A Pleasant Backpackers Accomodation In Lovely Napier”

This hostel is conveniently located on beautiful Marine Parade and is a short walk from the bus depot. My 6 bed dorm room had a waterview, was large and had comfortable beds. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils and is very clean. I recommend this hostel to anyone looking for a budget accommodation in Napier. My only negative comment is that there is. no oven or toaster oven in the kitchen.

For backpackers, great place to accomodate!”

The place is very clean. And staffs are friendly. You could make a friends there. Without cars, it is very hard to go huka falls and spa place. But, you could join many packpackers together. The clean bedrooms and community kicthen are great!
