Really clean hostel, really good mattress, super friendly staff, good location (close to supermarkets and CBD, but as well close to Mount Taranaki). Just one thing for improvement: more sinks. But that's it! Amazing hostel!

The position is VERY good. 5 m walking to New World and PAK’nSAVE. 15m walking to coastline walking way and city center. Also, the decoration is excellent, which shows good taste of the owner. In addition, the room is very clean.

Paula and Brett were very friendly with a warm welcome, and took the trouble to explain things. The whole place was very clean and tidy. My room was spacious and a pleasure to stay in. The kitchen is set up well with everything needed. Well located for the city and parks and coast. An enjoyable stay. Thankyou.

Great hostel, kept to excellent standards by superstar Paula! She not only drives the shuttles, runs the day-to-day, the cleaning and who knows what else, but is always happy to answer any and all questions without complaint! Thanks for the great stay :)

I enjoyed my stay at Ducks & Drakes. Brett and Paula are very friendly and they also run a Taranaki Mountain and Pouakai Crossing Shuttle service. They were looking after me and helping me with making a safe and enjoyable hiking plan in New Plymouth.
