    Nice stay

    Very nice location, walking distance from the store and restaurants. The facility has only few showers, so the wait time to take a shower may be long.

    Lovely stay before we caught the ferry the next day. The host was so nice, giving instructions on where to catch the ferry and the special porridge she makes is yum! Highly recommend

    Lovely staff that go above and beyond what you expect. Free, GIANT, breakfast with freshly made scones and muffins. Free, unlimited, strong WiFi. The beds were clean and comfortable and the bathrooms were as well. Location is very central to Picton; short walking distance to hikes, bars, cafes, and rental car companies. The best part, however, was definitely the staff :) would 10/10 recommend this place!

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Conveniently located with off street parking, the bunk in the dorm wasn't the most comfortable but typical of a hostel (I was a little concerned I'd fall out as there was no safety rail), the dorm room did have a wash basin which was handy, but the winner was the welcoming host and her amazing breakfast! I am already planning to stay again
