    Great hostel in Paihia. Location is excellent and it is a very clean but cosy hostel. Private room very well organized and almost luxery. Common room good combi between open ktichen and lounge, which gives good atmosphere. Very nice place to meet fellow travellers.

    This was one of the nicest hostels I stayed at for two weeks in NZ. It has less of a traditional hostel feel to it but this was a refresh for me. The dorm rooms have privacy curtains, outlets, and lockable areas below the beds for everyone. Very clean bathrooms and shower areas.

    The location is amazing and right opposite of the harbour. It’s in the middle of everything that is happening in Paihia. All the facilities and dorms are perfect, the kitchen is really nice too. The staff is amazing and will help with everything! Perfect choice for BoI

    Hostel was very clean, great facilities and private bunks. Lockable storage under beds was helpful for our large rucksacks. Great location, next to beachfront and town cafes and shops. Lovely bay windows to chill and good wi-fi. Big kitchen area and plenty of cooking equipment. Dorms quite narrow to manoeuvre around and low ceilings on the top bunks which meant we were unable to sit upright on top bunk. Privacy of beds and charging ports and bed curtain great for comfort and privacy in dorm.

    The only down sides of the hostel is that there’s no entertainment so the atmosphere was a bit low and the rooms were too small. Other than that the staff were really helpful, the rooms and toilet/ shower facilities were very clean. The hostel had great facilities to cook. Very good hostel

    This was a really nice, chilled place to stay with an incredible view from the kitchen/lounge. Atmosphere is friendly but quiet, staff are helpful. My one piece of criticism is that the dorm rooms are cramped - we were 6 friends in 1 room so we coped ok but I think it'd be slightly more awkward to navigate with strangers and would get a bit claustrophobic for longer than a couple of nights. They are well equipped though with plug sockets, a little shelf, under bed storage etc.

    Hostel next door to bus stop so easy to find. The lounge and kitchen was well set out and nice to lounge around in. Hostel quiet not many people around, same can be said for the whole town. Not much to do in Bay of Islands, wouldn’t stay for more than a night
