We are Mike & Nani

After years of travelling and working in some of the world's best hotels and restaurants we have started on a journey to create the best backpackers in New Zealand.

We are a Kiwi and Brazilian couple who love to travel, get outdoors, soak up the sun and most importantly do it with others! Don't be surprised if you find us knocking on your door to see if you'll join us for a barbeque on the beach, to have a go on the paddle boards, a swim in the river, or a trip to one of our favourite wineries.

Come and join us! Stay the night or just enjoy a drink in our gorgeous beer garden and exchange stories with us, the locals or fellow travelers.

We look forward to seeing you at The Prince Albert Backpackers and Bar!

We're about a 5 minute walk to everywhere

Lots to do around the place

Have a look around

Around the place

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 travelers 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!

Dorm Rooms

Our biggest rooms still only have 6 bunk beds, plus all our rooms have en suites so you’ll never be waiting too long for that shower.

All the rooms are accessed via electronic key cards to ensure security.

Private Rooms

From Standard Backpacker Doubles to Family Double Rooms with beds for the entire clan we probably have something to suit. All our double rooms are fully made up with bedside tables and lights, crisp fresh linen and an en-suite bathroom
