Napier's finest Backpackers Accommodation facility. We are situated opposite the Napier museum, in a quiet tree-lined street within sight of the Napier information centre and only metres away from shops, bars, cafes and restaurants. We provide low cost, clean, comfortable accommodation. Our facility sleeps over 50 people in spacious surroundings. We have two large lounges; both with Sky TV, DVD players and an extensive DVD library which is free to guests. One lounge is a peaceful retreat, while the other provides a pool table, large screen TV, board games etc. Off the main lounge we have a deck and large BBQ, ideal for relaxing and enjoying the traditional kiwi way of life.
Great location, perfect for Art Deco festival
Great location especially for Art Deco fest. Affordable and has free breakfast on weekends that is really good! Staff really really helpful and kind. Good socialising areas and a bookshelf where you can swap books. Has a kitchen which could be cleaner but obviously that’s dependent on the guests using it and not the staff. Bike hire good. Art Deco style outside. Museum is right next to it and is free (and really interesting). There are private rooms and shared rooms. Met some lovely people
We all had a beautiful stay at Archies Bunker hostel! We stayed in a private room, really comfortable bed, clean, fresh linen. Wonderful super-friendly staff! Highly recommend and close to all Napier has to offer! Definitely stay there again!
Exceeded expectations - GREAT
Exceeded my expectation. After reading some recent reviews I was not expecting much, but my wife and I were pleasantly surprised. We stayed there for 4 nights and attended the Elton John concert. The location is amazing - probably the best in Napier - central CBD and 1 street back from the beach. Bed and linen was extremely clean and to a high standard. We took our own bedding owing to some reviews - we left it all in the car as the sheets and pillows were lovely. The 2 woman who appear to run the place were friendly, caring, helpful. Free breakfasts were a nice surprise, but we ate out most days - had the breakfast once (toast, cereal & waffles) as we were pushed for time - it was fine, free so great value. This is a budget place so don't complain it is not 5 stars but it is excellent. We have travelled the world and stayed in many 5 stars hotels. This place is as good as anywhere we have stayed. We had Room One, king bed, own bathroom, shower, fridge, kettle, cups, glasses. For $85 a night - wow. The shared lounge is sort of non-existent, we stored our bikes in there. But who needs a shared lounge - get out and explore Napier. I highly recommend this place if you don’t want to spend $350 a night in a Marine Parade motel. Great value for money - and it does disappoint me some of the poor reviews. They do not reflect the property and remember you are staying in a cost effective place. Also it felt very safe with the door locked early, swipe card to get back in etc …
