We loved our stay at the mousetrap! The little hostel has a cosy atmosphere and a great view on the sea! we felt like at home! even the 8 mixed room was spacious and the beds where really comfortable. a nice place to slow down and get some rest. you can sleep at 11pm because the staff asks everyone to be quiet, or go out on the street and be right at the main bars! love it there!
What a great find!! This hostel is just fantastic! Although it may look a little old, it has a lot of character and such nice surroundings! The staff are great and the owner/ receptionist is fluent in English and German so was helpful to a variety of different travellers. She really promoted the area and told about the arsenal of activities there are to do in Paihia. One big bonus was that there are free bikes for you to explore the area. I definitely think more hostels should be like this one!
The staff were all very friendly and approachable and very good if you had any questions about the surrounding areas
Really homely and welcoming hostel, we had a lovely stay. Ample bathroom and kitchen space. Possibly the cleanest hostel we have ever stayed in. Great that we could also borrow the bikes to get around.
Great hostel! Cosy, clean and great location. Jake and Nikki are great owners, always ready to help! Try and make friends with T who lives across the road, always a good laugh.
Great atmosphere due to the carefully chosen interior decoration, the very clean facilities and the friendly and sympatic owner.
A lovely hostel, like staying in a large shared house, several kitchens, all clean, our room was clean and had a sea view!
Really enjoyed our stay here and I would definitely stay here again. The staff were really helpful and the place was so clean, plus the room was really nice.
