The hostel is very clean, the owner is a nice guy and they serve chocolate pudding and ice cream for free at 8.00pm. The lodge is a good place to stay in Picton. The kitchen is clean as well as all the facilities. You can even be picked up by them directly from the ferry. Enjoy!

Perfect bunk beds, no movement and not a sound, very pleasant sleeping! Friendly staff arranging for free dessert every night, clean, pickup service and a nice quiet location a bit out of town. Very enjoyable backpacker accomodation!

Just stayed one night and wished I had booked a couple more! Friendly and welcoming staff, clean rooms, clean bathrooms and a lovely atmosphere with friendly like minded backpackers. Liked the added extras of pick up and drop off to the ferry terminal/bus station and hot chocolate pudding.

We only stayed one night, but it was overall a pleasant experience. A warm welcome from the manager, unexpected free breakfast as a special treat, clean rooms, well-equipped kitchen and location in a quiet part of town. However the rooms could be a little more soundproof - we could hear quite clearly what our neighbours are saying in their room.

I only spent one night there, but I had a really good time there! The staff bake a really nice chocolate pudding with hockey pockey ice cream (what else?), there are hammocks outside, good lockers, and they probably have the cosiest TV room in NZ: tons of DVDs, and plenty of actual mattresses and pillows to feel all comfy while...
