Napier's finest Backpackers Accommodation facility. Centrally located, ARCHIES BUNKER was the first of the Unornamented Style of Art Deco buildings to be constructed after the devastating earthquake of 1931. Built in 1938, it was used as the Automobile Association regional office for 60 years before being refurbished and it now features modern accommodation and facilities within this Art Deco style building. (No 34 in the Art Deco Guide book).
We are situated opposite the museum, in a quiet tree-lined street within sight of the information centre and only metres away from the city's action, bars cafes and restaurants.
We provide low cost luxury accommodation and can assure you of a memorable stay in our beautiful Art Deco City in the midst of New Zealand Wine Country.
Our facility sleeps over 50 people in spacious surroundings. We provide two large lounges; both with Sky TV. One is a peaceful retreat, while the other provides a pool table, large screen TV, board games etc. Out of the main lounge we have a deck and large BBQ, ideal for relaxing and enjoying the traditional kiwi way of life.
We are Qualmark certified with 4 star classification, members RoamFree, the Budget Backpackers Hostels Association and the Tourism Industry Association of New Zealand.
