Friendly staff welcomed us into this hostel based in a lovely old building close to the town centre. We booked a double room and were given a family room with a double bed and bunk beds in the room. The room was very clean and modern and whilst there was TV and hair dryer, there were no towels. Would stay here again.

Stayed here 4 nights.Thought the place was Ok except for the showers until my last morning ..The owner got extremely angry with me because i checked out 30 minutes late and was moving to a different backpackers in the area.Initially refused to give me back my key deposit until he evenually relented.Very immature behaviour indeed.

Stayed: March 2011, traveled solo

Stayed here for over 5 weeks. After only a few days Doug had got work for us, which continued for the entire length of the stay. Both he and Rachel did their best to ensure that the quality of everything was top notch. Good equipped kitchens, many well functioning showers. Large dorm space, even in the fewer bed dorms. Large lounge both upstairs and downstairs, with a large free DVD collection.

Loved the stay there, and would absolutely recommend all bound for Napier to consider staying there!

Keep up the good work Doug, Julie and Rachel! :D

This was a very nice hostel to stay at. The location was great and the kitchen was clean and well stocked. The rooms and lounge were very comfortable and spacious.
The only problem was the bathroom - while showering the water goes all over the floor as there is nothing to stop it, so this makes the bathroom floor slippery and wet which is dangerous.
Also the dorm i was in was right next to the lounge and so i didnt get to sleep till quite late as people were playing on the pool table.
Overall a very nice and comfortable hostel to stay in.
