We stayed at the Villa Backpackers Lodge for one night over the Easter holidays in an ensuite room. The property is very pretty and colourful, our room was small and basic but had everything we needed. The hooks on the wall was a nice touch as there wasn't much floor space. The bathroom was clean. I was expecting our room to be noisy since it was over some shared bathrooms but we both slept well (and I'm a light sleeper). The bed was a little too soft but didn't impact our sleep.
The buildings sprawl around the property so there are lots of little places to sit and enjoy some peace and quiet. There is a spa outside that is open until 9pm but we didn't use it. I especially liked warming up after dinner by the pot belly stove in the middle of the courtyard.
There were two kitchens, one large and one small. As our room was closest to the smaller kitchen we used that one. It was clean and had everything we needed. The free spices including basil, oregano, salt, pepper were a bonus.
We took Millie, the hostel dog for a walk in the morning. She was a lot of fun and got us out exploring Picton in the morning.
There is an amazing bakery next door and I believe it opens fairly early.
