Spent three nights in private room. Friendly welcome on arrival by the owner who also suggested a few things that we could do whilst in Nelson. This was very helpful as neither my partner or I had been before.
Good free breakfast and good deals on food and drink available in bar downstairs.
Excellent location for walking into town.
Would recommend.

The hostel is close to the town centre, but still quite peaceful. The rooms are large and clean, with comfy beds. The backpackers has seperate areas, outdoor and indoor, for guests. The breakfast was plentiful, and the deals for the pub meals and drink was generous. A great place to meet people and explore Nelson.

I am sure that you will find things wrong with this hostel but you will at any accommodation unless it's 5 star. I thought it was perfect! The people is a pub onsite with cheap drinks and cheap food, the kitchen was well equipped, the beds were sturdy and comfortable (to many hostels have I thought the bed was going to fall apart if I moved) the place was spotless and most of all the staff are fantastic. The owners will happily sort you out should you need help including a lift to the station etc. I can only recommend that you stay here as long as you can. Best hostel of my whole trip!

Very clean and comfortable. Great location. Nice bar, breakfast and outdoor seating area. Friendly and helpful staff. The room was spacious and the bed comfortable. This is one of the top backpackers in NZ. Highly recommended.

Glad I read the previous reviews and chose to stay here. 10min or so walk from the main street n a lovely quiet area. Off street parking for my rental car. I had a single room with en suite. Fabulous.

As well as the backpackers $10 special for dinner there is a good selection of meals if youre hungrier. And don't forget the wifi and breakfast .
