Hostel has all the facilities you could need, one major let-down was no free wifi, and paid wifi was very slow (0.22MB/s down). Other than that it was good. Hard to be in a bad location since Paihia is so small. Very close to beach and 5 min walk to centre of Paihia. Staff were very helpful and enthusiastic with evening events. Groups of KiwiExperience coming and going frequently so the atmosphere is good, though they may be a bit clique-ish. Quite poor security but nothing did go missing.

Pool and hot tub are just plain grim! Kitchenettes are vile, main kitchen is good but small, showers and toilets are ok. Nightlife good, decent bar. Much better accommodation for cheaper just a few doors up. Wifi poor. Outdoor seating area from kitchen filled with broken benches! Staff are incredible though and do the best they can despite being spread so thin!! Nightly bbq worth the money if you don't mind a long queue and potentially standing to eat!

Fine and dandy chalet-style accommodation with a bar with a good atmosphere and spacious kitchens. Got kept awake for a while by the chalet next door raging all night but thats just the vibe of this type of place, it's not really a quiet one.

No soap or hand towels in the toilets in the dorms. Spa tub dirty. Luggage storage area filthy. Overall not clean. BBQ was not good and skimpy.
