Our hostel is family-run, purpose-built, spacious, very clean and homely.

All year round we have free, delicious, homemade hot chocolate pudding and ice cream. From May to November there's a free all-you-can-eat winter breakfast, while from April to November we've got free unlimited Wi-Fi!

We have a large selection of doubles, twins, small dorms and six share dorms. In the winter we also offer double rooms at a single occupancy rate.

Outside you'll find a well-used hammock, swing chair and an edible garden which includes herbs, grapes, kiwi fruit, feijoas, lemons and more.

We also have free bike rental, off-street parking and free luggage storage!

Just like your favourite café, we have great music and friendly, genuine people. Everyone says it has a nice feel to it. We're just five minutes' walk from the main street - far enough away to avoid city noise but close enough that it's an easy walk to shops, cafes, etc. We attract a wide variety of nationalities and ages and we try to ensure that everyone feels welcome and enjoys their stay.

We also have a similar hostel in Picton called Sequoia Lodge Backpackers - check them out here on Hostelworld!
Prices are per person per night.

All buses will pick and drop off right outside our hostel.

If you have a car then as you are driving into Nelson (from Picton) you come to a roundabout. You turn left (signpost says to city centre) and then you turn the first left into Wainui St and this turns into our street - Weka Street. You will see our sign on the right-hand side of the road. We have a large off-street car park.

My personal definition of a backpacker is not someone who carries a backpack, but someone who just wants to save money to travel longer.
