Amazing place! I stayed only 2 nights, but it was outstanding if I had more time I'd surely here more. If you are in Nelson look for this place. The atmosphere is so cozy, and friendly and it would be a waste not to experience it! The free soup for dinner it's really delicious and warms you up during those... More

We stayed 2 nights in this accomodation in a 4 bedroom. The room was clean with a little bathroom. We were glad to have a free breakfast with toasts, cereals & milk and hot drinks !  Free wifi too but it didn't work well ...  There is also a swimming pool and a spa :)  It's a good place to...

I really liked staying here. Pool, Spa, friendly staff, good facilities. I slept in a 4-bed Suite which was very comfortable. There are two kitchens, it is all tidy. You walk 10 minutes to the centre of Nelson.

This is a very busy backpackers catering mainly for the younger generation. They do also have motels. It was clean and tidy and the rooms were adequate with comfortable beds. There is a swimming pool / Spa / and a dry sauna all included. There is also a free breakfast available. Recommend

Only stayed there one night so I may have caught it on a bad one. Bummer because it could be a great place. Lots of partying. Very noisy on the weekend. Lots of drunken young Kiwi guys. Front desk staff said that the overnight guard would enforce quiet hours but things were still really noisy at 3am. Lots of yelling... More

For the last week I stayed at the Paradiso Backpacker's and then the Paradiso Motels and had a wonderful time. I was very impressed with the way the Paradiso is run. The owner's, Robin and Helen have a young baby but you would never guess. This is the height of their busy season and they attended to every request or... More

We found ourselves in need of a bed for the night, late on a busy summer's evening in Nelson. Everywhere we checked was fully booked but the staff at Paradiso found us somewhere to stay - it was called a "love shack", which seemed appropriate as it was our honeymoon! It was in fact a shed with two single beds... More
