          Such a lovely, clean hostel, and friendly, helpful staff. only a short walk from the centre of Nelson, and from where most coaches drop off/pick up from. The cake and ice cream was a lovely surprise too! I would have loved to stay longer!

          Hi, there is only a double room available for the dates I'm looking 5/4 - 10/4 for $70/night. I've read that you sometimes can reduce the rate for one person, is that so? Also, is the bathroom for that room shared with another room or is it with many of the occupants? Cheers Suzann
