It a garden style backpackers hostel attached with a nice pub..
i been stay there for 10 days even at first i only planned to stay for just 3 days.
It is too comfortable to live there until i doesnt want to move so soon..

convenience location, can easily reach restaurant, cafe, walking track..
provide free wifi but sometimes not that stable inside out room..
kitchen is quite small but the kitchenware are enough..
individual bathroom even in a shared room.

provide free breakfast with not only toast n jam..coffee n tea..and also waffles, cereals, milk, juices..

Had a great stay at the Prince Albert. We stayed here for two nights on our short trip around the South Island ,and felt warmly welcomed immediately. This place is attached to a pub, provide free wifi and free breakfast in the mornings, and cheap meals at night, although we didn't get to take advantage of this as we were out and about doing as much as we could! The first night we stayed we went for a quick drink in the pub before heading up to our room, but Mike (owner/manager) and his friends who work and live there was just about to start a poker game and kindly asked us to join in; we ended up having a really good night with them!
Would definitely recommend staying here to anyone who is in Nelson, great price and great location.

Run by backpackers for backpackers. We stayed in a double that was the standard of a good bed and breakfast at the price of a hostel ... plus breakfast included! Owners are very nice. Pub serves well priced drink. nice atmosphere. Movie room to chill. All clean and well decorated. Very informative staff. Highly recommended. WiFi very good.

We all loved this backpackers! Stayed in a cosy 4 bed room with en suite, very clean and warm with lots of bedding and night lights. The free breakfast was great value as was the guest food and drink deals plus the wifi was unlimited and super fast. Short pleasant walk to town. Definitely recommend!

We stayed here for 2 days with our 2 boys (10 & 7). Clean and friendly staff. Food at the restaurant was very good. They have a kitchen for use as well as providing a simple breakfast free. Relaxed environment and PERFECT location. Great experience!
