Having stayed at other hostels/backpackers and seen many of them, this place is really nice. Accents on the Park is clean, well kept and it looks like a hotel. Rooms are a good size, attractive and the same goes for the bathrooms. We stayed in one of the few ensuite rooms in the back and it was nicer than some hotels we've been too. The kitchenette area and television were good, when we ran out of tea we easily got a refill. Staff is polite as well, especially the manager. If you come by car you will pay about 3 dollars to park next door for the night (they give you a pass when you check in). The location is along the square, very nice area and you can walk throughout Nelson to go grocery shopping or get a bite to eat. There is an excellent tourism information center in Nelson proper as well. The ensuite room we had was a good value and was usually very quiet. However, at no fault of the hostel (they have signs telling guests to be considerate after hours) someone woke us up talking on his mobile right outside our room door around 3:00am. There is a computer outside the door for someone to use and it attracts other guests to hang around. My suggestion is they move it away from the ensuite rooms. We still enjoyed our visit very much. There is a very nice cafe in the cellar area, the food quality is excellent and it is a favorite for locals.
