YHA New Plymouth

Description

YHA New Plymouth Egmont Eco Lodge is a centrally located hostel in a seven acre valley surrounded by three acres of New Zealand native forest and a bubbling stream. Wake to the chorus of birdsong in the modern  backpacker hostel accommodation after a perfect night’s sleep. Relax on YHA New Plymouth’s sunny decks or laze in hammocks under trees. Dare to feed the monster Egmont eels by hand.

The YHA New Plymouth hostel is within easy driving distance of Mt Taranaki / Mt Egmont or the hostel staff can provide a shuttle bus to Egmont National Park. 

YHA New Plymouth Egmont Eco Lodge has a large variety of backpacker accommodation (single, double, twin, shared and family) available as well as tent sites. In the evening sip a cappuccino, watch theatre and relax with a slice of the complimentary delicious Egmont Cake served nightly. At YHA New Plymouth Egmont Eco Lodge we aim to provide the very best friendly hostel atmosphere.
