Lovely little hostel with cheerful rooms and very friendly hosts. My husband and I stayed here for one night after leaving a particularly noisy hostel. This was the best sleep I've had in my entire life! Thank you Simon and family for hosting us. We will recommend to all of our friends visiting Nelson!

What a great place to stay. I was expecting something close to a backpackers, but instead this place is much closer to a hotel. The bathrooms & showers were clean, and maintained throughout the day by dedicated staff. The shower is on a 7 minute timer which is more than enough. We stayed during easter, and in the morning they put chocolates outside the door of each room which was magical & made our day (: There were also bikes for us to use which was really helpful! Loved using the pool table & the communal lounge was huge. Would happily stay here again - I was sad to leave!

We had a double room with a very comfortable bed, linen very clean. Bathrooms and toilets spotless, kitchens have everything you need. Owners are trying very hard to save power, water, and recycle rubbish. Easy access to town.

I actually booked this hostel based solely on TripAdvisor reviews and got really disappointed - no offense, maybe its just me as majority of the reviews were excellent. But I guess we have different opinions. The hostel seems like a hospital converted into a villa - feels and looks like a hospital. The rooms and sheets were clean, though. But the overall atmosphere really didn't do it for me. It was rather gloomy and a lil bit creepy. The walls are paper thin. You hear everything, really. No wonder they provide free orange ear plugs. Things could've been better if the shared toilets were clean - but seriously they were not. It looks like it needed a really good scrubbing. And not only that, it has the worst shower! They've put in a 5 min timer. That means you have to be very
