Picton is a small place, but they have quite a few accommodation options. I was on a budget so I decided to give Tombstone a try on account of the positive reviews I'd seen on here. It worked out to be a great choice!
I stayed in a 3 bedroom dorm (which I had to myself on the first night.) The room is simply but handsomely kitted out and was very clean and tidy. It had its own bathroom which was also spotless.
The hostel is located on the edge of town, but Picton is so small it's like a 5 minute walk to main street, so don't worry. Because of the location the hostel is very quiet, which makes for good, peaceful sleeping! The communial ares were tidy, and the small kitchen was well kept and adequate for the size of the place. The lady owner also makes cheese scones for breakfast which are heavenly!
The owners were super nice and helpful, I went out to Nelson for a few days and the let me leave a bag in their office so I didn't have to drag it with me. On my way back, they also gave my travelling companion a lift to the ferry terminal, which saved her having to hump her bag out there by herself, which was very kind.
All up, I highly recommend the hostel. It is clean, friendly, safe, well priced and very pleasant. Solo travellers, couples, small groups and families would all be comfotable here.
