The hostel owner was extremely helpful. It was extremely very good value for money and right by the sea.

  Customer Review 

Nothing was too much trouble for the friendly staff members. Both staff and lodgers were really welcoming creating a outstanding atmoshere. They even picked the girls ans I up from the centre of town so we didn&'t have to walk in the heat with our heavy bags!

I would strongly recommend this hostel to anyone that is certainly staying in Nelson. The fascilities are fantastic and there is certainly plenty of room to relax in the lounge with an awesome selection of films or the dinning room with a pool table for some enjoyable with other travellers. The rooms are clean and cozy and it is situated in an awesome location right near the beach. The employees and manager are relaxed and friendly. The atmosphere in the hostel is fantastic enjoyable and feels like home. Will definitely come back again. Thanks Vicki and Shiva

I travelled around Australia and NZ for nearly 4 months and this was one of my favourite places I stayed. This hostel is a totally different expertise from any others. Booked for 3 days, stayed for 8, didn&'t want to leave. Small hostel but one huge family, everyone was really warm and friendly here and had a great time. You should visit Nelson to stay at this hostel instead of staying inside the hostel to visit Nelson. The guy who runs it is brilliant,
