Nelson Hostels

Nelson Travel Tips & Suggestions

Incredible town -- the hidden jewel of Canada. It's where we all want to live. Great restaurants, coffee shops, galleries, and cool people. I'll be back in January to check out the skiing.
Nelson is a fun, hippie and hemp-lovin downtown, especially on the summer. There are over 300 heritage buildings, a streetcar and of course the lake. Markets in the summer, lots of attractions nearby like caves and hot springs, and a great ski hill in the winter. This town is big enough now to have a larger identity, but the core is free-spirited, young-thinking, green, artisan and not permanent. Funny how so many stay.
I am from Germany and I visited Nelson this year with my whole class for 2 months. It was the graetest time I ever had. Thank you. I really enjoyed the trip and love this small town. I live in Hamburg, that's a really big town, with 2 million people. So I hope I can visit Nelson again!!!
