    Thanks ripleywd. There is another handbasin in the laundry and there's now a sign up pointing people in the right direction. See you next time.

    Nice accommodation that is easily within walking distance to useful parts of New Plymouth e.g. supermarket, museum, gallery, parks. Pretty much 'as expected' from a back packers - communal kitchen, shared lounge, books, National Geographics, thin walls, small showers.

    Yep. That's what a backpackers is Erixtuff. We do have rooms with private facilities should you not want to share the "communal kitchen, shared lounge, books, National Geographics and thin walls..." A few more salads might help with the "small showers".
