My wife and i thoroughly enjoyed our stay at back packer's in new plymouth. Fantastic situation and very helpful staff. Will stay again . Many thanks.


The location is perfect--right across from the beach and near many places to eat and drink. I usually stay here when I have to catch a plane the next morning. The rooms are very clean. The bathrooms are shared but they're always clean.


This is an excellent backpacker - even in a country where many hostels are really high standard, this one is a stand out. The owners couldn't be more hospitable and the roof terrace with stunning sea views is icing on the cake. I think improvements are in progress - so it will get even better.


The location was perfect. The staff was very friendly. The community rooms were amazing and full of nice people. It has carpets all over the place so if you go to the bathroom with socks at night you will feel like home. Plus there is a giant blackboard in the hall where you can draw stuff so yeah go there...

Wow! This place is the perfect location here in town. Right near the Puki Ariki and Coastal Walkway. Within walking distance of everything and free parking in the city from 5pm and on Sundays. I'm on a road trip around New Zealand and this was a great place to start my trip off in
