    The best hostel we have found in NZ! We stayed in a 4 bed dorm which was clean and the beds are so comfy, only slight issue is how small the rooms are but you can easily manage. Great location for Nelson and lots to do in the hostel which has brilliant clean facilities. The breakfast is a great bonus with a few options to choose from. We also enjoyed the 2 hour free bike hire. Lovely staff, would highly recommend this hostel and would definitely return!

    Pros: - huge under-bed lockers for all our stuff - labels for bed with names, nice social aspect - very comfy bed - bathrooms recently done up, very nice and clean Cons: - ONE RECYCLING BIN?! Why is that?? Meant lots of other materials ended up in landfill bin - and no food waste bin?? V wasteful - kitchen was very cramped for the number of people

    Very good value for money ! The staff is pleasant and professional. However, it is a shame not to have a wider time slot for breakfast.

    Overall great experience, but not very social. No one spoke in the common areas and there weren’t any events promoting meeting new people. Made for a very quiet stay, which was totally fine. Just didn’t anticipate no conversations during my 2 day stay.

    Nice place. Very clean and bright. Well supplied kitchen for cooking. Generally very quiet at night, so it's easy to get to sleep. Not a party atmosphere, more of a quiet conversation or read a book atmosphere, which is good if you're trying to rest or relax. Location right in the city centre with two nearby grocery stores and plenty of restaurants. Only an hour's walk to the beach. Only a 5 minute walk to the Nelson i-Site if you're looking for info on local activities.
