Wonderful warm and quiet hostel, large clean rooms, comfy wooden beds, super clean bathrooms and and common areas. Great free chocolate pudding and free bikes. Walk to town 10-15 minutes, but that is no problem.

Lovely atmosphere, cosy and clean! Great place for meeting people and play games or guitar. Chocolate pudding is awesome but make sure to be there really at 8. Would have appreciated lockers in the rooms though.

Loved the pudding and ice cream social hour where the hostel asked guests to turn off their electronics and talk/ meet new people! Also loved that they played all kiwi music. Had a good vibe and the decor was very nice.

This hostel is excellent. We loved the helpful friendly staff, the relaxed and cheerful atmosphere and the thoughtful touches such as pictures on the walls and warm, bright paintwork, that make the place so welcoming. The kitchen is in very good condition and most of the equipment is good (time to toss out those scratched frypans guys). Everyone loves the chocolate pudding and there's always a crowd waiting for it. We intended to stay three nights and ended up staying a week.

Exceptional service, cleanliness and friendliness. Very very well organised facilities.

Deservedly well rated and very popular. One of the best places We stayed at in 5 weeks in NZ. Free Wi-Fi and chocolate pudding is a winning combination and the double room with private toilet was comfortable too. Only tiny negative is that the laundry facilities are limited to cold wash only, which is rubbish for getting clothes properly clean.

Amazing. Ticked all the boxes and then some. And then some free chocolate pudding.

The hostel is located 10 mins walk from the information center and the facilities (kitchen and toilets) are big and clean. Free bicycles and internet. Every evening a delicious chocolate pudding with ice cream is served around 8 pm. I was in a mixed 4 beds room, clean and big with places to store the suitcases and hang clothes. I would recommend it.

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.
