Property Description

Run for over two decades, The Palace Backpackers is this historical colonial villa maybe a stone’s throw from downtown Nelson, but you’d never believe it when you stay here. Set in an enchanting garden with plum and lemon trees and flowers scenting the air, The Palace could be a million miles from anywhere.

Check in as a traveller, and leave as a friend. Help yourself to our tea and real coffee and tuck into a free breakfast and bakery. Sit on the deck and gaze at the sea or Centre of New Zealand whilst strumming one of our guitars or reading a book from our international book exchange. Play a tune on the piano in the music room. Lie back and relax in one of our hammocks. Access our free high speed unlimited WiFi, Enjoy hot pressured showers in our delightful colourful bathrooms. Enjoy socialising at the BBQ area with new friends. Make friends with one of our hostel cats. Enjoy a good night’s sleep in one of our spacious dorms or doubles (no bunks!).

The Palace Backpackers features free unlimited WiFi, free bicycle hire (limited), free breakfast and bakery, a laundry, free luggage storage, free parking (limited), large well equipped kitchens with bread, tea, bakery and real coffee with a machine.
Reception opening times: 6.30am - 9pm

Our staff is warm and friendly. Feel free to ask for any assistance that you need :-) We'd love you to come and experience life at The Palace.

BED BUGS! This property is dirty, run down and there was a bed bug infestation while we stayed there. Several guests talked about the bed bugs but staff didn’t do anything until a day later. Kitchen is disgusting. Beds uncomfortable and decor tired. Good location but that’s about it unfortunately…
