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...

Nice and clean hostel, though the rooms aren't cleaned during the day (we stayed in a private room). The common areas are quite large and comfortable, and the kitchen is well-equipped. Location is great too, right by Nelson Cathedral.

I stayed here for six nights whilst using Nelson as a base to explore the region - using both four and six-bed dorms on different nights. I personally found all members of staff to be good natured and helpful, unlike was seemingly the case for some previous guests, and received a warm welcome. Both dorms that I spent time in...

I had 2 adults and 2 children in my party and we stayed in this accommodation for 5 days. I wanted to let my children experienced the backpackers way of travelling, I booked the 4 beds dorm (2 sets of bunks in a room) with shared toilets and bathrooms. It was their first time staying in a backpackers accommodation, they...

We were returning guests and live in the region and noticed the place had gone 'downhill' since we stayed just less than a year before. Upon checkout we were told we had to pay a late fee as we were 1/2 an hour late. Ridiculous! You also have to pay if you want to park in the car park!!! There...

I stayed here with my college age daughter. We stayed in a private bunk room over looking Church Hill. It was a tiny room but clean and comfy bed. The staff were all very nice and accommodating. Ann is a sweetheart and gave us great tips of places to eat and see. I had to email with her a few...

We stayed in the private room (310) for $150 per night and had to suffer drunken swearing and banging in the next door room (309) through paper thin walls until 4am - Not very pleasant! Also the bathroom and shower contain not one shelf so good luck balancing your soap!!!! Shame because the staff were pleasant and overall the place...
