If I was to be very picky - could be useful for more power sockets in the room
Felt like I was staying at someone's house. Very nice homely feel. Lovely garden space. Free wifi. Comfy beds. Bedside lamp. Big, airy rooms with high ceilings. Sink in the bedroom.
Decor is quite old and tatty, which was fine by me, but the bedding really could do with replacing. Though perfectly clean, some of it is very old, worn and/or stained.
Quirky, friendly hostel in a good location for the ferry and town. Good kitchen facilities, nice big living room, and good, fast and FREE wifi. Staff are v helpful and also willing to do runs to the ferry when needed. I also liked the fact there were plugs next to every dorm bed.
Free bikes and spacious garden
- very friendly and helpful staff - well equipped hostel: barbecue, hot tub, nice garden - clean facilities - free wifi
The second night some guys were listening to loud music and nobody stopped them (we had to get up early for the ferry)
The walking distance to the ferry. The location - very good from Nelson. Free parking near by.
Staff behind reception desk were slightly over-stretched on occasion and unable to answer questions (this may be unavoidable due to "peak hour" when lots of people arrive from the bus or ferry). But they were able to enlist the help of other informal staff / long-term guests to show me how things worked, so was not a problem. Hostel is on main road (State Highway 1) and next to railway crossing, so noise may disturb light sleepers, but was no problem for me.
My room was comfortable, very clean and good value for money (NZD 82 per night for an en-suite twin room). Facilities were good and well-organised. Hot spa was pleasant after a long day's walking. Kitchen, lounge (with book exchange) and outdoor seating areas also very good. Location is great in the centre of Picton, close to all pubs, restaurants, supermarkets etc. The Intercity bus stops right outside and the ferry terminal (& car hire office) is 5 mins walk. Reception stays open until the evening bus from Christchurch arrives, even if it is late.
A charge for using dryer is $4!!
Location, Lounge, big room and friendly
Extremely small room
Friendly helpful staff
plugs and lights for every bed, sink in room. really nice patio
Friendly staff. Quirky! A bit of a tar dis. Lovely garden spaces.
Lots of flies in kitchen all the time They had a tv room but they hired it out as a room which was abit annoying.
Friendly helpful staff Nice rooms and very clean and homey Lots of room to sit and relax Free bike hire!
Comfortable and friendly. Well placed.A house with character.
the room was quite small given the amount of beds, there weren't enough showers for all the people staying at the hostel.
The Wi-Fi was really good, worked so well and was free which is unusual in New Zealand. The place was very nice with a good outside area and well located
there are two houses, one with good wifi, one with not that good wifi
nice people nice wifi nice kitchen and facilities nice outside area
Location is excellent, cleanliness and friendliness of people.
Limited parking space but if you move out before 10am Should be all good!
Convinent to ferry terminal
the lovely details
Could be more clean.
Staff friendly, pick up at the ferry, facilities, location.
Comfortable room and bed. Friendly helpful staff. Enjoyed chatting in the kitchen - lots of young folk from overseas - enjoying our lovely country. Would love to stay again.
We loved the location. The facilities were great. Very comfortable stay!! Would recommend to others.
A little noisy until 10 pm or so but quietened down after that until some girls came back about 12:30 and were talking very loudly outside the room. Asked nicely if they could keep it down and they happily went off to bed.
Huge kitchen, dining and lounge to share. Plenty of facilities ie: bathrooms, laundry etc. Room large with lovely bay window, comfy bed and our own little handbasin. Easy walk to foreshore, shops and ferry.
Booked a private room for some rest, was straight AC Ross dinning&living area
bed wasnt nice to sleep on.was horrible. we both didnt have a good sleep
close to everything
Wi-fi was slow for us.
Right in the centre of Picton, brilliant location and beautiful surroundings. Great backpackers to stay at when travelling.
Nice and cozy~
