Stayed for one night in a four person backpackers room. Overall the place is pretty nice with large common areas (including kitchen) and easily accessible location. The wifi connection is okay and my bed was good but my friends was terrible and they said they would rather sleep on the floor.

Great wee place to stay when you're looking for budget accommodation in the area. Rooms clean and tidy but some have shared facilities that can be busy - especially in the morning. The cooking facilities are good and if you prefer to eat out there is a great choice in the town. Worth a try.

We were recommended this place by some friends and loved our stay. We were in a 6 bed dorm for two nights. The room was a good size and comfortable, could do with some lockers and more power points though. The biggest thing for us (aside from free chocolate pudding and ice cream) was how clean the whole place is....

The downside of the place is the bad connection of Wi-Fi (at night) and narrow path to car park and limited parking space (if u need, drop by earlier than 6pm) Location : 10 mins drive to...

We stayed here for two nights whilst visiting Picton and thoroughly enjoyed it. The place is like a home away from home and your made to feel very welcome. Great Kitchen, with free chocolate cake at night! The hot tub was an added bonus. Thank you for a fantastic stay!

My hostel experience here might be a bit different from most. I ended up paying for a double room even though I was traveling solo (no more dorm beds for me!) and rented a car, so travel to and from the hostel was quite easy. Full disclosure: most of the folks stay in the dorms here and are traveling by...

This is by far one of the best hostels I have stayed at. It's clean, the staff are friendly, in a great location with all the facilities you need. The tv room is comfy and well designed like a mini cinema, the free breakfast is superb with so many options. We also had free pudding the first night we arrived...
