    Way chill place with chill, knowledgable staff! Very clean and well laid out kitchen. A little warm in January in the room, but that's why we go to the beach, right? The posted pics don't do it justice! A few burners on the hobs were busted...still very recommended

    I loved staying at haka lodge!! Perfect location! Super clean bathrooms and kitchen, the beds were so comfortable and weren't creaky like most hostel beds! I loved that you had your own charging points and light next to your bed as well as a curtain so you have total privacy. Would definitely reccomend staying here.

    Had an awesome time at this great hostel, which seems to be able to combine privacy with a great community feeling. The view is unbeatable, the staff welcoming and lovely and the rooms and facilities clean. The curtains and lockers in the rooms are a godsend! Thanks for a great stay in beautiful Paihia!

    Rooms needed more efficient fans (or air con) as it was very hot overnight when 4 people are sleeping in such close quarters.

    Beaaaautiful view from the common room. Really loved our stay here. Everything was always clean. Kitchen was great, bathrooms were great! Receptionist was a bit rude sometimes, but I understand they may have been stressed with a smaller number of staff. Would come back in a heartbeat though

    The room windows couldn't be opened, so it made the room literally an oven during the night.

    wonderful location with a great view. The facilities are modern and spacious. The kitchen is great but I would like to have a bigger range of pans. The staff sometimes seem to be bored and unmotivated. In the evening the reception is unoccupied very often and you have to the press the emergency button although it is not an emergency case. Usually the other guests sit in the lounge on their own with headphones on their ears. Can’t say I got in touch with many people. Rooms are small but very tidy

    The common area is lovely with a beautiful view of the bay. Perfect for relaxing with WiFi after a day on the water etc. However, there isn’t much of an atmosphere (everyone on their devices, not much chat) and the rooms are *very* small and warm (our window didn’t open and with no air conditioning and four people, made for some uncomfortable sleeps). All in all, good value but definitely no frills rather than boutique.

    Very Good

    Linen was old and dirty (hairs and yellow spots etc.) and our request to change it was ignored by staff. Due to this fact we did not have a good sleep. Other than that the location is great and facilities are great.
