Accommodation for the budget minded traveler

For over 27 years The Grapevine has been welcoming weary worldly backpackers to their door. Not more than 15 minutes from the Blenheim town centre, on the banks of the Opawa River, travelers have enjoyed the quiet laid back homely style ambience of our 120 year old Marlborough house.

We offer a variety of accommodation

Diana and Rob have been owners since opening the hostel 1991 and will do their best to ensure that you have a comfortable and memorable stay.

The room styles we offer are:

  • Two large double / twin rooms, which share one bathroom. This is the perfect set-up for a larger family or two couples traveling.
  • Double Rooms with communal bathrooms

  • We also offer larger dorm rooms with unique 3 tier bunks. To offer our guests the best privacy, each bunk comes with own light and curtain.
  • A separate house has weekly rates available for seasonal workers.
