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).


Had a great stay here, would recommend!


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.


Nice hostel, free chocolate pudding/ice cream every night. Free wifi.


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.


The free chocolate pudding everyday is a great idea, the staff is teally helpfull and friendly. Its clean and have a good atmosphere, definitely a good place to stay.
