Property Information:

We offer our guests free unlimited Wi-Fi, a free hot breakfast and free bikes to explore the city. All rooms have an ensuite bathroom, and you can receive discounts around town with our branded wristband!

We, Mike and Nani, own and run this charming and endearing backpackers which operates inside a Heritage-class building that was originally built in 1888. It's now fully refurbished and caters to the modern traveler.

We have a large car park that we encourage Freedom Campers to use.

We are an easy five-minute stroll to the center of town where, on Saturdays, you can experience the famous Nelson Markets.

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 Foosball) or enjoy a cold beer with some of 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!
