    Helpful staff, hot tub, comfortable beds that don't squeak and it was really clean. Plus the communal food times make it a really good atmosphere to connect with people.

    It's very nice to spend one night in Picton. This hostel is cute and lovely. I booked one 6 female bed but I owed the whole room by myself. It's very clean but without locker of the door. I had a wonderful evening time with free chocolate pudding and ice cream. What's more, I had an interesting conversation with a couple from France. It's a good place to meet travelers who stopped here for the ferry.

    I found this place to be very average, there was no where to keep your stuff other than on the floor. Only one outlet per dorm room and my room was very smelly. The reception did the bare minimum and wasn’t particularly helpful. I didn’t like how many different common areas there were, it seemed to cause people to break off into small groups so it harder to meet people. And the real bummer was that you have to pre book time slots in the hot tub, for 30 minutes or 1 hour sessions.

    Dont stay here!! The room was smelly, and the window was too tiny to let fresh air in. The showers were dirty, the kitchenware was disgusting. There was no atmosphere and no sense of security because there were only a few tiny lockers in the hallway and all of them locked and the door to the room didnt lock automatically and my roommates just kept leaving the door unlocked. The kitchen was constantly full of people there was no room to cook. 3 bathrooms for 6 rooms with at least 4 beds in them.
