I loved this place! Lovely, friendliest staff ever - and the sweetest dog, Milly, plus you are invited to walk her. If you're a dog lover, it's so much fun to take her out. She loves everyone and everything. The dorms can be a little crowded, but the place is so great it's worth it - and the private rooms are amazing, I'd recommend them. Picton is worth spending an extra night - most people bypass it for Kaikoura or Christchurch, but it's one of the best small towns in NZ for relaxing.
