About The Prince Albert Backpackers
FREE Unlimited Wi-Fi 24hrs a day!
FREE I-site and bus station pickups & drop offs.
FREE Breakfast from 8am - 9am (Waffles, Maple Syrup, Hot Chocolate, Orange Juice and more! Yum!)
We have a mixture of doubles, twins and four- or six-bed dorm rooms. ALL ROOMS HAVE A BATHROOM & BRAND NEW INNER SPRUNG MATTRESSES! We also have a large car park in which we welcome Freedom Campers to use.
Outside of the room you can relax in one of our hammocks in the sunny courtyard, watch a movie in the TV lounge, compete against other travelers in our backpackers games room (table tennis, darts or Foosball) or enjoy a cold beer with some our locals in the 'best beer garden in Nelson'.
On that note, how can we forget to mention that our Backpackers comes with its very own English-style pub where you can meet the locals, and to encourage interaction we have backpacker prices, just show your room card at the bar. Can't argue with that now can we!
Reception hours: 8am to 9pm, so if you are arriving outside this hours, please contact us and we will rescue you at the front door!
See you soon.
Our largest rooms still only have 6 people per room and as all our rooms have en suites you will never be waiting to long for that shower.
All the rooms are accessed via electronic key cards to ensure security.
The hostel is only a 8 minute stroll from the city center, 1 minute walk to the Matai River and Reserves, 20 minute walk to 'the center of New Zealand viewing platform' and a 10 minute stroll along the river bank to Trafalgar Park.
