Usually not a fan of backpacker places, but this place made us change our minds. Nelson as a city is absolutely lovely, and the hostel i located only a five minutes walk from the centre. We stayed in a double room, which was located on the first floor. On ground floor you have a very big and well equipped kitchen, and lots of space for just hanging out.
The room was clean and pretty decorated, with a bed, table and chair. Towels were provided. On the first floor we had two toilets for ladies, and two for men. There were three showers. A laundry room was located on the ground floor with several washing machines and dryers. Free bike rentals and help with different bookings.
The hostel has a little garden were herbs are grown that you can use for cooking. The reception staff/owners are very nice. Uli, who was there when we were there was really helpful and nice. You always feel like you can come to them if there are any problems what so ever.
8 o'clock every night, they serve home made chocholate pudding with vanilla ice cream!
