    Came to paradiso originally for one night and stayed 4! The owner and manager Ronda is incredible. She takes such good care of the hostel and is so friendly and warm to anyone staying. There was a great atmosphere everyone talking to each other but come 10:30pm music off & everyone is to go town; so a great balance for those wanting a good sleep. Huge kitchen great pool and spa area. The only hostel id stay at in Nelson. Would recommend

    Great hostel, cool loft to chill in, spa, pool, sauna, the whole deal! Ping pong table, nice backyard with lots of chairs, massive lockers under the beds, big clothesline to dry your clothes. Nice atmosphere. Can be chaotic when full of people but it's not a big deal. They provide some breakfast too! My only issue is that there isn't enough space in the fridges.

    Amazing place. How many hostels have a swimming pool and spa! Overall great stay but security was almost zero. The shared rooms weren’t locked and i saw other guests going through windows to access the lounge and rooms

    overall a very nice hostel and we enjoyed our stay here. Our only complaint is that the lady who seems to be in charge is quite rude, seems like she does not enjoy working in hospitality.

    Generally a clean hostel, minimal space for lounge areas. Great kitchen. Guests did not have much care for consideration of others regarding what time playing music either early morning or late at night - however it was a weekend. Security quite poor as the front door was open most of the time. Overall welcoming & good if you want to party.

    I arrived early around 6 pm and I was waiting more than 45 minutes to check in, the reception was closed and nobody answered the reference phone, then I realized that they charged me the rate without discounting the reservation payment made, but I honestly preferred not to return , wait and waste more time at the reception, I will not use this hostel in Nelson again, there are better options around the city...
