The staff were extremely helpful. Dorms and hostel in general was very clean. I liked you could rent tablets for free during your stay and there was a Wii you could use.

Great place to stay, friendly staff, clean safe rooms with lockers, great facilities. Could have done with some entertainment in the hostel on Friday or Saturday night but there was plenty going on in neighbouring hoste so it didn't matter too much.

Good stay. For 2 nights I had a 6-pers dorm to myself. Kind staff. You can hire kayaks and bikes (and more) for free (most bikes are not safe or able for use (bad brakes or unable to actually cycle at all - but hey, it was free.. but still, be careful). The main space has a big TV, showing nice movies in the evening. Automatic lights switch off quickly while going to toilet/shower at evening/night, not handy.. Good location. Nice kitchen.And lockers in room (bring your own lock!)

Really cool place to just chill out.

I spent three nights at Bay Adventurer in beautiful Paihia. The hostel is ideally located, very clean, friendly staff. It is motel style, so does not feel very safe and is more appropriate for warm weather, as you need to walk outside to get to the facilities. I arrived after the reception closing time and my key had been left in a place where I would never have looked, had it not been for another traveller who found it for me. I had booked a ladies only dorm, but was in a mixed one by mistake.

This hostel was OK. The location was not far from the beach which was good. The facilities themselves were clean, and the staff were all friendly. But I didn't like the music constantly blasting; it made me not want to stay there again.

This hostel rocks! Swimming pools great but spa isn't anything more than a cool jacuzzi :p no biggie the ambiance was awesome and all facilities were clean and convenient. Would definitely recommend this hostel to others!

Crowd can change drastically making this hostel go fom mellow to party-town in a day, but be aware that EVERYTHING (including the courtyard) is shut down at 11pm. No amenities (wifi, breakfast, etc) but great location. In room lockers are nice and necessary.
