Backpacker is located in the city center and very close to the bus station (InterCity or ScenicNZ). Big grocery store is also close (7min walk). The beds were very comfy. Good to have light and socket directly next to each bed.

I was very impressed with the welcoming entry to the hostel. It was easy to see the stylish common areas (kitchen/dining/lounge) and to access the rooms upstairs. I was in a four-bed female dorm. It was airy and had great locker space under the bunks. I did have a very good sleep. The toilets and showers are all in the same space together (with doors!) and gender relaxed - certainly clean and well-attended.


Nelson is a city on the South Island of New Zealand, facing Tasman Bay. It's known for local arts and crafts stores, and art galleries. It's also a popular base for nearby caving sites, vineyards and Abel Tasman National Park. Established by English settlers in 1841, the city's history is showcased at Founders Heritage Park, a living museum with a vintage railway.
