    I was visiting Napier for the first time and staying at the Criterion was the absolute best location. I could walk out the front door and the beach was one block away. Very central for walking I am 76yo and really had fun getting to meet so many nice people. Sharing a bathroom with both sexes was something new for me but I survived and would do it again. I leave for Florida in one week and can honestly say my time in Napier and my stay at the Criterion were the highlights of my NZ stay.

    Pro: Location, cool old building, big social area Cons: Horrible WiFi - never worked. Advertises parking but only paid street parking available (paid in 2-hr increments). Free public parking 9 min walk. Advertises towels included but not the case for dorms )only single rooms). If you mention that, they will give you a towel. Only ONE two-prong outlet in a room for FOUR people trying to charge phones at night. Light above bed did not work. No privacy curtains. Not recommended for the $$.
