I suggest YHA include quality of and convenience of internet access (cable, Wifi) in their surveys, as this is very important to most users/members. Quality of internet access at Nelson YHA was fair.

Probably the best 'city' hostel that I stayed at in NZ.

I would recommend Nelson YHa to be one of the best in New Zealand

Loved the included Wi-Fi. Great staff, friendly and very helpful. good location, easy to get around the town. the only suggestion I could make is a power bar (or two) in each room, depending on the number of beds. Everyone has cameras, phones, computers, tablets, etc. it would make it a lot easier to charge these devices, without anyone suffering. Other than that, would recommend it to anyone.
