Property Description

The hostels city/waterfront location is 13 minutes walk to the center of town, on the waterfront and close to the beach. The best of all worlds, arrive in town, call us then relax as we come to pick you up.

The recently restored historic 130 year old Customhouse is spacious with a full kitchen including ovens and all other appliances.
Surrounded by waterfront either jump off the wharf into the sea next door or walk along the waterfront to the beach for the day. Close by are cafes, fresh fish shops and Nelsons best (award winning) fish/chip shop is next door, We are at a main pick up and drop off point for many chosen activities including the Abel Tasman National Park. We also offer a booking service, indoor and outdoor relaxation areas as well as all the activities and sights the Nelson/Tasman area has to offer. We look forward to seeing you soon.

The hostel provides a variety of secure bedrooms both shared and private with common television, kitchen, dinning and lounge rooms.

Not my favorite place. It kind of felt like a frat house when you walk in - really old house with dirty furniture, stuff was EVERYWHERE. I mean the common spaces were just so disorganized, and it was not clean at all. The kitchen was seriously so disgusting and so tiny. You could barely move around, the counters were filthy, the dishes were dirty, there were flies everywhere because they didn't ask you to label food, so who knows how long things were in there. The rooms were decent enough. Horrible pillows

The Custom House is okay but nothing special. The owner is very nice. But the hostel itself is far from the city centre and not very beautiful. I've seen better hostels in my life.
