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.
Such a nice hostel - lovely rooms, warm communal area with fire, delicious free chocolate pudding and such a good free breakfast too. Wish we had longer at this hostel, would 100% recommend
This hostel location wasn't to bad, it was walking distance from all the shops so that was nice. One thing I loved, were the chocolate pudding, SO GOOD!! The atmosphere was descent, not to hard to make friends which was good. They also offered breakfast. It was good value for money overall in my opinion.
Best hostel ever! I definitely recommend this hostel to everybody. The beds are very comfy and the rooms are clean. The atmosphere is cozy and friendly. Very easy to meet people. Also every night they have a delicious chocolate pudding with ice cream for everybody.
one of the best hostels i've seen so far, everything clean, great rooms, nice staff

Loved the man who works the front desk- very happy and friendly. Clean hostel with good beds and shared facilities. Easy to meet new people and socialize. Pudding at night is the icing on the cake.
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.
We really enjoyed staying in this home-feel like hostel. The kitchen, rooms and bathrooms are really clean. We would have liked to stay longer then the one night.
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.
Really good hostel with down to earth staff. One of the best in Nelson (and I have tried a few).
