      The owher had to book us into another hotel, once 1 of his rooms went offline. This was much appreciated.

      My wife and I are not backpackers. But this was one of the few places in Nelson that did not seek to exploit those attending the Rugby World Cup by over inflating its prices. We had a double room with en-suite shower, Basic, but very clean and comfortable. The hotel is within easy walk of the city centre and the staff were extremely friendly, even giving us a lift to the far side of town on our first night, much appreciated. Gool value accommodation and if you are not a packpacker then you must bear in mind that it is not a standard hotel.

      Decent accomodation for the price. Bedroom was comfortable and clean. Bathroom was clean. Location was good. It's not in the cbd, but was still walkable (about 15 minutes) Close to the water where there was a nice jogging path.

      Kitchen seemed a little messy, but we as we only stayed one night, we didn't use it so I can't fully comment.

      Accomodation above a very noisy bar - not quiet until 12.30am!!! Not really acceptable for $80. Double bed was very small for 2 adults.

      free internet terminals (included in price)

      small room with unnecessary bunk beds large common kitchen with awfully smelling fridge comparably low level accommodation for price

      close to Nelson city and beach.

      Trouble with turning the shower on to get hot water as the handle was not working properly

      We stayed one night (Sat). Obviously a choice for young singles or groups. Next to a fish and chip shop which is very handy. The room we had was basic but clean with a wash basin in the room and an ensuite which was what we had requested..The double bed and bunk beds filled the room. The young people were generally polite. We were warned that it would be noisy till midnight but we were hardly disturbed..

      A car is needed to make a trip to the main part of the city and not enough parking spaces at the hostel carpark.

      This place is not a hotel, simply a backpackers hostel

      The helpful propriorter--took us in his own vehicle to cafe. Bent over backwards to help other guests as well. Free internet connection.

      Noisy road.

      Price. Clean room. Closeness to harbour front restaurants.,

      Falsely advertised on site as backpacker and hotel. A long way to walk to find a cold beer.

      We are the kind of travellers who basically check-in late to spend a night and move out as early as possible. Basically; all we need is a nice and tidy room, no loud noise, a clean bathroom and a nice cup of coffee in the morning. This accommodation provided this all! At first, we were a tiny bit 'alarmed' by the 'Backpackers'-enviroment, but in the end, this was absolutely no problem and instead added something special to our stay. This place is alive and exciting..! One special comment: the owner of the place was very, very kind and extremely helpful...! Highly recommended, especially for young people who love to party and go crazy, and for 'older' people who want to experience something a little different!

      Very friendly and helpful staff. Can walk to beach and into town. Has a car park.

      Very noisy - hostel in on highway and you can hear cars. Kitchen dirty.

      The place is genuine backpackers place with pool table, xbox, cinema room, bar and courteous owner in a historic building on the oceanfront.

      Staff were wonderful. Thankyou! Room was great and we were given bikes to use which made our time really fun.

      I guess there could be a lot of people in the kitchen at one time. But that is not really a complaint. It is to be expected.
