This beautiful old weatherboard building with views on the sea that survived the 1930 Napier earthquake has been turned into a lovely Hostel! The family and staff were lovely and very helpful. Our room was a corner room that got lots of sun. The bathrooms are each separate (not ensuite but each with a toilet and shower), which gave better privacy than other hostels I have stayed in. The TV room and dining area are cosy and comfortable. The outside courtyard area is great too and the cat, Masha, is very friendly. The facilities are perfect and the location couldn't be better. It was very quiet while we were there but it was winter. We had a great time!
