Really good location considering the ferries! Clean facilities. Wifi was good and fast. Helpful and understanding staff. Would definitely stay again if passing through Picton.

Quiet, cozy and close to the ferry and the main street of Picton. I ended up having the dorm room to myself, which was nice. You had to push a button on the showers to activate 8 minutes of hot water, but it lasted longer than I expected.

Must pay for locker use to store your bag but it's a fairly secure location and is monitored by cctv cameras. Older building with little atmosphere but still a pleasant place.

Cute, small place. Very quiet though, probably because of the season. The staff was nice and there was free soup and breakfast. It was extremely cold in the room though, luckily they have extra blankets .

We stayed one night in a private double room. The hostel is super close to the ferry terminal and the Intercity bus stop, which is handy. The room was spacious and clean. The kitchen was fine, and the free soup in the evening was nice. The bathroom had shared facilities for males and females. The showers only allowed 8 minutes of hot water at a time, and even then the water was barely warm. Overall, this would be a fine hostel to stay in for a short time.
