Great place to stay, clean, modern, stylish and right in the heart of Nelson city centre. The staff were fantastic and very accomodating. Bar was closed for renovation while we were there but it didn't matter, a short 1 minute walk sorted that out. Definitely stay again.

Wish we had more than a day to stay in Nelson, it is a charming town and the INNBetween Lodge is located in a great spot, only a block from the main street and across from beautiful gardens in the city center.

Rooms were clean and bed comfortable. I booked female only dorm and was happy with choice. Bathroom was well set out with good showers. Kitchen excellent but might be a bit small if hostel was fully booked. Location in Nelson was really central. I would definitely recommend to others.

This was one of my favourite hostels in New Zealand. The rooms (dorm for me) are really comfortable and thoughtfully laid out, with all the little things which make dorm room living so much easier - individual lights, hooks, mini shelf, under bed lockers. The bathrooms and communal areas are similarly well laid out, spacious and were always immaculate. Add...

Booked a queen with en suite in this charming and impeccably renovated old building. It's a hostel with some private rooms but as far as hostels goes this is pretty upmarket and the rooms are more in keeping with a boutique hotel. The location is opposite the lovely Cathedral gardens. It's a very central but quiet part of town with...

It takes about 10min walk from centre, and it's close to Nelson Cathedral. The room is lovely and clean but small, I stay at 6 female dorm room, but I think it's better for 4 persons. The owner decorates the hostel nice and stylish. To me, the best thing is pillow.
