  • Loved the hostel because it was so well run & clean. The location is excellent, near the centre of Nelson, but off the main roads so that it is quiet. The staff were very friendly & helpful.

  • Lovely place to stay. Staff were very pleasant from when they picked me up from the bus to when I left I felt very welcomed. Wifi was good, social areas were spacious and it's just a short walk to the bay. The room was maybe a little cramped and maybe a limited number of showers, but who cares, they give you free chocolate cake and ice cream. I would stay in a medium sized hole in the ground if it came with free chocolate cake.

  • I loved the 4 bed accommodation and the fact that the wooden bunk was firmly attached to the wall so no creaking or groaning. Breakfast and chocolate pudding included in the cost a definite bonus. The best hostel I have used in Nelson :-)
