- “ 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. ”
