    Nice little hostel - The door for the bathroom bangs, and the doors for dorms, which is very noticeable when your trying to sleep. Could be easily fixed with some DIY and slow hinges on top of the doors. Other than that, it really was nice there! And the staff were very friendly and helpful!

    central location, practically organised, especially kitchen and dining area. All excellent except that the top bunk beds could have a better 'ladder' [less spacing and wider rungs for bare feet comfort].

    This was one of our favourite stops on the whole trip. Nelson is amazing and a great place to spend a couple of days. However, part of this was made by the hostel. Super comfy and clean. The staff were very friendly. The breakfast was a real treat, with cereal, toast and freshly cooked waffles (what more could you want?). Great location just a few mins from town and the staff were always ready to give advice of what to do in the town.

    Clean, spacious communal areas with a well stocked kitchen. The proximity to town meant a lot of foot traffic, and staying on a Saturday night meant a lot of rowdiness early in the morning as revelers returning from pubs and clubs in the same street. The hostel offers free breakfast with waffles - only one waffle maker and small amounts of batter.

    Nice place to stay Breakfast was only served between 8-9am with no exceptions which is odd considering lots of guests get up early to catch buses/do excursions Showers were only dribbles Other than that the kitchen facilities and hang out areas were good Staff let us keep bags stored away while we hiked the Abel Tasman for 4 days Thanks!

    Stay was clean, dorm-style. Extremely friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating staff. My only complaint really resides with the bunk mates that I had. And there’s not much the hostel can do about that. Great stay for the price!
