Our stay was amazing. Great beds, very confortable, cozy and quiet hostel very near from downtown but yet not on a busy street. Chocolate pudding with ice cream made every night and that is sincerely amazing. Feels just like home. Very clean and the people were very nice. Perfect place to stay to relax. Ps: free jaccuzzi. :)

Cute little hostel seems more based towards families as was woken very early by children shouting. Great distance to the Main Street of Picton. The room was very clean just a shame you had to go outside for the shower and toilet as we stayed in very bad weather so got wet a lot. The staff were so friendly and helpful.

Nice hostel, specially if you're looking for a longer place to stay. Easy vibe at the hostel with very friendly staff! Chocolate cake at 8pm is simply lovely!

Very clean hostel and great free choc pudding with ice cream. However bad that wifi only works in lobby and sometimes doesn't even work at all. Probably the most annoying thing is that kitchen closes from 10 am to 11 am that is right after you do the checkout and you intend to have breakfast.

This place has a lot of potential, but I don't think I had the best possible experience. I'm not sure what the shuttle van is for if not to help out residents when buses are late or the weather is inclement. In addition, the front desk person was more interested in dismissing the resident than in answering, or even listening to, the resident's questions about activities in the area.

Adequate stay. However there were issues regarding the logistics, such as the fact that i booked a twin bed but ended up with a double bed and then was charged twice on my card for the room. I let the first issue slide, but because i'm from Australia there was an international fee charged on my card twice and the refund for double payment didn't cover the whole fee which i believe should have been covered, especially regarding the inconvenience caused!

A lovely place to rest for the night! I wasn't feeling too well the night I stayed here but felt like the staff were really lovely and made me feel like if there was anything I needed they would have helped me out! Even though my stay was short, I loved the homely and cosy feeling you got from staying here! There was yummy chocolate pudding in the evenings and hot water bottles and blankets and free wifi! I would definitely stay here again and recommend this place to stay to fellow travellers :)
