Great place, we stayed in one of their double rooms in Jan '06. The bed was very comfortable and the sheets were nice and clean. We only stayed one night due to time but if I'm ever back in the area I'll definitively stay here again!

My mother and I stayed here in the winter and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We were within easy walking distance of the Tasman Sea, the city centre, and Pukakura (sp) Park. The view of Mt. Taranaki from the town was lovely. The lady in charge of the front desk was exceedingly polite, friendly and helpful. We had a delightful time while we were there. :laugh:

Situated in a quiet residential street, yet only a five minute walk to town. Supermarket, and take-aways close by. A short walk to Puke Kura park, or the race ways. Hostel is clean, lovely hot showers. Lounge area is big and comfortable , has sky tv, and a mini library. Dinning area has a big long table , which is great for meeting other backpackers. Kitchen has every thing you need.
