YHA Ahipara is located in an idyllic park-like 6 acre setting and has a range of accommodation options; a backpackers' lodge, tent sites, powered sites for camper vans and caravans, cabins, onsite vans, and a self-contained lodge. Facilities are well-maintained; the backpacker lodge includes it's own small lounge and a kitchen.

YHA Ahipara Backpackers & Holiday Park reception building includes a large lounge and dining area with a guest kitchen, and a full laundry just across the way. The lounge and dining area has a book exchange, information on what to do in the area, an internet cafe, open fire place, and even a table tennis table for rainy afternoons.
