here’s what our guests thought…


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.

The owners, very welcoming. Nothing too much trouble. Great deck in the sunshine. Relaxing. Tea and coffee available at all times. Excellent kitchen. Cozy lounge. Can't say anything bad about the place. 5 mins from beach. Free lift to coach/ airport.

The hostel is incredibly cozy and welcoming, you feel right at home from the beginning. The lounge area and sun deck are a great place to relax, the kitchen is clean and possibly the best stocked kitchen I found and the beach is 5-10 mins walk away. The hostel owners were incredibly accommodating. I came planning to stay for a few nights and stayed for almost 3 weeks. Highly recommended!!!!

It was a lovely place to stay in a very good location. I expected it to be on the noisy side but was very quiet and very convenient to the beach and restaurants..

Very nice Hostel. Very clean and with all the amenities you`d need. 5 min bike ride from city centre. 30 secs from the beach. 🙂

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.

Turned out to be a really enjoyable stay with such clean facilities from bedrooms to bath and kitchen. Fault for everything there cannot be found. We simply loved this place and wished we could have more time here. Keep up the great work there!

This hostel was fantastic as it was very homely, we had been traveling for a bit so to be able to be somewhere that you can relax and take it easy for a day or two is wonderful!

Very pleased with this hostel! I would stay here again and recommend it to others!
Helen, USA

Possibly one of the most relaxed, most welcoming and comfortable places I have ever stayed. Beats a sterile, boring motel room any day. So reasonably priced, clean and homely.
Jason, New Zealand

The staff are very nice and helpful. They have bikes you can take and the beach is just a couple of minutes by foot. Its a very cosy and clean Hostel. Thank you Guys.

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!
