We spent three nights here in a double (actually a triple) en suite. Nice size room and bath, tucked into a back corner. Clean, quiet, and everything functioned. Nice common area and kitchen too. Helpfully got us booked on a trip to the Tasman track, along with directions to stores and the bus station. Easy walking distance to downtown. The much-mentioned chocolate pudding was excellent, came with vanilla ice cream, and for anyone from the US out there, is more like cake than what we call chocolate pudding. :)

This place is my number 1. The staff are friendly, and always around to help out. The free chocolate pudding is amazing, the rooms are clean as well as the other facilities. The lounge is a great place to chill and read a book by the fire, or socialize with all the other great people that seem to stay here. I'd live here if I could!

We loved our recent stay at Tasman Bay backpackers - we stayed in a immaculate double room, and the initial reception welcome was very friendly. The attention to detail is great here, from the 100% Kiwi soundtrack played in the communal areas through to the free (and delicious) chocolate pudding served nightly at 8pm. Easily one of the best hostels we've stayed in, in NZ (and Nelson is magical anyway).

Lovely hostel with a very homely vibe. Beds where very comfy and the room was spacious. Showers and bathrooms were all clean and had hot powerful water. Each night there if free chocolate pudding provided which was delicious. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Also in a really good location. Would definitely stay again!
