- “ The price wasn't cheap, the property was run down and the facilities were all very dated..pity. The two ladies running the place seemed a little 'what choice have you got?' in their attitude, again a pity. Lastly location was a stones throw from the ferry but conversely the place backed onto the railway lines (spitting distance) and so sleep was problematic. ”

- “ When I arrived at the Picton Lodge, I felt like I was visiting a grandparent's house not the awesome kind, but one who tries to feed you 20-yr-old sweets and doesn't understand why you're not interested in their collection of doilies. It's dated. The lady-owner was considerate, but not particularly with it. There were no locks for the dorm-rooms and the only lockers cost 2$ every time you wanted to re-close them. If you need a place to sleep it does the trick, but not with any particular flair. ”

- “ Too many beds crammed into one room, no place to set packs. No key to lock door, anyone could come into hostel at any time of day or night. Cleanliness was definitely lacking in most areas. Dog was allowed to run free throughout hostel. ”
