The staff were friendly, the other guests didn't speak. My room was clean and tidy, the kitchen smelt of grease but was well equipped even had a dish washer! The walls are very thin so you can hear everything going on! I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.. smugglers bar over the road and down a bit was fab!

We stayed here on and off in between going other places. We had a good spacious room, for us as a couple, but all rooms aren't the same. We were glad not to be under the balcony as it could be noisy. There was a problem with booking, so good idea to confirm before you arrive. The staff worked hard...

It was quiet and nice! Everything was provided! My first hostel in NZ and it set the bar quite high, which is good for the hostel, though. I'd stay there again, it was a good and satisfying stay! Everything was provided and the owner was very friendly!

Good place to stay, small room but good for a couple of nights. Good kitchen and living room facilities. Nice 5 minute walk to the beach or 50 walk along the beach front into central Nelson. Good fast free wifi.

This is a late review as I only just joined trip-advisor but I spent the holidays at the Beach Hostel and just had to give Colin (the owner) and the whole place a great review! I could not have picked a better place to spend Christmas and New Year's! The hostel is only a few minutes from gorgeous Tahuna beach...

Booked to stay here for a night and when told up were told they were full. Even though had a booking confirmation. Not helped out as to where to look next and was late enough in he day to be looking for somewhere else. Very disappointed and upset.

Staying here was an absolute pleasure. Clean and comfortable beds. Immaculately clean kitchen. Plenty of space with a very chilled out and relaxed atmosphere. Really enjoyed have a BBQ to cook our meals on the front deck. Very friendly staff. Would recommend!

loved this place! So much we added extra nights! First few nights were in a private double, which was great, they a couple in the dorms which were also good. Everything is clean, good location, we had a car though so not sure how great it would be on foot... Right by the beach though!!!! Colin was just great, think...
