this is a typical YHA hotel. We had our own private room which was clean, comfortable, and spartan (again typical for YHA). Close to restaurants, stores, etc. Enjoyed all the lively guests.

Fair2.0 / 5
Very disappointing
One of the most expensive backpackers we stayed at (we're getting two nights in Nelson for the price of one here) and the most disappointing. The lines are cleaned with something quite smelly - perhaps an insecticide. It had my allergies and asthma going in full force until I mitigated it a little by putting our own towels as a layer over pillows and between the sheets and my face. It was also quite loud, and the walls are very thin. Finally I gave up on sleep at 6am, and went to take a shower at 6am. I could not get any hot water. I don't know if they turn it off at night, because my husband did manage to get a warm shower a few hours later. The location was good, with an easy walk out to restaurants. They also rented bikes, and while we didn't try them out, I thought this would have been nice if we had stayed longer.

a wonderful stay!
I had a wonderful stay. The only small criticism, is that maybe the room could have been aired a little during the day.
