Only stayed for one night - but could have stayed more! The staff were so friendly and welcoming- and I really enjoyed the energy there. People were hanging out in the main room or relaxing on the deck in hammocks! I used one of their free bikes to explore Nelson, and it was perfect for More

A beautiful hostel small and very homely with a lovely chilled atmosphere. The dorm rooms are very big and spacious. The staff were so lovely and helpful and really mingled with guests. Kitchen is big and clean and I love the fact the table to eat at everyone sits around it and mixes. So More

A bit noisy due to the wooden building. However we could sleep well so this wasn't a problem. More

Great location and communal rooms are interestingly decorated. I was able to park the car easily and walk to where I wanted to go in the town. The balcony has beautiful views. More

Great that they were able to get us in after check in hours and manager seemed nice. We didn't stay long to see the facilities etc Beds were mediocre and pillows were terrible. Shower sprayed all over the place and heater on a timer meant a chilly night. Selling featured is definitely More
