Egmont Eco Lodge YHA

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.

About Egmont Eco Lodge YHA

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.

Guest Reviews

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.
