Fodor's Review

This grand old house in Trafalgar Square, just off the main street of Nelson, feels more like a small hotel than a typical hostel, with its rich brocade fabrics, strong colors, soundproofed rooms, and immaculate bathrooms with high-pressure showers. It's a guesthouse and backpackers' lodge that will spoil you for all others. Rooms vary from en suite doubles with marble bathrooms and kitchenettes to dorm rooms; linen is provided. The balconies overlook the cathedral and its gardens. It's on a narrow street so pull around into the parking lot next door to unload.
