They have no lockers in the rooms, but you can leave your stuff at reception. Every morning you get free waffles for breakfast and they have this awesome meal deal. For 10 dollars you get both dinner and dessert in their restaurant (or lunch). The hosts are really friendly and it is nice to meet the locals in the bar. Free 2 hr bicycle hire. It is a 10 min walk to downtown and a 5 min walk to freechoice supermarket. Their internet is excellent!

About a 15 min walk from the center. Comfy rooms and it has a great pub attached with dinner discounts for guests.

Prince Albert Backpackers was FANTASTIC! Amazing value - breakfast included, assistance with booking trips to Abel Tasman, local Nelson recommendations, and DELICIOUS $10 lunch/ dinner options for backpackers at the bar. Of the 4 hostels I stayed at on South Island New Zealand, PAB blew them all away in every category, but most significantly in service, hospitality, and amenities. Be sure to book early!!

Free breakfast, free wifi (unlike other hostels in NZ that give you a limited time.) Nice staff. Kitchen is unclean and fridge is overstuffed. Backyard communal area is cute and free parking is available as well. Bedsheets were old and found small hairs on them.

Ideal location and great atmosphere within dining and communal areas. Rooms were clean and ensuites were well equipped. Easy access to car park for transferring luggage into rooms. Breakfast was good with waffles available however be warned there can be a queue for the machine! Enjoyed the stay and would recommend to anyone looking to stay in Nelson!
