Property Description

We're New Plymouth's highest-rated backpacker

Wake to birdsong in our modern backpacker's in central New Plymouth.

We're situated in our own peaceful seven-acre valley with three acres of native trees and a bubbling stream. You can laze in a hammock under the trees and listen to the birdsong or dare to feed our own monster Egmont eels by hand...

Great for groups, family reunions, sport teams or the single traveller to enjoy the company of our many other guests. Short or Long term stays all welcome.

All of this is only a 15-minute riverside stroll to the centre of New Plymouth.

This is a holiday park, not a hostel. My room was in a completely different building to showers and toilets. Some where even outside! Then in the bedroom, there was no railing on the top bunk, and the ladders were not fixed and only had 2 for 4 bunks... The kitchen was good though

A nice place to camp but not to stay in the hostel. It was quite a dark room with the facilities being very outdated. A bit of effort could go into the hostel side of the park in order to justify the price.

A solid stay for a visit to New Plymouth. The lady on reception is delightful! Good atmosphere, I made friends here and we explored the town together. It's a bit of a walk from the centre but you can walk beside the river. Well equipped kitchen, ask Lynn politely if you need anything such as extra WiFi.
