Staff were very friendly.hostel is set up well for backpackers working in the area. Hostel location is on the fair side of napier near the port and beside a main road.so lots of road noises come morning and the odd train.only had a one night stayed here.

Awesome open plan area for communal area. Great ping pong table, cooking facility, wood burning stove, TV area. Nice and tidy standard rooms too, with good beds. Just don't need the motherliness nagging of the owner and would have given a fully star rating!
