Property Description

Our Travellers hostel is family-run, purpose-built, spacious, clean and homely. During these Covid times we welcome travellers to come stay with us for longer periods of time. There is lots of work in the Nelson Tasman Region and we can give you information re different work and connect you with employers. If you are working remotely or a student then we have fast WIFI and areas that are good to study/work in.

All year round we have free, delicious, homemade hot chocolate pudding and ice cream. From May to October there is a FREE all-you-can-eat winter breakfast.

We have a large selection of doubles, twins, small dorms and six share dorms. In the winter we also offer double rooms at a single occupancy rate.

Outside you'll find a well-used hammock, swing chair and an edible garden which includes herbs, grapes, kiwi fruit, feijoas, lemons and more.

We also have free bike rental, off-street parking and free luggage storage.

Just like your favourite caf�, we have great music (often because of guests who use the guitars & ukelele) and friendly, genuine people. Everyone says it has a nice feel to it. We're just five minutes' walk from the main street - far enough away to avoid city noise but close enough that it's an easy walk to shops, cafes, etc. We attract a wide variety of nationalities and ages and we try to ensure that everyone feels welcome and enjoys their stay.

Due to Covid our office hours have been reduced. We are open 8.30am - 12.30pm and 3.30pm - 8pm. If you arrive during the day when the office is closed please make yourself 'at home' until we get back.
Note - if you arrive later than 8pm please contact us to organise a late check-in (our office closes at 8pm).†View House Rules

    In the room there’s a little info booklet that says “it’s the little things that make us different” I didn’t actually read the booklet haha, but it did feel like a lovely family run business with lots of nice touches around that gave it a friendly welcoming feel. It’s a busy place, so not always the cleanest, but the staff that I interacted with seemed to genuinely care and made me feel welcome.

    Cool hostel. Great location with lovely staff, really felt like a home with the couches next to the fireplace. Enjoyed the chocolate pudding too. The was walls are very thin though, so maybe take some earplugs if you're a light sleeper.

    Great little hostel, stayed just after Xmas. Vibes were very chill and so were the people. Facilities were as described and as pictured. Kitchen and living areas were on the smaller side for the potential maximum capacity of the hostel.
