"Friendly staff, nice herb garden, spacious kitchen with free brekkie. It is also cool that they encourage "device free" hour in the evening. :)"

About Tasman Bay Backpackers

Our hostel is family run, purpose built, spacious, very clean yet homely. FREE year round delicious homemade and hot chocolate pudding & ice cream plus an all you can eat FREE winter Breakfast (May to October)r). FREE UNLIMITED WiFi .

The fire is roaring, the atmospheres relaxed, the hostel's warm, spacious yet homely. Just like your favorite café - great music, friendly, genuine people. Everyone says it has a nice feel to it.

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 travelers) and we try to ensure that everyone feels welcome and enjoys their stay (of course).

Outside you'll find a well used outside hammock, swing chair and edible garden which includes herbs, grapes, kiwifruit, feijoas, lemons.

Our hostel provides a great place to stay 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 luggage storage.

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.
