Had a great time with the other people and the staff were very friendly!
Getting on the bus the next morning! After 3 hrs "sleep"
Easy to fine and get to from the ferry. Handy to shops when you have no transport. Comfortable areas to relax and plenty of space to prep food etc.
The railway and works yard right next door that started working at 2am in the morning and was very loud.
Location is great for the ferry, nice fireplace
Tiny room, signs about bed bugs around which made me think there were bed bugs, slightly soulless bathroom facilities and generally a lack of comfort/cosyness about the place. The guy working there was nice and other guests were cool.
great with help and advise. Being a walker it was a great suggestion to walk the picton trail
A great, relaxed atmosphere in a convenient spot and with an open and sociable hostel interior.
very central and near the ferry terminal very nice staff
not very clean a little bit run down
I found the room at up like a hotel room with lovely laundered linen and towels nicely rolled and set nicely on the bed. It was really quiet in the mornings and not too late at night. It is so central. Showers were great pressure and hot. Would go back again.
The showers could do with a coat of paint.
Location to local transport and shops
Staff and location
the bathrooms appeared a little unclean
Comfy bed, Good Kitchen, good bathroom, and Toilet and Laundry facility's. Would recommend Fat Cod and I will stay again
Late arrivals coming into room
This was perfect for my travel up to the North Island. Staff were friendly and helpful and the room was clean and comfortable. 1 min walk across to restaurants and cafes.
it was a little noisy through the night with the marina right beside the accommodation. Lots of digger driving around arranging containers for shipping. This did not bother me though.
after staying there ,you sure appreciate all other accomadation
bed old , dirty carpet, very run down shower' toilet block, overall impression; a dump
Great common area, and close location to the ferry
Bathrooms were inconvienent
Cozy and lovely place to stay. You can easily feel yourself welcome. Free dinnersoup every day.
The whole building was cold. Heating stuff doesent work as it should.
This place was great. Highly recommended for a term in Picton. Everyone was very helpful and the facilities are well kept. Plus, free soup every night!
