  • I stay a week in a 6 bed dorm ensuite, clean bathroom, very confortable bunk bed, slow but FREE WIFI, the hostel is about 10 minutes walk from downtown, free breakfast and $10 meals special for backpackers. I've really enjoyed my stay so i would like to thank the managers and staff to be so friendly, helpful and welcoming. They may not have a swimming pool and Spa but you don't need this, to enjoy Nelson.
