I really loved it here! Nice and close to the Nelson CBD but not too close and a super nice room! The free dessert was also really appreciated. Thank you so much to the amazing staff - I will definitely be back.

Loved staying here. It's about a 15minute walk to the city but really didn't seem that far at all. The staff were beyond amazing.. My friend and I had bad luck with our travel plans so had to re-book all of our hostels twice and these guys were more than accommodating in helping us. No problem refunding on the spot. In a time of panic they were so welcoming and reassured us that they would do everything to help. Really, really recommend staying here.. and the beds are super comfy!

Loved this hostel. Pudding is awesome! Very quiet and sweet little garden hostel, cool vibes and free wifi but with an effort to create a no-device community at night, which I truly appreciate. staff were extremely accommodating, held my luggage for free while I did Abel Tasman Track. Had an extra kitchen off of our room. Only complaint is not enough showers!

A lovely, comfortable space to use as a base for surrounding activities and to meet other travelers. The setup is perfect for socializing and relaxing. And the pudding makes it even better!

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!

We loved this hostel, our room was nice and we met some great people! The free chocolate pudding was amazing! It was a nice clean well equipped hostel the staff were friendly and really helpful. It is slightly out of the town but easily walk able. The hostel was easy to find and it's off street parking was safe and secure. We'd definitely stay here again.

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.
