Such a cute hostel! Old house vibe. We stayed here for 1 night in a single room overlooking the beach. The room was clean and had fresh towels for us. The bathrooms were clean and well kept. There was a lounge area upstairs with a TV, couches & fireplace. Kitchen was spacious and also clean. Wifi was great as well!... More

Great location, within walking distance to town, the supermarket and across the road from the beach. There was a spacious kitchen downstairs with seating area and the TV room upstairs. The hostel was really clean and security was good. I stayed two nights, in a single room, the bed was so soft and comfortable and both nights I had a... More

I stayed here for two nights and just loved it. The hostel has many rooms, is spacious, and suited to all travellers. There is a fully equipped kitchen for your use, so backpackers can save a lot of money by buying food and cooking for yourself. Check out the RSA behind the hostel also, for an inexpensive hearty meal and... More

This is such a convenient hostel as it is so close to the Art Deco buildings in the town - a major attraction. It is easy to find as it is just past the Information Centre on the sea front. Get up early to see the sunrise over the bay - awesome! I found the single room so small it... More

I recently travelled to Napier and I just wanted a bed for a couple of nights, that was easy and convenient, the YHA Napier filled my criteria. I booked a single room at short notice, it was clean and comfortable, not large but suited me. The hostel is located on Marine Parade just a short walk from Napier centre and... More

Smooth check in and check out, spacious kitchen and dining area, rooms not too big but manageble, located in front of the beach close to city center. Countdowns and Pack n save around the corner. Receptionist gave us a good recommendation about the wine tours.

There was basically nothing wrong with this backpacker. Good location, relatively clean, nice building and friendly staff. We stayed here 2 nights doing winetasting and visiting Napier. The rental bikes could be slightly better condition but on the other hand they were half the price of other rental bikes.

Stayed for one night in a double room. Room was quite small however there was plenty of space in the hostel to hang out when not sleeping. Reasonable value given the central location and nice clean room and facilities, including the shared bathrooms. Staff were friendly also. Would stay again.

The double room is pretty tiny...just enough room for a tiny bed and a closet...there were only 3 individual bathrooms on the 2nd floor for 8 or so rooms...but it was never a problem...the bathroom and kitchen were about as clean as it can be for a hostel (we were fortunate that most of the other guests did a good...

A single room little more than a box for $45 not even a space for a table. Very disappointing. Would have been better elsewhere. Good location with excellent shopping nearby. Cheap feed at the RSA was a bonus.
