The Adventure Hotel Nelson
The Adventure Hotel is somewhere between hostel mountain lodge and hipster boutique hotel. You can rent rooms with shared bathrooms, or have a comfortable private enclave to yourself or selves. For the money, this could be the best place to stay in Nelson, BC. It's close to everything, has an amazing coffee shop downstairs, and is comfortable with a modern touch. In many ways it reminds me of a junior Adara Hotel.
