Fodor's Expert Review The Innbetween Lodge and Backpackers

335 Trafalgar Sq., Nelson, Nelson, 7010, New Zealand

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 will spoil you for all other hostels. 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.

PROS

  • a terrific value
  • lovely old Victorian building with garden walks just across the road
  • outdoor bar area and small bistro out the back

CONS

  • lots of stairs inside
