My favourite hostels – Accents on the Park, Nelson, New Zealand

Accents on the Park

Accents on the Park, Nelson New Zealand A great hostel in central Nelson run by the super friendly couple Linda and Royce. Housed in a hundred year old villa (which is rather old for NZ) and located immediately next to Christchurch Cathedral, Accents on the Park is a relaxing and spacious hostel which caters for all ages. It has a lovely garden and large bar and kitchen/dining area downstairs. Accents on the Park makes a great stopping off point before and after a trek through the Abel Tasman National Park. Most activity companies will pick you up from outside Accents and I stored all my luggage there for five days while I completed the coastal trail. My favourite things about this hostel are the lovely fresh baked bread and jam […] Read more…
