This Back-Packer / Hostel is located downtown about ½ block from the City Hall & Town Center main pedestrian street as well as the sea-side park. So it’s close to everything. Our room facing the alley was small but had a private bath and some furniture. The kitchen has electric stove tops which limited cooking options and room in the refrigerator tight. The kitchen/dining area could get crowded but we did not have a problem using it. The Napier Historical Society’s Walking Tour of Art Deco buildings was excellent and well worth the time and ticket price. Do the tour first if you can so you’ll know more of what your seeing. Parking on the street was not a problem. We stayed 1 night.
