Egmont Eco Lodge YHA

Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

We're New Plymouth's highest-rated backpacker and YHA lodge.

Wake to birdsong in our modern backpacker's YHA (Youth Hostel Association) in central New Plymouth.

We're situated in our own peaceful seven-acre valley with three acres of native trees and a bubbling stream. You can laze in a hammock under the trees and listen to the birdsong or dare to feed our own monster Egmont eels by hand...

All of this is only a 15-minute riverside stroll to the centre of New Plymouth.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

We liked this hostel better than the star-rating would make you think. It had atmosphere, in large part helped by the chicken and cats randomly walking into the lounge to entertain the guests. Facilities were bad though; the washing machine in particular is a nightmare (cost us _so_ much money due to the bad instructions, and at least one other person had the same, with reception not only not offering a refund, but just ignoring it altogether). The kitchen was tiny, but well-stocked. Being way out of town (it's walkable, but only barely), it had a very nice backyard (complete with eel-stocked babbling brook) and balcony, and made it easy to get to talking with other people. Mattresses weren't the best, and windows lacked any kind of mosquito-netting.
Okay to stay at if you have your own transportation; otherwise find somewhere better.
