This backpackers has got to be the best in Nelson. The facilities are top notch and always cleaned to perfection every day. Bunk beds are spacious and comfy, didn't hit my head once! The courtyard area with hammocks makes for some great relaxation or socialising with other travellers. My only complaint is that it was so booked up I could only stay 4 nights!
Overall amazing place with a great pub next door and staff that are all super friendly!

This has by far been the best hostel I've came across in the south island. They do amazing dinners in the evening and breakfasts in the mornings. The staff were very helpful and really friendly, most of all the rooms were very clean and all had a good layout.

I was in Nelson only for few hours and I decided to stay in this hostel. The staff is great, friendly and very helpful to plan your trip or things to do around! Rooms are clean and well furnished and there is a free breakfast!
well recommended!

Great place to stay! The owners are lovely. Nothing is ever a problem, they are so helpful snd always happy and smiling. Really enjoyed staying here, spent a total of six nights over three weeks at the backpackers. The price is good, breakfast (included) is also good, a full kitchen has everything you need including a coffee plunger. The private room are comfortable and the backpackers is well located, 5 minute walk to the city. Would highly recommend staying here during your stay in Nelson, but book early! Rooms book out quickly, word is getting out how good this place is!

We were there two times for only one night on the way to the able tasman track. We had a 2 Person-Room and it was clean and comfortable. You should try the Bar at the Hostel. The Burgers are very good! We would stay there again!
