One of the best hostels I’ve stayed at in New Zealand. The property is tucked away in a little forested area with plenty of outdoor seating which makes it feel like you’re not even in a city. What makes it even better is that it’s...More

About
Description
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 More 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. Less
