Fantastic hostel, great free chocolate pudding, great atmosphere, nice, clean rooms.
Tasman Bay was a really nice cosy, homely backpackers with a comfortable vibe. Easy to settle in and feel at home. Lovely common area with lots of space to chill. And a friendly cat!
Great hostel, comfortable beds and nice atmosphere. The free Wi-Fi is excellent and even works in your room in case you want to Skype where you won't be around as many people. Free chocolate pudding and a no Wi-Fi (loosely enforced) during that time rule was great, everyone put down their devices and talked of their travels.
This is a great hostel. It has a really homely and comfortable vibe. Good kitchen and bathroom facilities. Amazing hot chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream every evening is amazing!! Good location as well to explore the surrounding area.
Amazing little hostel. Staff were so helpful! Shame I only got to stay one night! Lovely free breakfast and chocolate pudding. Great friendly integrating atmosphere!
Great hostel with a very homely feel... Chocolate pudding is the best!!
The men at the front desk were incredibly helpful and flexible. They have a really good vision and the overall atmosphere is better than at most hostels. All kiwi music! But while I was there, the place was completely taken over by loud, obnoxious, insular woofers. I was there three nights and none of them even made eye contact with me. What is worse is that they were so loud that I couldn't talk to other travellers. The managers should put better limits on them and break them up somehow.
The free breakfast and the pudding were both amazing, the staff were super friendly and helpful, and the wifi was really fast.
The staff was so helpful getting settled! Everyone was so welcoming and fun to be around...such a great atmosphere!
Loved my stay at Tasman Bay. Really nice free extras, such as wifi and the brilliant chocolate pudding every night, made my stay really enjoyable. As a female travelling alone I found the hostel really welcoming with a great atmosphere.
Friendly, helpful staff. A really nice setting and atmosphere.
One of the best hostels I've stayed in. Free pudding & ice cream every night is a very nice treat.
Absolutely loved this hostel! Paid for a day and ended up staying 5! Staff were great. It's a place were people seem to get stuck. And of course the pudding was great!
Loved it. Very home-y, social, nice, and charming. The location is okay, and might be one of the best, relatively speaking. It's a small community and not many hostels so it may be one of the better locations since I did not see any that were more central.
This is a fantastic hostel - the owner was so helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The free chocolate pudding is most welcome in the winter months. The perfect place to return to after the Abel Tasman coastal trek. I'd thoroughly recommend this hostel.
Good choc pudding and breakfast. Helpful staff
Nice and clean Hostel. Awesome atmosphere with the wood fire oven in the common area. Managment friendly and always available. Big breakfast everymorning. Kitchen cleaning twice a day, which is rear in a hostel. Internet not always fast and most of the time cant get the signal from my room, but it's ok as long as there are always people around for a chat.
Probably our favourite we've stayed in, in NZ. Atmosphere was great, rooms were lovely and cosy. Free pudding was mouth watering and a lovely addition! Would definitely recommend to any staying in Nelson.
