hi, fyi: the power point in room 10 wasn't working - I am pretty sure it was the point rather than the things plugged into it. Also the handle to the shower tap has been snapped off in the upstairs show. It is still usable but annoying.

Very good hostel, just 5 min with car and 6 dollars with taxi from st aubyn st ( for naked bus for example). It s a quiet place with towel every day. Bathroom is big and clean, very important for ladies ahahah. Sauna for 5 doll. Lounge room is cosy and warmful. This place is best of New Plymouth!!! Thank you for staff


Excellent hostel and I've stayed in heaps across NZ. The whole place is very clean and comfortable, bedroom had a towel, a great radiator loads of storage space. Free tea and coffee, really good location too, especially for the park. The two dogs are beautiful!


Clean, comfy and warm
