This beachfront hostel overlooking the Pacific Ocean is a former hotel built in 1921. We have a varied selection of room types, a homely lounge, and a well equipped kitchen and garden courtyard for chilling out or dining out. Add cheerful staff and you have a hostel with character and a warm atmosphere.
Sparkling sunny Napier is a city with style surrounded by fine vineyards and looking out to Cape Kidnappers, colonised by the beautiful dynamic gannet seabird. Destroyed by earthquake and fire in 1931 and quickly rebuilt, Napier is now a world recognised Art Deco architectural gem. We can help you plan art deco, wine, gannet or sightseeing tours.
If you want something a little more adventurous you could try para-sailing, ballooning, windsurfing, kayaking or mountain biking. For the kids we have mini golf, playgrounds just across the road and in nearby Hastings there is Splash Planet water theme park.
We are situated very close to The National Aquarium and Kiwi House, Hawkes Bay Museum, Ocean Spa (hot salt water pools), and the War Memorial Conference Centre.
Napier City Centre, restaurants, cafes, bars, takeaways and supermarkets are all within 5-10 minutes walk and the Intercity/Newmans bus stop is close by.
We look forward to seeing you in this relaxing sunny seaside town.
This is a Trusted Review. Why?
My friends and I had a great stay at the YHA in Napier. It was a basic, clean place to stay for 2 nights. There were three of us in a 4 bed share. They cleaned the bathrooms and kitchen daily, and had an assortment of kitchen supplies for our use. And a great outside patio with picnic tables. The location on the beach and near the main center of town couldn't be beat. I think the biggest drawback was the noise factor - the sound of guests opening and closing doors traveled well - but that was easily remedied with earplugs. The showers weren't the best but at least there was hot water. My friend who has stayed in many hostels before said this one was probably the nicest.
