    I was really happy with the cleanliness of my room and the common area/bathrooms. The mixed bed dorm I stayed in was small but it was just enough space for a short stay. The location was fantastic, one road down from the sea and a 5 minute walk into the town centre. The free parking directly outside the hostel was a massive bonus, and the wifi was really good. All in all, a really enjoyable stay!

    Small but affordable hostel. The facilities seem quite old, but worked fine. Small kitchen, but the hostel wasn’t busy so this was fine. It was a shame that the hostel lacked much atmosphere - but overall fine for a stopover for one night. The town as a whole didn’t have a lot going on, so you don’t need long here.

    Cool little hostel. Close to the supermarket and bus stop. Kitchen does get messy very quickly and can be a bit cramped if a few people are trying to cook. Seems to be a lot of people staying and working there long term so not the most social place.

    Stayed in one of the private rooms. PRO: - relatively good location. Everything reachable within a short walk - doors have an electronic key card, so it was safe CON: - very dodgy atmosphere. Felt like a former druggy house turned into hostel - staff was helpful but very grumpy and rough at times. - Cleanliness in the kitchen was ok but the bathrooms were pretty gross All in all there are probably better hostels in Napier that charge the same. Would not book again.
