor deck. We'll definately be back when we embark on our next tramp.

2. Stewart Island Backpackers

Another cheap accommodation option in Stewart Island is Stewart Island Backpackers, the largest backpackers in the island. The management of this backpacker has recently changed hands and it is being renovated. The facilities offered are kitchen, lounge area with TV, camping ground, barbecue area, laundry, internet and more. 

This is what the visitor had to say:

 

We heard good reviews of this place before we even got there. After tramping for several days in the bush, we found plenty of hot water for showers, and laundry facilities good. The area for sitting in was spacious and the kitchen adequate. It was nice to be able to go outdoors to eat at covered picnic tables. Shared toilet facilities did not worry us. The 2 bedrooms our group had were a bit crowded but the clean sheets were a luxury after being out in the bush. We enjoyed our 4 days that we stayed.

I stayed there for 4 nights and love it! The staffs are helpful and accommodating. My only complaint was the burned fried eggs I had for breakfast one time. Though I finished the eggs, so nothing that major. My room is small but I paid for a single room so it is ok with me. No view too but I liked it for it is not too below the pub. I specifically requested for it that I be put in a room not directly below from the pub. The bathrooms are clean and the food is just wonderful, especially the sea food chowder is not to be missed.

We loved our stay at Kaka including the gorgeous studio apartment, the verandah and the visiting birdlife. This is a quiet, well run place where nothing is too much trouble for the owners. I would happily return and spend more than our two nights just for the accommodation. We were warm and comfortable with internet and tv provided and good coffee, tea and other provisions available.
