One night stay here - new Plymouth is lovely! Staff were super friendly and nice. Rooms and kitchen are basic but do what they need to do. No lockers for bags or privacy curtains but did still feel safe. Towels provided always a bonus!

Difficult to review as staff fantastic but facilities old,very worn and smelly. Large holes in carpets, upholstery was dirty and not enough space for number of people to eat at table. Very good central location but impossible to ignore loud, thumping music of kareoke bar till 2 am for Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. Great having an ensuite shower and toilet in dorms, mattresses and bedding nice,comfey and clean.
