    Beautiful and really cute backpackers! I really enjoyed my stay here, it felt like a small family home. The rooms are really nice, the kitchen is great, and I loved the garden in the back. It is a little out of the main downtown, but it is a nice walk away from the tourists. I would definitely recommend this place!

    Was in a 3 bed room, most comfortable bed in my 4 months of travelling. I extended a couple times for that. Also great atmosphere, people were wonderful, outdoor space is nice, kitchen is well equipped. Far walk from city center but not a big deal for me. Close enough to do the Abel Tasman. Great stay.

    Center of town is a solid 25 minutes away, made it a bit of a pain to go back and forth between Nelson and the hostel. Otherwise a great place!
