This hostel is perfect for people who want a stay away from the bars and noise. It's located a little out of Paihia but it's no more than a 5 minute walk. My view may be bias as I met a great group of people here, however the rooms were thoroughly cleaned, the owners were lovely and created a very relaxed atmosphere. I wouldn't recommend this place for people who want a party.


Staff very helpful. Cosy living area.
