Arrived not having booked and found a budget room with en-suite available. Sort of neat in that the bed was a double bunk (think just really high double up near the ceiling with ladder to get up and a built in sofa below. This sort of makes it really spacious. Great toilet/shower. Kitchenette in the room was handy enough for...

Really friendly staff, the kitchens were well equipped and the wifi was free and super fast, the only thing that lets this place down would have to be the lack of showers and toilets. but for what you pay I would stay again, but not in the high season. Close to the city, and all the things you want. free...

It's a really nice place to stay and not a long walk to the city center. Nice kitchen facilities. The beds were as they usually are in backpacker hostels. I like the overall theme of the hostel though even though I'm not a big fan of horses, but it gave a nice authentic feel to the experience.

We met travellers from all over the world, with different backgrounds and interests. People could sit in the common living room and talk, watch TV, read a book from their small library or...

The bathroom facilities were very pleasant and modern and I also chose Stables Lodge for the free wifi. However, there was only one socket in the bedroom which I found almost impossible to deal with having three...

We stayed at stables lodge backpackers whilst working in Napier and it immediately felt like home, the only down side to staying in a hostel so long is great people came and went but often lots came back when they passed back through Napier. Walking distance to everything in town - a pack and save and warehouse are very close...

Prettiest hostel I've ever stayed in. Lovely atmosphere, great people. Slept in a 4-bed room, really well kept & equipped, always nice to have a cupboard to lock your stuff away. Bathroom & kitchen facilities well kept and clean, enough space for the number of beds. Would love to return!

Had a wonderful time here with my friends! Clean, nice staff, good wi-fi, close to centrum and a short ride to beautiful beaches and waterfalls. The staff had a lot of fun activities like bonfire, volleyball, gamenight & parties which made you bound very well with the other backpackers.

“I thought there would be a TV in the room and the bathroom wouldn't be shared by the rest of the backpackers as I paid for a premium double room. The TV didn't bother me and the shower had good water pressure. I interpreted the website description differently.”
