Arrived for 2 day and stayed nearly 2 weeks. Nicola and the gang were really welcoming and friendly. The hostel had a real family feel and a mix of nationalities when I was there. Free wifi and free apples were a nice bonus! Only one suggestion is to get a plug for the sink. So much water wasted washing dishes.

Stayed at Stables Lodge for two nights, and it had everything that I needed. Well located, being a five minutes stroll along the coastal road to the centre of Napier. Friendly owners/managers, and other guests were approachable and respectful. I stayed in the budget studio, which had kitchen facilities and an ensuite bathroom with a great shower (good water pressure...

We initially booked one night but stayed for three. We enjoyed it here and found it homely. The beds were comfortable in a 4 bed dorm (bunks). Hot, clean showers and bathroom. The kitchen was large enough for us (winter time) not sure about the summer though!? But there is a large courtyard for the warmer months. We found the...

Very little room to relax in. Website promised free herbs and spices which were not available and no satisfactory explanation given. The staff and long term residents were incredibly unfriendly despite several attempts to ingratiate myself. I was promised work when I first booked here, this never materialised as I wasn't kept in the loop and given vague answers when...

I stayed in the lodge for two nights, arriving late on my first night at the hostel. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, even insuring I arrived safe and sound to the hostel. It is a very small, chilled out and cute hostel, the rooms each are comfortable and very private, which is rare in most hostels. The kitchen...

We stayed at the Cottage in Clive, not far from Napier but you definitely need a car. It was lovely and peaceful. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked and our hosts were helpful and charming. Staying in Clive does mean you will need a car so that you can get to and from Napier but that wasn't...

“I thought there would be a TV in the room and the bathroom wouldn't be shared by the rest of the backpackers as I paid for a premium double room. The TV didn't bother me and the shower had good water pressure. I interpreted the website description differently.”
