Good place to stay while you wait for your ferry’s departure!”
Good price, cleanliness in all facilities, best ice-cream apple crumble and a chimney to relax in the living-room.

Nice but wifi didn’t work at room2 because it was a little far from the reception which is about 8 meters from room2.

Disappointing experience”
The room smelled like mildew and sweat. The guys checking people in and out seemed to have better things to do than their job. It was fine for one night but would not stay longer than that.

Best hostel in New Zealand.. ”
stay in a little villa, each one has three bedrooms, ita own living room and kitchen.. and the communal area has a hot tub, tv room and beautiful garden. its kitch and cool and has an absolutely beautiful sense of home about it. The staff are amazing and place is insanely clean (except when backpackers ruin it). Rooms are spacious and they offer tours. we've been travelling for almost 6months and this place is in my top 10 best hostels around the world. Lockers in each room would be my only suggestion.. but you can store valuables behind reception.

fine for budget stay but bedrooms and bathrooms need updating”
The hostel was ok and it is budget so it was fine but I've stayed in much nicer hostels at similar and even less prices. Tv shouldn't be advertised as it was a very old box with only two working channels. Dirt around the taps at the sink in the bedroom. The bed was old and uncomfortable and showers incredibly basic. It was very nice that a simple breakfast was provided and a pudding in the evening and the spa pool was nice. The location is great and the building looks lovely from the outside. Nice communal areas and it is great that they offer free bikes and fishing rods to guests.

Just Incredible”
I went there cuz i lost my bus after my Ferry from Wellintong arrived late and now i can say Thank You. It is an amazing and lovely place and one of my favourite places i've been in my life. It's a Victorian House plenty of rooms and spacoius place where you can take a rest,incredible and big Kitchen,extremely clean and also has a small Jacuzzi. Strategic localitation surronder by restaurants and Supermarkets. I wish to be back again.

overnight stay after taking evening boat crossing”
Good staff, simple but good room, simple and easy.
We took a double bed room. Small, simple, but cosy. A certainly 'no frills' bathroom but good shower. A cosy 'make your own' breakfast which you would expect at a backpackers. It had a good vibe, we arrived late and our key was waiting for us at the back door. Good, simple, handy location and just what we needed. Recommend and would use again.

A very friendly establishment”
Ideally situated for accessing the ferries and town facilities.
The friendly staff, admittedly backpackers themselves,made this particular establishment most welcoming. I believe the Villa would be the pick of the Backpackers in Picton, if not almost on the South Island of New Zealand.

今まで泊まった中で最高レベルのホステスです。”
清潔で過ごしやすく、スタッフのお兄さんもむっちゃ優しい。夜のデザートと朝食。ジャグジー、ジム、暖炉有り。フェリー乗り場や図書館、スーパーも歩いて直ぐ。 ただ僕が泊まったのが冬だったのでプレハブ造りの部屋はかなり冷えました。レセプションで無料で布団を貸し出しているらしいので、冬場は布団を借りる事をオススメします。
