YHA Nelson by Accents
Ranked #19 of 45 Specialty Lodging in Nelson
Reviewed January 17, 2010

After travelling from Wellington and missing a transport connection we had an unexpected stay in Nelson. We rolled into the YHA reception in the evening and nothing was too much trouble. After sharing our story with the staff member we were checked in swiftly and she even booked our departing bus ticket ex Nelson for us in the same transaction. She also let us know that the markets would be on the following morning, and were worth checking out, so encouraged us to stay in Nelson for the day and catch a bus early evening instead.

We were so glad we did this because Nelson was a charming little town. We had a great dinner at a local pizza parlour, stocked up on locally made items at the markets the following day and had coffee at Lambretta's.

The rooms were basic but very clean. As were all the facilities in the hostel - the kitchen was spotless, with a free food shelf too, the dining area was tidy, and the lounge area was peaceful, with an adjoining dark and closed off movie room. We loved the hostel cat too, he was gorgeous.

This is a quiet, clean, and modern hostel in a great location in Central Nelson. We could not ask for more. Would be happy to stay here again.
