They have a shuttle waiting when the intercity bus arrives to pick you up! It was a nice surprise. The staff was helpful and the chocolate pudding each night was a delicious treat.

Really enjoyed my stay here! Really chilled out, yet friendly atmosphere. Chocolate pudding o'clock is a great idea- it gives people chance to mix without spending all their time checking Facebook. Friendly staff and clean accommodation, all within a short walk from the centre of Nelson.

A wonderful hostel. It has been so well thought out. The rooms are spacious, clean and well equipped. The hostel has a really homely feel, is comfortable, has a well equipped kitchen and lovely outdoor areas. My only gripe would be that the pillows are too thin. Stay here if you're in Nelson

It was as if you were an inconvenience to the staff in every way. The facility was not bad at all and that was what made up for the staff. Not sure if it was just a bad day, but smiling and showing kindness to customers goes a long ways.

Such an amazing hostel! Very home-like feel to it. Kitchen is spacious, great social vibe and just lovely staff. Absolutely loved the pudding cake. Best part of the day! Thanks again for the great stay!

A quiet and homey hostel with large communal living rooms filled with tables and comfy sofas, clean and well stocked kitchen, helpful staff, free WiFi, complimentary chocolate pudding and ice cream and a 'no devices' rule between 8 and 9pm. Beds in dorm bunks are fairly standard - frames aren't too squeaky but pillows a little on the thin side. Towels in the toilets would have been nice. Location is a good 10 min walk into the town centre.

First the greatness: - free chocolate pudding - free towels that are quite large - free filter coffee - free wifi - well laid out kitchen - nice comfy beds with linen and pillows And many more And the only drawback is that it's a wee walk from town, maybe 5-10 minutes however most of the super shuttles or tour shuttles will drop off here

As everyone says - free cake and ice cream each night! Staff were super nice and friendly when booking tour to Abel Tasman for kayaking and hiking. Kitchen, bathrooms and beds all kept clean and tidy. Big room for 6 beds so nothing felt crowded. Only downside - it's a bit of a hike if you're getting off a bus with all your stuff to carry, but most buses do stop here so just ask! :)
