The Story Behind Accent's YHA Nelson Hostel
Famous Accents hospitality - now with International Youth Hostel standards
For the past 10 years Linda and Royce operated Accents on the Park Backpackers Hostel in Nelson. In July 2015 we moved our business and joined with YHA New Zealand in their great location at 59 Rutherford Street, beside the famous Nelson Saturday market.
Part of YHA, still a family owned hostel
Our Hostel is family owned and run which means we take particular care to ensure you are well looked after. At the same time we have the benefit of being part of the YHA Network (over 40 hostels in New Zealand). YHA's Mission is to deliver quality budget accommodation and travel experiences which enrich people's understanding of each other, the environment and New Zealand.
Our aim is to create a backpackers hostel which combines the best of both worlds...
We have plans to add a modern international style to the Hostel and this journey has begun... It will be an evolving process over the coming year involving a lot of paint and inspiration. We look forward to your feedback and suggestions.

Reputation for giving more than expected
We are not just offering a Bed for the night. Tell us where you've been, tell us where you are going and we will help you discover the best experiences in our sunny corner of New Zealand.
