I don’t typically choose hostels of hotels but, this place was nice: Clean and comfortable, quiet and welcoming. Located in a very great location! Dancing bear has everything you need for a stay in Nelson at a great price. The staff is friendly.
Dancing bear inn is a hostel in downtown Nelson. Staff is friendly, accommodations are comfortable- just the basics- bunks, a bathroom down the hall and kitchen facilities in the basement. The lobby is warm and inviting. Nelson is a beautiful small town on the edge of Kootenay Lake. It supports the arts and has fun restaurants. Walking to the waterfront is a treat
First, since this is a hostel, you'll be sleeping with many people, in bunk beds in the same room. That said, it is conveniently located on Baker street and it's very clean. I recommend it if you don't mind the sleeping arrangements.
Very quaint, clean and comfortable environment; except they have a no shoes on policy. The staff are very professional. It is right on Baker St. which is the main drag of downtown Nelson. Baker Street is full of small privately owned shops and great places to eat no matter your taste. Nelson is known for its alternative approach to living life. If you have a zest for outdoors and all mother nature has to offer and love of being around wholesome, fun loving people this is a great place to visit.
This hotel is a great value and experience if you are staying in Nelson. The location is right on Baker Street and within walking distance of restaurants, bars, hotels and great night life. We stayed in a private room during our stay and it was awesome! The rooms are basic but very clean and the washrooms are right down the hall. The common areas were very cozy and had interesting people to talk with. I would definitely stay here again!
