Nelson backpackers

Welcome to Almond House backpackers and hostel, Nelson's super-friendly, cyclist-friendly, traveller-dedicated destination.

As travellers ourselves, we know what makes a great stay - whatever the season.

Summers are all about sunny garden BBQs and home made pizza nights in our outdoor oven, getting outdoors and hammocks, while in winter we have a cozy, sunny  lounge and all rooms have heaters plus extra woollen blankets.

We offer a range of accommodation from share rooms to private rooms – so there’s something to suit all budgets. It is homely backpacker and hostel accommodation for the adventuring traveller!

Make us your relaxing Nelson base and you'll be refreshed to explore the region, enjoy the evenings and plan your next adventure.

Book direct with us and avoid the middle man.  See a better deal elsewhere, let us know directly and we will match it.
