    This is an excellent hostel. When I was there it was very quiet and the only thing I would change is to create opportunities for guests to interact.

    One of my favorite hostels in New Zealand, and I've stayed in a lot. However, my stay here was during winter and I found it very cold in the room and building itself. Heaters in the rooms shut off after 30 minutes, so it gets very cold overnight. Other than the cold, I had a good stay.

    Good hostel and would stay again. Plenty of bathrooms/showers for each floor. Beds were comfortable and the smaller rooms had regular beds vs. bunk beds. Small lockers in each room. Two large kitchens that were kept pretty clean. They provide fresh bread every day from a nearby bakery. You only get 2GB of free wifi, per device, but that was fine for my two night stay. Good location, just a few minute walk to the main bus station. It's quite a large hostel so most travelers stick to themselves.

    This was a good option! The kitchen area and hangout area were huge and really nice. The location was nice and our beds were comfy. The staff was okay and the towels were a bit expensive to rent and you couldn't switch when it got dirty. Otherwise, it was a great option for a short stay in Nelson.
