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.

The hostel itself isn’t bad at all! The bedroom and kitchen area were quite comfy and the bathrooms were good as well. I’ve had problems with the other people, that are staying there permanently. There were loud and a bit weird too but I didn’t feel unsafe in any second. The long distance from the city is annoying but at least you’ll get a great fitness walk ever day.

Not good at all. The place was so dirty. There was *oo on the floor in the bathroom, and no one cleaned it up. There were people partying till all hours of the night, playing music and being very loud. The bed did not feel clean, nor was it comfortable. The only semi positive thing about this place is how nice the lady at reception was, but still, we could not get out of here fast enough. Would not even say its worth its very low price. Find somewhere else to stay, trust me.
