    A very welcoming hostel, wonderfully run by the owner, Sheera, whose witty a d whacky personality permeates the mood, environment and fabric of the building. I loved it there and would certainly return.

    Was a really nice hostel, with great people on a good location. The Owner was great and always happy! In the lounge were always people and everyone could join. We had great and funny evenings. The only negative point was that we didn't get much sleep, because there was a doorway to our room, which made a noise at every passage.

    Excellent hostel with a great vibe. The host lady is lovely and provides free breakfast and desert! The walls of the rooms are very thin, and some of the rooms don't have glass in the windows, making for a bit less privacy. Location is perfect, right next to the beach, restaurants and ferry. I would highly recommend!

    I was very surprised by the 28 people dorm. It is 28 but it has been divided in alcoves from 2 to 8 wgmhich makes it more private than you'd think. Plus having Eva Cassidy singing over your breakfast is not a bad way to start the day and the library is amazing!

    The staff were very very friendly. The place has an underwater theme which was cool; spongebob sheets. Free desert in the evening was nice. Security Lockers cost extra. Luggage storage wasn’t very secure either, but I wasn’t really worried.

    Lovely backpackers with such positive and energetic hosts! Really nice location with the beach and harbour just a couple of minutes’ walk and close to the ferry and bus stops. Kitchen well equipped and lovely that they provide home made cake for us. Would definitely recommend.

    A great quirky hostel. How many hostels do you know with mermaids painted on the toilet wall ? If you are catching / arriving on ferry in Picton it's a place well worth stopping off at.

    I had the most fabulous stay here. I ended up staying an extra night due to travel issues and it felt like staying at home for another night, everyone is very friendly and chatty and felt very safe. This was perfect for what I needed
