Welcome to our hostel

YHA New Plymouth is a cosy and lovingly restored boutique hostel nestled among native woodland. The hostel is an ideal base to explore Mt Taranaki, Surf Highway 45, the Coastal Walkway, the Sunday Farmers’ Market and many more gems located along the North Island’s beautiful west coast.
The hostel provides a variety of different accommodation options for backpackers, you can choose from 4 bed dorms, female only, twin/ triple bed, double and single rooms. Families and groups are also accommodated at YHA New Plymouth.

Facilities include a fully equipped kitchen with gas stove, large industrial oven, an instant hotwater zip and storage facilities for any your cooking supplies. If you’re a dab-hand in the kitchen, pick some fresh garnishes from our herb garden to add flavour to your meals, enjoy a picnic in our scenic garden filled with indigenous flora and fauna, or cook up a treat on our outdoor barbecue. Other unique features include our loveable resident Poodle cross pup Marvy, an instant friend, free bike hire, free use of our musical instrument collection and for those cold winter nights – snuggle up with a hot water bottle or electric blanket.

The Te Henui Walkway is right on the doorstep of the hostel, where you can experience scenic bush views, the sounds of indigenous birdsong and the Te Henui River. Just 15 minutes from the town centre and main attractions, you can enjoy convenience along with the award-winning Coastal Walkway, Puke Ariki museum, along with art galleries, shopping, cafes and bars – and the beautiful Mount Taranaki a short drive away.
