Centrally located in the town with car parking ($3/day) facilities made it a good base to travel up to the Able Tasman Park. Rooms very comfortable and the communal facilities large enough to cater for the number of guests. Good restaurant and bar on site - Tuesday night jamming night for music enthusiasts. Walk to other shops, bars and restaurants.... More

Location is ok. Close to city center. 10 min to supermarkets. It's clean and has friendly, helpful staff. Small heater in the dorm room which did not make much difference. Got a second blanket which helped but could be warmer. All in all a really nice little hostel but unfortunately, not many people as I stayed, so lack of atmosphere.... More

Accents on the Park is a great Hostel in a great area of Nelson. Don't miss open Mic nights at the MACs Bar. The Staff was incredible helpful and nice (Chad! Canadian Guy) I extended my stay a few times and stayed for more than a week. Big Hostel, quiet at night and you have really everything what you need... More

I spent two nights at accents on the park. It's a really great place to stay. The staff was very friendly and made me feel welcome. The place is clean and tidy. It was great to get fresh bread and tea for free every morning. The vegetarian restuarant downstairs is also worth a visit

A really well run hostel with great, friendly staff, who are on hand for knowledgable tips re day trips/excursions (I think they can book for you too, although we didn't use this service). €20 key deposit, €20 deposit for rental of DVDs (both seem fairly standard from my travels elsewhere). The location of this hostel is a real plus point... More

Thanks for your generous comments. We are always grateful when travellers take the time to tell us about their stay with us. Your observations about noise from the after hours use of the kitchen has helped us change our supervision of this area. We do have other lounges that people can use later in the evening away from the guest... More

I had an unfortunate situation with the manager on the 10th August 2014 who handled things unprofessionally and rudely. I left early in the morning for a trip and my personals, clothes and bag were packed up during the day as another person had booked my double room which I had asked to be extended in the morning. I was... More

A warm welcome by jack, a long time employee. A double ensuite room, electric blanket on bed was welcomed, very centrally placed by the cathedral, fridge and tea/coffee in room. A bar/restaurant below which we used for dinner, no noise impacted on us at all in our room. Clean large kitchen. Plenty of seating

I really like the people who run this place. They are very helpful. Sadly though this place has gone down hill a bit since I last stayed there in 2011. I only stayed here for one night and I'm pretty glad I did. I was staying in a room with some people who had been there for a long time... More
