I checked out of INNBetween early this morning and was looking forward to writing a great review however, all my positive opinions of this place were destroyed when I received a phone call around 10am asking me if I had any idea where the pillow from one of the spare beds in my room had gone! I explained that the...

Owners and staff are the best: smiling and always super nice. They really care about their hostel and put their hearts in what they do, and this says it all. The hostel is tidy and clean, wifi always working, nice garden and living areas. Great location. Never had a single thing to complain about, best hostel in Nelson!

New name and great food. I had the halomi with vegetables...... excellent. My wife loved her chicken wrapped in bacon with beautiful vegetables. Good wine and craft beer selection. We will definitely be visiting again soon.

During my stay in New Zealand, I didn't take the time to plan any sort of lodging ahead of time because the whole point was to stay as spur of the moment as possible. So with that being said, I rocked up to Nelson with no lodging reservations of any kind, and ended up stumbling upon the InnBetween. And let...

Really good environment. Made lots of friends. Places like this adds more comfort to nelson's beauty. Good food in the bar downstairs. Great beer deal! In one word 'Perfect '.Loved the hammocks at the courtyard. The world map on the kitchen wall was awesome. Can see how many people actually travelled with enthusiasm.Will be back definitely!

Very clean hostel, bathrooms and rooms, and the kitchen is amazing - fresh bread every day, a lot of space to cook, lots of dishes. Great garden aswell. The wifi is...

I have stayed at this hostel before and had to come back, and I stayed long term this time! I love this hostel, I love all the staff, and how they made me feel like I was part of the family. Everything was clean (thanks to the cleaners who do a big job making sure that it stays clean after...

We would often go for an ensuite room, but since it was a public holiday and pretty busy in Nelson, we got a family room (with shared toilets) instead as that was the only room left available for that day. The family room we stayed in was very clean - the beds are comfy, sheets are clean, the room looked...

After traveling around New Zealand for 11 months, the INNBetween has been my favorite yet. First, they have the best wifi in all of New Zealand, fast/strong connection. Showers are super clean, good temperature/pressure, and hooks/shelves. Staff were very friendly. The mattress and pillows are top notch. To complete the amazing stay I had, right downstairs was the Basement bar/cafe...
