We stayed here (family of 5) for 2 nights on our way around NZ. Before we even got there they had been brilliant in working out how to accommodate us all and sorted out moving an extra bed into one of the family rooms for us. It was a very positive experience - the place was clean and well organised... More

A great value! Very friendly staff, perfect location and very professional establishment. Vegetarian restaurant downstairs for convenience after a long day exploring the region. You won't be disappointed!

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

I can only hope that the many, many happy, genuine, travellers that we welcome to Nelson and through our open doors will see your posting for what it really is. TripAdvisor recommended we respond and as the owner and person who had step in to help my poor staff deal with your unusual behaviour, I felt I needed to respond.... 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
