Great place to stay, it is a small hostel in a very personnel atmosphere. We went there the second time within a few weeks and the manager even remembered us and our names. Great =)

Other than other hostels, this hostel is made up of small units which gives you a more personal feeling in the units. A big minus: They offer free WiFi and all we got was a voucher for 20min!

A good hostel but nothing special. We arrived late (the reception closed already at 8.30pm!!!) so they deposited an envelope with our key at the reception what is basically a good idea. However, the reception was behind the locked main door so we did not really know that there is an envelope for us nor how to get there. It was a coincidence that other patrons opened the door from inside so we were able to find our key. There might be better solutions for late arrivals.

An amazing place to stay and relax before or after the ferry from/to Wellington. They even have a spa in the hostel (which was the first time we saw it in a hostel). However, the only small disadvantage of this hostel was that it is far outside of the center of Picton so don't forget to buy all the things you need when you pass the center of Picton, otherwise you'll face a long drive back to the shops.The staff is really friendly and cooperative!

Security is a big issue in this hostel. Every couple of meters is another security gate that you have to open with your key card. Even the toilets and bathrooms are secured in this way. This might be a little bit too much. The free breakfast is appreciated, however, the breakfast area and facilities for this are far too small to serve all customers so you have to queue very long to get breakfast. It would be useful if there were more power plugs in the rooms and some small lights at the beds

Hi Markus, Thanks for taking the time to review us as feedback is extremely important to us especially as we continue to improve the facilities. It is important to us that our guests and their belongings are as safe and secure as possible. Yes all guests need to use their swipe keys to come onto the property and get access to the floors and bathrooms, not the kitchen however. There were certainly some busy weekends in the last month so we are now serving the free b/fast in the guest kitchen as well as the cafe and from 1st December it actually moves to our big conference room for summer. This will solve the issues with the lines and space. We will continue with renovations and improvements and bed side lighting and more power points is definitely something we'd love and will consider once the higher priority projects have been completed. I hope you enjoy the rest of your travel and we can welcome you back to Discovery one day. Happy travels! Anna Heaton Assistant GM

The hostel is a very familiar atmosphere and the owner is very friendly. Unfortunately, we were there out of session so there was almost nobody and the weather was not so good
