    My sister and I were both impressed by the kindness of the lady who runs it. She helped us book a boat including visit to Bird island and pickup after a 3 to 4hour hike which she encouraged us to take on the Charlotte track. Also she found us a ride to Nelson with one of those staying there when the bus was sold out. Truly amazing effectiveness.

    This hostel is nice. Bathrooms are spacious which I appreciate and the beds were comfy. Did have an issue with one of the other people staying in my dorm but the staff remedied the situation easily. Parking is easy and breakfast was always plenty in the morning whereas other hostels will run out too quickly. The vibe of the hostel is really quiet. Didn’t seem like much socializing happening. Otherwise good stay

    I loved my stay here. Nicci was an absolute sweetheart, she bajrd muffins for breakfast for us. The whole place felt like some, but there was a second kitchen in case you wanted some calmness. Great location, just on the main street and opposite of a grocery store. Would highly recommand it!

    Had a lovely stay here, the staff are wonderful. Free breakfast is a plus. One of the birds will serenade you if you stand next to him which is adorable! Would have been great if there were more than 4 bathrooms for the whole hostel and some lockers too. Other than that the place is perfect.

    Not sure what the hype is about. Good price for what you get I guess. It was very loud at night with peoples voices echoing in the hallways. Felt very much like a converted nursing home which was odd. The town of picton is pretty bare bones. Wouldn’t recommend spending a night there unless you’re going on out trips during the day. The oatmeal breakfast was fine. The host was okay. Birds made a mess on the deck outside. Wouldn’t recommend hostel or town.
