Kept coming back for that chocolate pudding. In all seriousness, this is a great place. Clean rooms and friendly staff. Close to town centre but not too close. Quiet vibe but still enjoyable. Pretty indoor and outdoor hangout area. Did I mention the chocolate pudding?

I recently stayed at this hostel and it was a great experience. The hostel is located an approximate 5 minute walk from the city centre. However, it is a quiet area at nighttime. The dorm was a good size and had plenty of hooks and power points (big bonus point). The beds were comfortable and sturdy. Perhaps a downside was that the room got very hot at night. We in the dorm left the sliding door open to let air in, which some might not be happy about. Maybe providing a fan might help this situation. A small kitchenette provided cooking facilities, but I only stayed two nights. The shared showeroom and toilets were clean and well maintained too. There was plenty of outside space to relax in and hang out laundry to dry. The main kitchen had free chocolate pudding available at

This was the second time our group of mountainbikers stayed at the Tasman Bay Backpackers. Excellent facilities for a big group and close to the great Nelson MTB trails. Really friendly and helpful staff. Good carpark area for bike set up and lock up for bikes.

Probably the best hostel I have stayed at in my travels in New Zealand. The staff is so friendly and they even picked me up from the bus stop in town - there is also a bus stop just in front of the hostel. The room was very clean and the lounge is very cosy. Breakfast is varied and there is a lot to choose from. The idea of the chocolate pudding is so good - apart from the delicious pudding I got to meet a lot of people that I would not have spoken to. Only fault is that there are no female dorms, but if you book a triple room they will try to put you with other girls.
