there are no lockers in the rooms


Rooms and bathroom are good. Free, but very slow wifi.


The staff were great apart from one person in charge who I had a disagreement with. The East Street Cafe beneath Accents is run seperately and serves great food and has a Music jam session every Thursday .. It takes a while to get going but is really good The Palace is better than accents.


Very nice place to stay at in Nelson, good beds, clean facilities and well equiped kitchen ! The bar-restaurant next to the backpackers place is really a plus. And it is very close to the city center by walking.


I stayed in the 'dungeon' 8 bed mixed room, and other than a slight smell that it hadn't seen light in a while, I really couldn't complain. If I wanted a nicer room, I should have paid more. Good facilities, super comfy common room- perfect for a rainy day, and the friendliest manager I have ever met! Would absolutely stay again!


Nice location and friendly staff. I liked the old looks of the room and the mattress was the best I had so far compared with other hostels. The hostel has a nice bar and a separate kitchen. However, the kitchen has no atmosphere, is not very clean and a lot of stuff is either absent or broken.


Very good atmosphere, is worth for a visit! I loved the old-fashioned style.

I had the cheapest room for 2 nights. It was situated in the basement, close to common kitchen and garden. Kitchen is connected with cafe at the same basement. if you want to pass to bathroom or toilet - you have to get there through cafe, which customers also use these toilets! Air extraction system in kitchen almost don't work so U can feel the smell of cooking even in room. Rooms are also occupied by long-stay-backpackers, who don't care about cleaness in the room! Common area is very dirty!


Just limited free wifi, but otherwise a lovely hostel with very friendly stuff. The owner checked himself if the room was clean and bed made before new arrivels.


Great facilities and super clean! The fresh (FREE) bread eat morning was a great bonus too!

Had an awesome stay at Accents on the Park. Rooms and Facilities were spotlessly clean. Staff were very helpful and pleasant and location was perfectly suited to being so close to the centre of town. Would definitely go back and have already recommended
