This hostel is very well located, within walking distance of Nelson's main street. The weekend market is also right next door.
The room was very small, with just enough room to walk around the bed. Most of the bedrooms are above street level, and it can be quite a hassle getting luggage up and down. Maybe a lift should be a future option?
The kitchen area seemed to be left quite messy most of the time we were there. I know this is more of a function of the hostellers rather than the hostel, but perhaps a stricter cleaning regiem may be required.
Loved the corkscrew fastening!

Room Tip: Go for a street level room if you can.

Very clean basic rooms with very helpful staff who were very knowledgable on the local area. Kitchen is big and clean with big communal areas with stuff to do. No problems and would stay again when we hopefully come back in the summer time.

I rocked up in town without a reservation and was welcomed by helpful and friendly staff.

Accommodation in a single room was small and basic, you have to make your own bed, but clean and well maintained.

Bathroom was spotless as was the kitchen. I didn't check the shower pressure as I ran out of time.

My friendly and informative receptionist helped with directions to the chemist and watchmaker and would appear to be the fund of all knowledge.

Stayed for 2 nights here. Average and nothing fancy. Nothing to complain about the kitchens and communal area, they are huge and well equipped with ample number of seats and sofas around.

Here comes the bad, Shower pressure is probably one of the lowest I've encountered in all my accommodations in NZ. I had one of the worst sleeping nights here too, as the dorm rooms are situated right beside the main road where traffic goes through the whole night long. If you are a light sleeper do not go for the dorm rooms beside the road!

The only best thing for YHA Nelson is that it is located at the centre of the City Centre, other than that its just a pretty average hostel compared to other hostel around the area!

Tip:
1) Go for Palace or Tasman Bay Backpackers around the area, you get FREE wifi, FREE breakfast (FREE Dessert at Tasman Bay) at the same price you pay.
2) Ask for rooms that are away from the main road if you are a light sleeper!

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms that are beside the roads!

Our double room was a bit small and bland but that's not really an issue. The kitchen was a good size and the communal areas have a lot of seating, table tennis, and a piano. No issues with the bathrooms. The staff were nice & friendly.
