Accents Hostel, Nelson Accommodation

Accommodation for 2024

If you are coming to Nelson for the weekend, we recommend you consider staying at:
YHA hostel accommodation in Central Nelson

YHA Nelson by Accents

Accommodation: Linda and Royce love sharing their place with musicians and friends of Ceol Aneas.

If you’d like to stay with other students and musicians this year, they’d be a great option for you.

Located in the heart of Nelson, the YHA is in walking distance to all the festival venues, classes, shops, cafes, Saturday Market etc. the hostel has large kitchens and dining spaces and a variety of rooms, both Private rooms (Single, Double, Twin, Triple) and Share/Dorm Rooms.   Slow sessions happen in the dining room and in the courtyard if its Sunny 😊

Book directly with Accents:

Private Rooms are available once Ceol Aneas Registration is Open, by email/phone  (not available online). Share/Dorm Rooms can be booked directly on our website for the best rates. Please indicate if you are a Ceol participant so they can allocate you to a room with your friends or other musicians

Email [email protected] with “Ceol Reservations” in the subject line or phone Nelson +64 (0)3-545 9988 or 0800 888 335. If you are a YHA member just tell them when you enquire.

If you do try and book through most websites including the YHA New Zealand website you will see it shows no vacancy over the Ceol Aneas weekend. This is to ensure there are enough beds and rooms held for Ceol Aneas participants over the entire weekend.

With thanks to Royce and Linda who are great supporters of Ceol Aneas.
