Formally known as the "Retreat" and "Central" backpackers, once we moved in, we undertook renovations to bring Aurora Backpackers to our desired standard and are very pleased with the results. We have 14 rooms available in our central city location. Wi-Fi is available in every room and we have a well equipped communal kitchen.

Your hosts will be happy to help you during your stay in Nelson with things to do, local information and tour bookings.
