The Bug

At the bug Backpackers Nelson the basics are done to an exceptional standard to exceed guest expectations. This means quality beds and linens. Fresh modern furniture. Top end appliances in clean well equipped kitchens. Modern clean bathrooms with top end fixtures and fittings. In the colder months we are fully heated with thick duvets.

This is an owner operated hostel with all the passion, service and enthusiasm you’d expect to enjoy from us fronting our own place. As your hosts, Richard and Rachael, we feel we have the ideal set up for today’s independent traveller. We work hard to create the perfect atmosphere for our guests.
