We have a mixture of doubles, twins and four- or six-bed dorm rooms. All rooms are have ensuites and linen is provided for everyone.
Outside of the room you can relax in one of our hammocks in the sunny courtyard, watch a movie in the TV lounge, compete against other travelers in our backpackers games room (table tennis, darts or fooseball) or enjoy a cold beer with some our locals in the 'best beer garden in Nelson'.
On that note, how can we forget to mention that our Backpackers comes with its very own English-style pub where you can meet the locals, and to encourage interaction we have backpacker prices, just show your room card at the bar! Can't argue with that now can we!!
Reception hours: 8am to 9pm, so if you are arriving outside this hours, please contact us and we will rescue you at the front door!
See you soon.
