Every night of the year we offer a FREE Homemade hot chocolate pudding and ice cream and in the winter months we offer a FREE all you can eat continental breakfast plus FREE wireless internet. Our hostel is family run, purpose built, spacious, very clean yet homely. Everyone says it has a nice feel to it. In winter we light the log fire every night and all the rooms have heaters.
We also supply extra duvets and hot water bottles for those that feel the cold (not that you should need it our hostel is always kept very warm).
The hostel is located just five mins walk from the main street (far enough away to avoid inner city noise but close enough that it is an easy walk to shops, cafes etc). It is a hostel which attracts a wide variety of nationalities and ages (not usually group travellers) and we try to ensure that everyone feels welcome and enjoys their stay (of course).
Outside you'll find a well used outside hammock, and edible garden which includes herbs, grapes, kiwifruit, feijoas, lemons, ….
Our hostel provides a great place to base yourself whilst exploring the Nelson Tasman region. Everyone that works here has a lot of local knowledge and is happy to share it and book anything for you. All buses and most activity operators will pick up and/or drop off right at our front door. We can ticket buses, water taxis, kayak trips and all activities. We hire out good quality camping gear and offer advice and do bookings for any of the three National Parks in our region.
Also available are bikes for you to use (no charge) to explore the area. Off-street parking and free lugguage storage. FREE local calls/no phone card surcharge on our hostel phone.
All rooms are of a good size. We have a large selection of doubles, twins, small dorms and two six share dorms. During winter we also offer double rooms at a single occupancy rate.
We also run a similar hostel in Picton called Sequoia Lodge Backpackers.
