Almond is perfect. The owners and staff just understand what customers want and have created a perfect family-like small backpackers. It attracts the right people and so it feels like a second home. With just 25 beds it's small enough to give this family feeling and big enough to have a amusing time with similar-minded travelers! It's clean, well equipped, free wifi and bikes and staff is super friendly! Bravo!

spent 4 weeks at Almond House and enjoyed every minute. Fiona has lots of great advice on what to do in the area and makes you feel welcome. it is an easy 5-10 minute walk into town, close to shops, bars and restaurants in a quiet neighbourhood.
the rooms are spotless, clean and really comfy. lots of storage, bedside lamps, plenty of plugs, free wifi. shared facilities are fantastic too and always kept super clean.
both kitchens are superb and everything u need is in it. Did lots of baking here :-)
the lounge has a lovely fireplace and lots of space to relax and have a chat.
loved Missy the cat!
will always come back here!

A group of four of us stayed at Almond house in Feb/March 2013. It was a great experience. This backpackers is quiet, clean, and extremely friendly. It is so close to the main shopping area and central city. Their loan bicyles were a great help to us!! Despite having to change our booking several times the staff were helpful, friendly and efficient. We are returning to Nelson again in Feb/March 2014 and will definitely stay here if we can get a booking. Thank you Peter, Fiona and Staff. Howie and Vicki

The Almond House became my home away from home while I was living in New Zealand. The facilities are FANTASTIC and Paul and Fiona (and the kids!) are really welcoming and ready to assist in any way they can. I was a long term resident here and I loved every minute of it! You get a wide range of travellers who stay here, so it's not focused on just the younger crowd. The place was always kept clean and there was always space for everyone to hang out together or do their own thing. The location is perfect too; only a short walk to the city center and to many nice walks and hikes around the area.

And out of all the backpackers I've stayed at, this is by far my favorite. I highly recommend it!
