Great times and I cannot complain, I got my beauty sleep. Me and my friend was supposed to stay for 1 night ended up with 2 nights. Thanks ladies for cleaning the room until we decided to stay an extra night. We really enjoyed our stay! Most helpful receptionist and very nice place 5/5 Best regards from 2 Swedish guys.

This is hands-down the very best backpacker's I visited in New Zealand, if not the best I've ever stayed at. Beautiful rooms, incredible kitchen, amazing courtyard, yummy on-site restaurant..I could go on! Location is absolutely fantastic as well. Make sure you stay more than one night because you will not want to leave.

If you want cool and inexpensive in Nelson, this is the place to stay. We booked a queen room with shared en suite - great decor and incredibly clean! The owners are lovely and helpful, and made it easy for us to extend our visit when we decided to stay a second night. Highly recommended!

This is a boutique hostel located in what is probably the best part of the center of Nelson - across from a lovely park and at the start of Trafalgar street. The hostel was recently renovated (march 2015) with great style and chique and with amazing attention for details. The owners are very nice and helpfull, there is free parking,...

Stayed one night with a girlfriend. As an older flash packer, I found this freshly renovated hostel to be spot on. Hair dryers and straighteners in bathroom - nice! Several outside areas for socialising - spot on. Freebie bread and pastries - yumm. Friendly receptionist, car parking and quiet. We are out at Urban Oyster Bar - really good food

I enjoyed 2 nights before and after the Abel tasman national park adventure in your very comfortable and very well equipped lodge. Thanks to the very welcoming atmosphere, help whenever needed and nice conversations! Whenever I'll be back to new Zealand, the inn-between will be my very first address! Good luck with the new restaurant. Hope to see you soon...

THE INNBETWEEN LODGE & BACKPACKERS is a boutique hostel located in sunny Nelson's city centre. The locally owned and recently refurbished establishment has been awarded a TripAdvisor excellence award and provides a warm, inclusive, and homely atmosphere for all guests to enjoy. The INNBetween is in the ideal location for making your way around the city - with bikes available for hire, it makes seeing our city or nearby beach just that much more of an adventure. We are perfectly situated only a two minute walk from the main streets of Nelson City - bars, cafes, nightlife, shopping, galleries, and the must see Saturday Market. We are also within perfect walking or biking distance from the city beach Tahunanui, and other amazing must sees such as the Centre of New Zealand. Our in house activity desk offers information and can help with bookings for activities in the Nelson Tasman region - including the Abel Tasman, and are always more than happy to help give suggestions for excellent things to do around the city. Watch the sunset over the Cathedral Park from one of our balconies, or relax in our lounge watching TV or Netflix, using our free high speed WiFi and charging stations. Come in and socialize, play board games, or even read a book in the late afternoon sun - here at INNBetween we have a place for everyone. On the days you don't feel like cooking, come try our unique onsite cafe and bar, otherwise create and share cuisines with fellow travellers in our brand new, fully equipped kitchen and dining area that includes daily, complimentary fresh bakery products.
