Had a lot of fun at this hostel, really nice outside area, perfect for summer. Not far from local amenities, comfy beds.


very good hostel an pleased with my stay there


Great atmosphere and super cool managers (lots of local insight to offer). The free pudding is wonderful. Good wifi with ok coverage to rooms. Lots of free stuff to explore the area. The kitchen, fridges, & showers are small for this many people though (often overcrowded). Good beds but limited power points. Place needs to grow with it's popularity!


Staff were very friendly and helpful, communal areas were great spaces for meeting people. Kitchen and rooms were clean. Overall very good.


Nice hostel, good value for the price.


Terrific place to stay- staff were a delight and had great recommendations for places to eat and see. Pudding was tasty! Kitchen well equipped and very clean. Bathrooms very clean as well. Would stay again and highly recommend.


Great place to stay. Staff are great, a little way out of town but free bikes make up for that. The free pudding was a lovely way to get backpackers talking to each other. Nice atmosphere, would stay again.


Really impressed with the effort the staff make to keep the place clean. The hire bikes are also very useful for a quick trip into town.


Best hostel I ever had in New Zealand. Great atmosphere, very helpful and nice staff and service. 100% recommendable! Enjoy the great chocolate pudding every night, folks!


They were so friendly! Everything was clean. Rooms were spacious. Chocolate pudding fantastic!


We stayed in a six bed dorm which was quite tight for space due to the layout of the room and the mattresses were pretty thin. Staff were friendly and helpful and the free chocolate pudding was awesome :) overall a good stay.


Best hostel I've stayed at in New Zealand. Staff really friendly. Free breakfast in the morning is better than most places and the pudding at night is a great touch. Highly recommend.


Keep going the way you currently do it! Perfect stay, thanks a lot


Absolute awesome place to stay! It's only a 5/10 minute walked to the city centre but there is so many things that make up for it!! Free hot water bottles (for winter on the cold nights) free bikes, free wifi, free pudding and free breakfast!! This place feels so homely and the shared dorm I was in wasn't those horrible metal beds, it was wooden so your not woken up by the person sleeping below or above you :) I loved the place so much I ditched YHA to come back here!


A little out of the centre - prob 20 mins walk but a nice one and no real hassle. The hostel is very well run with welcoming staff and good atmosphere. Booked 1 night originally and ended up staying 3. The guys helped with booking a couple of tours and were really informative on things to do in Nelson. Unfortunately missed out on chocolate pudding at 8pm each night as was always out but a great idea to get people talking. A brilliant place to stay and would definitely recommend.
