Fabulous 8.8 From 25 reviews

Very good 8.0
Were fantastic about arranging late check in. Small but immaculate private room. Bathrooms reasonable. Didn't have a chance to check out the complimentary breakfast but great that it was available. Handy to everything.

Very good 8.0
Comfortable hostel and freshly baked scones!
Nice homely and comfortable hostel. The husband and wife running the place are so nice and make you feel at home and even gave me a lift to the bus stop on my departure day! There are freshly baked cheese scones for breakfast and lots of comfortable communal areas - lounge, tv room, dining/lounge, reading room, sun room and kitchen. Lovely place to relax from travelling for a couple of days, thank you!

Great extras.
I was very surprised with Tombstone. Came with extras I didn't realise. Use of bikes to get around town and discover Picton. Hot tub to relax in. Nice view from room. Friendly chilled out area to cook meals and hang out.
James, au2 night trip
Good 6.0
Room smelled of wet, mildewy socks, as did the bathrooms which didn't seem to be kept up with - there were beer bottles, used towels, and water all over the floor from when we arrived to when we left. Also, it was very noisy past 10PM when we were trying to sleep. Though proximity to Bluebridge couldn't be better and rollaway bed for child was set up before arrival which was appreciated.

Fun and cosy
This hostel is so homely, with two lovely cats and a cute doggy. There's free tea and coffee to enjoy in the big kitchen or terrace, and free breakfast includes freshly baked cheese scones or toast with spreads. If you fancy a night in there's lots of lounge space with DVDS and a tv, a hot tub, pool table and table tennis. Our queen ensuite was the best we have stayed in so far with a great bed, hot shower and access to a balcony with a view. The friendly staff arranged a wine tour for us, which was brilliant, and recommended the best walks in the area. There are also plenty of parking spaces and easy access to the ferry.
