A real cozy hostel not far from the ferry terminal. Everything was clean for the most part and the kitchen was a decent size. I recommend.

Great location, very close to the harbor (walking distance approx. 5 mins). The way the facilities are arranged didn't create a good atmosphere because you have no opportunity to get some privacy. All is open (kitchen, living area, etc) The rooms, kitchen and bathroom facilities are clean though.

Overall a great place to stay a night. Friendly staff, good atmosphere and good facilities. Most of rooms were left open though, so security wasn't great. Fantastic location.

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.
