10/10 Exceptional

I liked the clranliness and not being overwhelmed by people...due to covid i guess. I didnt like music playing in hallways...npt everyone has the same tastes Giy on front frsk made me feel teally welcome. Bread in kitchen was good too.

8/10 Very good

Quite clean and tidy, nice to see free bread for breakfast in the kitchen. Room was facing the road and quite noisy (not sure why, it was as if the buildings were amplifying the noises made by every car or person that walked past) so didn't sleep well.

Hostel staff were nice and (mostly) helpful. Internet is limited to 1 Gig per 24 hrs unless you pay them for unlimited (i want to say 2 NZD). You can’t see how much internet you have left (the interface it shows you when you log on is inaccurate) but it will stop if you use it all. The room I was in didn’t have lockers. Instead we were supposed to use the set in the hallway which felt less secure to me. Also, the bathrooms near my room almost inevitably had water on the floor (I think one of the fixtures was leaking). Overall still a pleasant stay.

Good hostel
Staff is very friendly. Kitchens are huge, wished there would be a few more frying pans. Our room was basic, nothing special (double room with no bathroom) and clean.We had a good night there. Good location In Nelson, Intercity just around the corner.

Affordable and good stay
Location was great! So close to restaurants, grocery stores and shops. Room smelled like feet. I stayed in a 4 bed dorm. The common area was huge and there were 2 kitchens which made socializing very fun
