    Very close to the shopping centers and where to get food. Staff and residents of hotel were welcoming, accommodating and friendly. I arrived when closing time and they waited for me to check in during closing. Good walk near the lake front too. Thank you guys!!

    This is with out a doubt the best hostel I’ve stayed at in New Zealand! It’s extremely clean, the kitchen is huge with loads of space, the view is absolutely incredible, the wifi top notch and unlimited (good enough for Call of Duty Mobile), the showers are hot as & have pressure. This is a very well thought out space for all types of travellers. Lastly the staff are amazing. Anneka went above and beyond to help me and I can’t thank her enough. Niss & Rachel have also been awesome. Cheers Haka!

    Woow, one of the best hostels I have been to in my this lifetime, location is just perfect for the morning east sun facing meditation. Best conformable bunk beds I have slept on, it is so clean and tidy that you feel like you are in a 5 start hotel :) Awesome team, will go back to this one if back to Paihia again one day someday.

    The view is an obvious reason to chose this place. I appreciated having quiet time to myself, not a super social place but it’s what I needed at the time. I didn’t love the shower situation, was a block style which felt a bit institutional. The view was sweet. I wish I’d known you have to pay $5 for parking but that’s better than the only other option which is something like $45 a day. It was really clean just lacked overall atmosphere which it made up for in location. Was also super hot in room

    We had a really pleasant stay here just before New Years. A lovely atmosphere and everything we needed. It's a pretty standard hostel but the views are stunning and it is nice and open planned meaning it doesn't feel crowded.

    This is my second time staying here, again the only thing that lets it down is the rooms are very hot but the view from the common area is still fantastic as it’s so well located. Was very pleasantly surprised to find everyone had a small personal fan in each bunk which really did help with the heat :)
