Great facilities - table tennis, volleyball, sauna, jacuzzi, pool. Staff were friendly and helpful. 4 bed en-suite room was adequate and had the basics you want. The free noodles on check-in, free soup at 6pm and free breakfast really helped to keep costs down! The only downside would be that the kitchen(s) feel very small, a little outdated, and cramped,...

So I stayed here for 3 nights whilst in Nelson and this place has it all! It's slightly further away from the CBD but takes maybe 10 minutes walk to get there which is nothing. They have a Bus as the lounge, two good kitchens, a swimming pool, a spa pool and more! The facilities are great here, everything is...

Stayed here a few nights with my boyfriend. Staff were lovely, free breakfast and soup in the evening. The place itself is gorgeous, it was like going to a hotel, pool, loungers, spa, sauna, hot tub, volleyball, ping pong, darts, pool, free wifi. We spent so much time lounging by the pool. The rooms were nice and cleaned daily, definitely...

I stayed here only one day but I would rate this backpacker hostel maximum for their warm and cordial behavior, their amenities and overall quality. It has a pool, spa, volley ball court and also camping facilities. They provide welcome noodles packet, afternoon homemade soup and breakfast, and all complementary. Rooms are quite good with a flavor of resort. City...

Such a great hostel. Nice facilities with a Pool, whirl Pool and a Sauna. The kitchen is very big and Most of the time a open and laughful crowd is around. By this reason the dorms can be noisy and you should go for a private ensuite if you want it quite. The Room is simple but clean and the...

My friend and I, backpackers, stayed in a room for ourselves for 30$, and in return we got a pool (!), a huge kitchen (though not the cleanest), free wifi and parking, and a fantastic young atmosphere.

It looks like a nice hostel with loads of facilities. I had the back luck to sleep in a room with all German friends who loved to party. So they occupied the swimming area. I did not feel welcome at all. My mattress was to small for my bed and the 'lockers' underneath where broken. It was just a small...

A bit untidy but nice. Swimming pool, spa, volleyball etc. Lots of 18 year old Germans, lots of French and Latinos mainly. If you stay try to avoid Golden Bay room as no WiFi coverage there, otherwise bunks and dorms are great for making friends.
