    Nice spot, close walk in to central Nelson. Good facilities with large sitting area. Street parking available and readily open. Smaller kitchen for size of facilty but wasnt an issue during my stay. Outside seating is nice on warm evenings.

  • 2.0.Poor

    The whole stay was uncomfortable. The walls are paper thin and the other guests were up and loud well past 2am. We could hear them speaking. Not shouting. Speaking. The walls are that bad. The shower curtain had an almost tangible stench. The soap bottle in our ensuite room had been watered down significantly. The spare blankets in the closet had the smell of death on them. I woke up in the morning smelling like the musty mattress, a smell that was difficult to get off thanks to the extraordinarily low water pressure in the bathroom, not to mention the fact that even with shower shoes I felt uncomfortable being in the shower area. I wouldn't recommend this property to anyone. It's the only time I've ever stayed somewhere and genuinely wanted to demand my money back. For the life of me I don't understand the 5 star reviews, they must be from people who usually stay in the free DOC huts.

  • 6.0.Good

    The ensuite room we had for 3 nights was spacious, clean and comfortable with a superior queen bed. Perfect sleep every night. The ensuite was the biggest i have seen in this type of accommodation. It was also sited privately from the rest of the accommodation. The property was constantly full of clients. Maybe because of this, the weak points were, the kitchen area needed to be managed better that ensured it was hygenically clean and there was a constant supply of clean tea towels. There was no TV anywhere and the onsite parking was inadequate.

    Excellent service and room conditions. The staff knew a lot about the city and had provided booklets in the rooms. Free dessert in the lounge to encourage socialising is a great idea!

    Homely stay!

    Loved the free pudding. Hostel is really clean and friendly. Lots of space to hang out and it felt quite homely. Kitchen was well equipped. Staff really friendly. Only issue was noise travels - we were kept up because we could hear people downstairs in the common area.

    stay for the choc pudding

    Convenient stroll to town, but chose as had guaranteed street parking which was safer than being in cbd itself. Dorm was warm, nice shower, and the chocolate putting was very nice on a cold evening. Bed was average, pillow the cheapest quality so had to use clothes under it to make it feel like an actual pillow. Simple fix so hopefully they replace with better quality thicker pillows for better reviews in future.
