Activities Board

Check out the activities blackboard or get in touch for some inspiration for your stay Nelson.
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 travellers 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, did we mention our Backpackers comes with its very own English-style pub where you can meet the locals? And you lucky guests get backpacker prices, just show your room card at the bar - can’t argue with that now can you!
