    What’s Good About Nelson?



    One of the best hostels we stayed in New Zealand!! 🙂 Familiar atmosphere, great and very friendly staff and so close to an amazing beach! We really enjoyed the time we stayed at the Beach Hostel and wished, we could stayed even longer.

    One of the most affordable hostels in the Nelson neighbourhood! Clean, cosy, and real friendly! Unlimited wifi is always a plus, and there are many washing, shower and toilet facilities! All in healthy shape! Planned to stay here 1 night, it quickly became 2!

    Located in a great part of town and short walk to the beach. I honestly regretted leaving, I could have easily stayed longer. The owner and staff were very friendly and it was quiet at night.
