A bit outside but a nice hostel”
The hostel is a bit outside of the city center. The kitchen was unfortunately not very clean. It was very good that every dorm/room had his own bathroom.

Acceptable”
It's ok as far as backpackers go, but I've stayed in better. Whoofers were great, not sure they are enjoying the experience. Would help if owners or managers were friendly. Just the overall feeling of the place, I'm not usually wrong. I've also worked in this industry for many years here in NZ and overseas, running a couple of pubs etc in the UK. You really have to love people and love what you're doing to make it a success. It saddens me sometimes when I see this in my own country. Nelson is such an amazing little destination, be proud. There were rooms empty while I was there, I booked for a whole week, but none of my requests were even meet or discussed. Boo hoo, such a lovely pub - but a bit run down. Heard you were putting your energies into another one, sometimes it's better to do one thing really well, not always for the money. Good luck team.

Our travelling”
The place is brilliant & ideally located. Many positives in terms of the facilites and the layout of the pub & the rooms. However, what seems to be the non-permant staff, who currently live and work on the premises are the reason why you wouldn't want to stay there. From the moment we arrived, we felt unwelcome. The kitchen was often a mess by the end of breakfast- ironically, the same unfriendly people were in charge of the cleaning. They were the noisiest and showed very little respect to other travellers. At times and whilst in the eating area outside, It felt like being back in a school playground were the popular kids purposely monopolised the conversation & the shared areas. Been to many backpackers of exactly the same style, and never have we felt such negativity. Backpackers who are working there in the interim of moving on somewhere else owe to remain professional nevertheless.

Excellent value for money with free breakfast and a late check out. It's a bit of walking distance from town center but that didn't bother me much.

I had a hardest stay at Prince Alberts. I had activities everyday so sidnt get to enjoy their free breakfast but otherwise the stay was pleasant and quiet. Close to city center. Great hostel but very underrated.

Homely hostel above a pub”
Spacious private double rooms, great dinner deals, free parking
We only stayed for one night but Prince Albert was perfect for a stopover on our drive between Abel Tasman and Blenheim. One of the best things about this hostel is the dinner deals for guests in the pub - great value and great food!

Comfortable Clean and friendly.”
Nice old pub close to town.
We stayed for one night before doing the Heaphy track and it was a good choice. Staff were really helpful. We were able to leave luggage there for a trekking company to pick up a few days later to take to the other end of the track . We were given a lift down to the isite the next day to catch our bus. The twin room we had was clean and quiet with a bathroom. Would have liked longer there exploring Nelson.
