The Bug Backpackers Nelson is much more than a bunk and a blanket. Run by travellers for travellers, this hostel has a homely, family atmosphere.

The Bug is a great place to meet and socialise with like-minded, independent travellers. We also offer lots of FREE stuff: unlimited, fast WiFi, breakfast, bicycles and pick-up and drop-off shuttles to the bus station in town.

The hostel, spread over three houses and connected by a relaxing garden with hammocks and fruit trees, features comfortable beds and quality linens. In the colder months, we are fully heated plus offer thick duvets.

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