The Bug Backpackers Nelson is much more than a bunk and a blanket. The hostel, spread over three houses and connected by a relaxing garden with lemon and apple trees, features comfortable beds and quality linens. In the colder months we are fully heated with thick duvets.

Run by travelers for travelers, the hostel has a homely, family atmosphere. It is an awesome place to meet and socialize with like-minded, independent travelers.

We hope you have found this site as you travel around beautiful New Zealand or you are planning a trip to New Zealand soon. Both of course mean a stay in Nelson.

Stay with us at ‘the bug’ and fuel your travel bug!
