Excellent shared spaces. It's a hostel, so don't expect 5 star, but it was clean, spacious and very well equipped. It was modern and stylish, with a commercial kitchen. Staff posted my some personal belongings I left behind back to me and were very good about it.

Love the double bed. So comfortable. Room was small but so clean and tidy. We only stay for one night, so we don't really explore the dining area or kitchen. But what I can see is they have very nice lounge, big kitchen, even internet room. We though this hostel gonna be noisy during night time, but it was so quite after 9 PM, so we can sleep peacefully. That's what we need after long drive.. The only minus is, the car parking only available for 2 spots, so we need to parking at other side of the hostel.

This place is fulled with people and staff that are like family from the minute you get in the door. This place is clean tidy with a calm feel. I had the best time stayed twice on two separate occasions and both times 5 stars

It's definitely the Backpackers we have preferred in our year in New Zealand. The common areas (kitchen, TV room, dining area, gym...) are very clean, useful and confortable. Everything is practical, for example the boxes we can use to put our food in the kitchen. There is a big space to cook in kitchen with good cooking facilities. And all the staff is welcoming : thank you Laura, Emma and all the staff for your welcoming and your tips to travel and discover Nelson and Abel Tasman.
