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!

I really liked this hostel, the rooms were nice. We were in a twin room in the building out the back. The kitchen was well equipped, and the eating area was great sitting on the deck....

Second night out of three, so pleased with this hostel that I'm writing an early review. Colin is a wonderful host whom made us feel welcome the moment we walked in the front door. - The hostel has a holiday home near the beach feel with a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. - The area is really quiet and with comfortable...
