This place is the pits. Gloomy run down, very noisy. I didn't fancy sharing a dorm with 20 other people so I got a private room. It said on the website it was 8m2 the person who measured this room is terrible at maths. It might of been 8 foot square if you were lucky. You had too walk through... More

Very clean and has a Greek theme to it. Stayed for a few days in a shared dorm. The ambience is quite nice too. Close to the ferry and there are a few cute cats around the place (see pic). Picton is a small town but getting around from here is convenient. Off street parking is also good. Can play... More

Very busy accommodation, mixed hostel and private rooms. Had private room with full kitchen, ensuite facilities, dining table and TV and couch. All very tired and worn but serviceable . Very convenient for the town for bars and restaurants and also for the inter island ferry.

Warm and cozy environment. We were there for 3 nights. Got a double. Room was simple and clean. No funny smells from the carpet. Shared bathroom was clean. Common kitchen was clean and tidy too. Place is near to everything. Host and gang gave a warm welcome and gosh! The place still seems like a maze to me. And I... More

Absolutely awesome place to stay, little out dated Deco but for the money I paid it was brilliant. The Staff were friendly and helpful. the services were good and there was a good atmosphere about the place. Would definitely come back here again.

My boyfriend and I have been backpacking all around Australia and were a couple of days into our New Zealand journey when we got to Picton. We've stayed in plently of hostels in the past 6 months and this is the only one I've stayed in where I didn't feel safe leaving my belongings out. So much so that we... More

Stayed here for one night. First impressions weren't all that bad. But the bars across the reception desk were freaking me out. We then got taken to our room. Up the ramps ... though what was meant to be a games room and through the kitchen. If cats are your thing your in the right place! The room was colourful... More

I stayed here for five nights in the large dorm (with no doors LOL) for $20 and absolutely loved it. Sheira and her team (with Shaun, Laura, Tony and woofers like Kenna, Elise, Hendrik, the lovely lady from Chile, Lena and Vanessa were very welcoming and helpful throughout my stay. It was clean and had a great atmosphere. This is... More
