Lovely clean hostel with friendly staff. The room was basic but that we expected. Chocolate pudding in the evening was a nice touch. The WiFi in our was poor but not the biggest issue. Good parking and very close to the ferry.

This is the perfect place if you are looking for basic accomodation. We stayed in the family room, and yes it is basic (as remember its a backpackers) but very clean and tidy - so what more can you ask for. The staff are super friendly and the facilities are great. You won't be disappointed here.

The hostel was very sweet, literally - every day at 8pm they serve free chocolate fudge with vanilla ice cream! The rooms themselves were spacious and clean, the common area was well equipped and comfortable. Only downside was the wifi - while being free, there's no reception of it outside the common area.

When I booked to stay here I was of course fully aware that it was a backpackers but I did expect the private room with an en suite to be a better standard for the money we paid. In hindinsight we should have paid a bit extra and gone to a motel as we thought it was pricey in comparison....

One of our favourite hostels in NZ. Free breakfast, soup and most of all chocolate pudding with ice cream! This became the focal point of our stay! Staff were super friendly, kitchen was good size and well stocked, room was clean and comfortable (few ants but no biggy ) and free Wifi also. Would definitely stay here again!

It's a really nice place to stay in picton. The owners are really nice and professionnal. The beds are comfortable. The rooms are really clean. The only thing i can complain about is the quality of the Wi-Fi, but it's free so... probably one of the best backpacker in the south island Ps : don't miss the chocolate pudding at...
