YHA New Plymouth Egmont Eco Lodge is a centrally located hostel in a seven acre valley surrounded by three acres of New Zealand native forest and a bubbling stream. Wake to the chorus of birdsong in the modern backpacker hostel accommodation after a perfect night’s sleep. Relax on YHA New Plymouth’s sunny decks or laze in hammocks under trees. Dare to feed the monster Egmont eels by hand.

I stayed in the Eco Lodge for 10 nights and it was the best place I have stayed in NZ. The rooms are clean and cosy, the staff are incredibly friendly and the location is perfect - close to the town but also within a...More

The location of this place is fantastic! It’s based in the middle of a forest but still only 20min walk from the centre, which makes it very peaceful and the perfect place to stay if you’re planning to go up Mt Egmont Taranaki. It hasn’t...More
