My friend and I arrived in Nelson in late October to set up home for the winter, and stayed at the Dancing Bear Inn for our first two nights before finding a place to live. Having stayed in HI hostels before, I expected good standards, but was pleasantly surprised to find that the standards here were the best I've come across. The whole building was recently renovated and is kept very clean and tidy, we staying in a twin-bunk private room for not much more than we would have paid to share with others, and were very happy with it. Breakfast is not included, but there is a well stocked kitchen and lots of fridge/cupboard space to store your own groceries. The private bathrooms are also a great feature. All the staff were very friendly and helpful with town knowledge, and with its great location on Baker St, we would recommend the Dancing Bear Inn to everybody.
