About The Fountain Backpackers

Otto´s is the only backpackers in the Nelson region which is not affiliated with the commercial backpacking industry (BBH, YHA). "We believe that the backpacking is a great way for people to understand and bring Karma into their lives". Otto´s retains the essence of backpacking, a place where people can meet, share and socialize with other backpackers from around the world.

Accommodation Information

Otto's Dorm Rooms: All dorm bedrooms are newly refurbished and are all fully en-suite. They have de-lux single bed and only one bunk bed across seven rooms.
Otto's Private & Twin Rooms: All double and twin rooms are all also fully ensuite and all have large double mattresses and nice outward looking views.

Location Information

We're close to everything...

Otto´s is located in central Nelson, 3mins walk to the nearest supermarket, 20 seconds walk to the nearest bus stop and 5mins walk to Trafalgar Street (City center). Our location is second to none as Otto´s is surrounded by the largest section of native Kiwi bush land in the city of Nelson with a vast secret garden which goes up 70m over the city´s skyline offering unspoilt vistas.

Cancellation Policy
