I came to Nelson with no plan in mind and when I stayed at Prince Albert I didn't want to leave. Mike and Nanny (the owners) are very friendly. The place is well organize and take advantage of the weather of beautiful Nelson. The bar next door offer good beer and food at a reasonable price!
I strongly recommend!

Stayed here for 2 nights in a double room!

Pros: friendly girl on check in, free wifi, free breakfast (toast, waffles and cereal), close enough to town.

Cons: the first night was pretty noisy (second night ok), the kitchen is tiny (in their defense they do offer $10 meal + dessert each night).

Mike (the owner) at the Prince Albert backpackers goes the extra mile to keep his guests happy - nothing is too much trouble. Immaculately clean, comfortable communal areas, well organised, and a great friendly atmosphere to meet fellow travellers. A great pint of beer at good prices and the two course $10 evening meals are awesome value. Simply a fantastic place to stay - I fully and highly recommend The Prince Albert Backpackers.

Stayed ah the Prince Albert Backpackers for two nights in a 6 bed dorm room. It was really clean and easy to get to from the town. Staff were amazing especially Erin who checked me in and told me where I needed to go. The free internet is a massive bonus! I had the $10 meal for dinner which was really nice. Thank you for my stay and time in Nelson!

Many thanks to Mike and Nani for a wonderful stay at Prince Albert Backpackers and Bar.
The outdoor areas were amazing, perfectly set up to socialize or relax on your own, even having four hammocks to laze in.
Lovely bar and restaurant seating, indoor and out, and excellent food at even better prices.
All in all it was incredibly comfortable, and well situated to explore the rest of Nelson. Very highly recommended to all.
Many thanks again.
