Criterion backpackers guesthouse is located in the most photographed building of Napier town, as was stated in their advertisement. I can confirm it. The building is really remarkable and ideally situated on the central street, close to the ocean beach. Rooms were mostly small with shared facilities. Ours had a washbasin. On my opinion they need some refurbishment. Kitchen and dining room are spacious and still keep an interior design of 30-ties years of the 20th century. Hotel provides light self-service breakfast for their guests in the morning and in other time guests are free to use kitchen facilities for their own needs. In the same building downstairs is located a cafe-bar, owned I suppose by the same proprietor. Guests, seems, are supposed to come with their own towels, but when we`ve asked for for ourselves, we were provided by. I was satisfied by chosen accommodation in Napier and can recommend it to for backpackers, as well as for budget travelers wishing to stay in a centrally located inexpensive guesthouse.
