Had a cozy private room that was clean and perfect for a relaxing night after lots of traveling. Great location along the ocean too.


Such a cute hostel! Old house vibe. We stayed here for 1 night in a single room overlooking the beach. The room was clean and had fresh towels for us. The bathrooms were clean and well kept. There was a lounge area upstairs with a TV, couches & fireplace. Kitchen was spacious and also clean. Wifi was great as well! Would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone staying in Napier !


Its my 1st negative review ever. Why: Owner kicked me out of hostel for using the kitchen 3-4minutes after the time set in house rule. Solely for this, no littering, I was washing up after myself, etc. Owner scared me with agressive body language and kept repeating "I own this place!" Told me i am too dumb to read.Zero hospitality,no kind reminder first. I've been literally around the world, never seen such an agressive, unpolite, scary behaviour from owners. Location far from center&bus.


We had a lovely stay at the hostel, we'll definitely come again.

Classic YHA, everything was good. Value for money wise though, I think you can do better on AirBnB.
