      The best hostel in the South Island! Staff was very helpful and nice. I slept in a six bed dorm and it was the most comfortable this far: enough space and plugs, clean, the bed was really good and it wasn't too hot or cold. Showers and toilets were also clean. Kitchen was ok, maybe a bit little. Free bikes is a big plus. AMAZING free chocolate pudding and ice cream every evening is already enough good reason to stay. I was surprised about location, I thought the hostel is far away but it was actually quite close to city centre and i-site, just a couple of minutes easy walk!

      Food recycling bin was outside that I found slightly weird. At the other hand, it might cause a bad smell in kitchen.

      Love the free breakfast and friendly environment. And also miss the dessert every night. Private room is very spacious and quiet. Location is good, close to the city center.

      We were very pleaseantly surprised by our private room with ensuite wet room, tremendous value for money and very comfortable. The centre's kitchen was well provisioned, very clean and eco friendly. We got a warm welcome from the staff, who couldn't have been more helpful or friendly....and the free chocolate pudding with ice cream each evening was just the icing on the cake, excuse the pun!!

      The noise of other guests slamming doors and walking on the floor above mine, with shoes on, the construction of this property is not at all sound proofed for such.

      Excellent facilities, friendly and helpful staff, free chocolate pudding, free cycle hire. Good proximity to central Nelson, excellent value for money, courtesy free collection from the bus station.

      Our room happened to be next to the stairs, opposite the toilets and above the lounge so noise was ineviitable even though nobody was being particularly loud.

      Relaxed backpackers, good friendly staff, nice kitchen facilities, and lovely added extras in the form of a dessert each night and breakfast included in the price. One of the nicer backpackers I have stayed at and I've stayed at many

      Good value for money

      We really enjoyed the hospitality and the facilities available. However, it was very noisy and the younger backpackers were running up and down the corridor playing loud music and they made a lot of noise the whole night. We could not sleep. A suggestion would be to enforce a curfew and a respect for other guests.

      The living room is very cosy. The bathrooms are clean.

      Our room was poorly soundproof.
