Property Description

This beachfront hostel overlooking the Pacific Ocean is a former hotel built in 1921. We have a varied selection of room types, a homely lounge, and a well equipped kitchen and garden courtyard for chilling out or dining out. Add cheerful staff and you have a hostel with character and a warm atmosphere.

Sparkling sunny Napier is a city with style surrounded by fine vineyards and looking out to Cape Kidnappers, colonised by the beautiful dynamic gannet seabird. Destroyed by earthquake and fire in 1931 and quickly rebuilt, Napier is now a world recognised Art Deco architectural gem. We can help you plan art deco, wine, gannet or sightseeing tours.

If you want something a little more adventurous you could try para-sailing, ballooning, windsurfing, kayaking or mountain biking. For the kids we have mini golf, playgrounds just across the road and in nearby Hastings there is Splash Planet water theme park.

We are situated very close to The National Aquarium and Kiwi House, Hawkes Bay Museum, Ocean Spa (hot salt water pools), and the War Memorial Conference Centre.

Napier City Centre, restaurants, cafes, bars, takeaways and supermarkets are all within 5-10 minutes walk and the Intercity/Newmans bus stop is close by.

We look forward to seeing you in this relaxing sunny seaside town.

    Great location, great place, 2 things that bothrd me, 1 the bath rooms are very old and do need to be renewd, thats not en extra its a must!, in my room the little lamp next to the bed was getting very warm... so i do think there is a bit of a risk for fire , the lamp next to the other bed didnt work. In the clean kitchen there were some bords ordering to clean, from my experience until now saying it nice would work better......

    The hostel is on a super location almost on the beach, only 5 min walk to the center of Napier. The hostel had good facilities and a kitchen which was pretty clean for a hostel. When asking a staff member for suggestions on what to do/ see in Napier I received a quite rude response that I should use google to find something. I do not understand this attitude of a staff member of a hostel in a touristic location... Overall I was pleased with the hostel.

    Be Aware! Visited this hostel for a concert this month I had to work until early afternoon and did’nt get to the hostel until after the reception shuts @ 8:30pm!! No contact number on the door had to sleep in the car on the beachfront for the first night of our visit. The next morning when reception was finally open the lady was quite rude in stating that you should of read our things to note section at the very bottom of their website.. would’nt stay again bad left bad taste in my mouth, bet

    The room I had (25) was not clean, and the bed was completely broken. Even at that price point I expect a non-broken bed. I got bitten there too, probably a spider. I bet they didn't vacum the room properly for a while. Bathroom was ok but is missing ventilation so condensed water don't drip all over your stuff after showering (it was a short shower!). Security is ok, tho most of the time, nobody is at reception. Strict rules in the kitchen and staff very short with guests about it..

    YHA Napier was the third YHA we had stayed at on our trip and were so excited, only to arrive and be utterly disappointed! The hostel needs so much attention and was really rundown. The hostel had no vibe compare to any other place we had stayed and had so many other rules compared to the other YHA. It was in a great location by the beach, but that was the only thing going for it. Parking was also hard to find for the time we needed. It was such a shame that this YHA wasn’t like the others.
