Nelson backpackers

Welcome to Almond House Backpackers, 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, getting outdoors and hammocks, while in winter we have a cozy lounge and all rooms have heaters.

We offer a range of accommodation from share rooms to private rooms – so there’s something to suit all budgets. It's backpacker style accommodation for the discerning traveller!

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