Wally's Facilities

Wally’s can sleep more than 60 people in a variety of warm, dry and spacious rooms from six-bed dorms for large working groups to more private rooms for singles and couples.

Our kitchen facilities are the best you’ll find in Hawke’s Bay, the comfortable lounge has an extensive movie library and our outdoor BBQ areas are great for socialising and meeting new friends during your stay.

Dorm Rooms

Wally’s spacious dorm rooms sleep a maximum of six people and are designed to give each guest as much space as possible, creating a relaxing and comfortable environment. All dorm beds at Wally’s have high-density foam mattresses, fresh sheets, pillows and pillowcases, for a great night’s sleep.

Private Bedrooms

Wally’s has a selection of double, twin and single rooms for those who like more privacy or want a break from sleeping in dorm rooms. All our double beds have quality inner sprung mattresses, fresh sheets, pillows and pillowcases, and duvets. Also, our two double rooms each have en-suite bathroom.

The Cottage

Wally’s has a private cottage with en-suite, which can sleep up to seven people. The cottage is in hot demand so make sure you book early! It has its own bathroom and toilet and is great for groups travelling together.


Most people staying at Wally’s rate our kitchen as our number one feature. It’s fully equipped with everything you’ll need and is designed so a large number of people can cook at once with multiple workstations and cooking tops with a combination of gas and electric cooking hobs. Nine fridges means there is loads of room to store food and beverages along with plenty of under bench storage for dry goods.


Wally’s large bathrooms are designed to provide guests with privacy and the gas water system ensures you’ll receive a quality shower with constant hot water. All bathrooms have tiled floors and are scrubbed clean every day. We also have a low ratio of toilets and showers to visitors so you should never have to wait too long.

Lounge & Library

Wally’s lounge is world famous in New Zealand due to its extensive library of books, over 500 movies to watch and a 60″ big screen TV. The lounge is perfect for wet days (not that there are many in Hawke’s Bay!) or just for when you need to chill out and relax. We also have a selection of card and board games along with four high-speed wireless computer workstations.


We have $2-coin-operated washing machines and dryers available. A standard wash and dry costs $6 and we can also supply scoops of washing powder for an additional $1 per scoop. See more in rates.

BBQs & Outdoor Areas

Wally’s outdoor areas are great for socialising over a few drinks and a BBQ during Hawke’s Bay’s long summer nights. The gas BBQs are free to use with utensils and cleaning equipment provided. Our outdoor areas attract plenty of sun from first thing in the morning for breakfast and coffee right through until the evening.


We have off-road onsite parking for 12 cars at a cost of $20 per week (permit required). Metered (paid) parking is also available on the street outside Wally’s.

WiFi Internet

Fast, reliable and unlimited wifi is provided free of charge to all guests. Our Internet connections are extremely reliable and fast, with no loss of speed when multiple users are online at the same time.

Loan Cars

We have five workers’ loan cars available for licensed, nominated drivers to shuttle themselves and other workers to and from work around Napier and Hawke’s Bay. Each car can comfortably carry five people. These vehicles can also be made available outside working hours for social and recreational outings.

Events & Outings

At Wally’s we have our very own dedicated events coordinator who organises activities for guests such as pool nights, 10-pin bowling, football games, beach and native bush outings, karaoke nights and so much more. All you need to do is ask us and we can help organise social outings and recreational trips while you’re staying with us.
