So peaceful & such a friendly vibe, plenty of communal space and showers were so hot! Great area and about 5 minute walk from the ferry. Wifi is free and is fast! Staff are lovely too

It was awesome and it's very near the waterfront so you get commanding views of the surroundings. The only thing I didn't like is that the bunk beds are quite complicated to use (one ladder for two beds) so I had a hard time going up and down the bed. The rooms also need more power outlets.

Great location, close to the main street and waterfront. Easy walk to the ferry. Really liked the atmosphere in this place, like a big beach-house, nice upstairs common areas to chill out and meet people, desk chairs outside. Slightly annoyed staff member wouldn't let me do a late check-in, stuck outside in a big storm until morning as a result. But overall good value for money, would stay again.

It's a lovely, homely place, with comfy, cosy beds. It's really easy to get to from the ferry terminal, and it's just across from the beachfront and the town centre.

Decent place to stay for a night after getting the ferry. Rooms were fine and facilities were ok. The whole place is just a bit old and needs modernising a bit.

Fab place to stay in Picton, central, great staff and all the facilities you need. Sadly very noisy as can hear all activity above room with creeky ceiling so impossible to lie in: but everything else was fantastic. Free fishing rods and bikes too!

Small, clean hostel, which is very near to the ferry terminals. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The free coffee and tea is a nice freebie. They also have an eco-friendly dryer for your laundry: drying outside in the small backyard ;) Only the room (4-bed dorm) was really small. Not much place for 4 people to leave their luggage.

Great location, the staff couldn't do simple math and tried to short us money, twice. I'd stay there again, and recommend it to others, just be sure to count the change they give back to you.
