The hostel is situated at the corner of Nile and Tasman Streets. 2 blocks from Trafalgar St towards the Maitai Valley

From the airport one exits onto Quarantine Road.
150 meters take the 1st exit onto Whakatu Drive.
400 meters via the 2nd exit continue on Whakatu Drive
700 meters take the 2nd exit onto Waimea Road
4.4 km turn right onto Selwyn Place
500 meters turn right onto Collingwood St
150 meters take 1st exit onto Nile St
350 meters and we are on the left.

A taxi will cost between $20-$25 to reach us.
Unfortunately Nelson doesn't have a bus service that runs to the airport, however there is a service called 'Super Shuttle' that exists. It is cheaper than a taxi!!!
The intercity bus terminal is a 10 minute walk and is located on Bridge St.
To reach us from there one need only walk 3 blocks down Bridge St, turn right onto Tasman St and we are on the corner of Tasman and Nile another 3 blocks South.
Again with prior arrangement we do provide complementary pick ups and drop offs to the bus terminal.
