      This place really needs a bit of renovation work, as it looks quite worn. Even a new coat of paint on the walls would help a lot. The amount of posters and flyers on the walls in common areas and kitchen (and thus color and text absolutely everywhere) made me feel slightly uncomfortable. And the bunk beds were really squeaky as the metal ones unfortunately are. On the plus side, the location is really good (bus stop literally a minute's walk away), staff (including the dog) are really friendly, bathrooms and showers are nice and mattresses very comfortable. Having a fluffy clean towel is also an awesome bonus for a backpacker.

      New Plymouth Central”
      The staff and other guests were helpful and quiet. Being central it was a stroll to the museum, beach and shops as well as the beautiful gardens overlooking the town. History tours are available through the museum. Staff also help with other trips. Plenty of places to eat near by and the kitchen is adequate.

      Fine, but...”
      we had a room facing the library, above a bar that turned out to be very noisy. On two successive nights we were woken after midnight by rowdy revellers in the street below. The hostel could have done with its clientele clearing up better, as things were often left in sinks and worktops left unwiped. The hostel is very well positioned in the heart of town, convenient for museums and galleries

      near lots of places of interests”
      Stayed at Ariki Backpackers from 23-26 Dec. Staff is very friendly as well as the rest of the peoples staying there. Near to lots of places of interests such as Puke Ariki, Len-Eye and Coastal Walk. Room are spacious and generally clean (we stayed in the Family room). However, it can be quite noisy as there is a bar located downstairs, which partied till 2am. No carpark around, so need to park at the nearest carpark near the Intercity bus-point.
