Very clean and comfortable rooms with great social areas.
We were let down by the staff. The newest staff member made us feel most welcome. The others, not so much and it had a big impact on our stay.
The hostel is simply beautiful and cozy. Probably the most beautiful hostel that I've ever stayed. I love the furniture and decoration inside as well. The room is spacious and very clean.
Internet was weak inside the room
Everything was clean and modern, from the floors to the bunk beds, the kitchen and even the bathrooms. They have a great hang out area with a fire place, very warm and cosy. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Its right next to all the shops. I was very pleased and will be booking this hostel if I ever stay in Nelson again.
Friendly atmosphere and good camaraderie. Kitchen excellent facility.
Wi Fi was unstable but got fixed later.
My best friend and I met up here for a quick visit. The private room was quiet, comfortable and warm. There were even extra pillows! The sink was a nice bonus. As was the desk and enough space to not be tripping over each other.
There was only one toilet on the floor. There were 2 showers, 1 of which was in the same room as the only toilet. We didn't have a problem, but it would have been near disasterous if I had to run up and down flights of stairs in my nighty looking for another loo for my temperamental bladder.
One of the best HI hostels I've stayed in so far (and I've been to a lot)! Super friendly staff, facilities all very clean and modern, all essentials in the kitchen - including a proper oven.
Location was excellent. Staff were mostly helpful.
Understood it's a hostel, but room with a private bath would be a plus, as would more off-street parking.
