Our lodge is in a very quiet part of town, and very close to all shopping and the beach. Under new owners since April 2017, so have done some upgrading of tired furniture etc. The place has undergone a major clean More as well. Facilities for camping and tenting also available. Less

Response from Craig P, Owner at Aqua Lodge
Responded 30 Mar 2018
Thanks for your review , Golf. We are glad you had a good long stay at Aqua Lodge. More than welcome to come back and meet, or stay . Just letting you know know that we now have super fast fibre internet installed so so longer slow internet. It took us a while to get this sorted as it was a major process of changing to high speed. As far as rules go, we are a working hostel with all our people working so we have house rules for certain things so as all our guests have a great stay at Aqua Lodge. I am sure you understand. All other working hostels as well as non working hostels will also have rules. Our weekly / daily rent is similar to other working hostels but At Aqua Lodge, we go out of our way to help our guests. We just dont charge rent and do nothing . We assist our guests in any way possible and make their stay more comfortable. We assist our guests get jobs as well as any other help that they require.

Very nice little backpackers. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Only 10 minutes walk from Napier's city centre. Clean facilities! If you come to Napier looking for some seasonal work, this is the place to go. The manager helps all backpackers get a job.
Would recommend to stay
