    Lovely cosy hostel a 1 min walk to the beach. Free use of kayaks is a massive bonus, great to paddle around the bay on, or even take up the river to Haruru water fall.

    Sehr schönes kleines Hostel. Sehr gemütlich. Die Zimmer sind recht groß und die Betten bequem. Ich war Anfang April da und es war sehr wenig los. Die Küche ist ausreichend groß und man konnte in Ruhe kochen. Von der Lage her super. Sehr zentral und trotzdem ruhig. Ich würde das hostel immer wieder buchen. Einziger Nachteil: kein kostenloses WLAN.

    Stayed for 1 night and it was a nice clean hostel. Nothing special about it really and had to pay for Wi-Fi but wasn't bad either

    Great value - good facilities, free kayaks, only missing the wifi. Another downside were some 10yo kids always fighting and making noise.

    I have paid the room fee online but they still charged me extra money on arrival. I did not pay the child fee that was my fault but it still have more than $ 80 which was not the child fee.

    Extremely rude and unhelpful member of staff upon checking in who did not give us any details of the hostel or information about the surrounding area. Bathroom in the dorm was not clean, poor water flow out of the shower and extremely basic! Shame as the town of Paihia is wonderful

    Much the social atmosphere of a wet towel that has been left to develop a pungent smell. The all-night techno music from the other side of the street can be fully enjoyed, unencumbered by the thin dorm window. Entire dorm had one electrical outlet, over which wars were fought between the restless natives. You have to pay for wifi, much as if the hostel were an airplane. Even the other places on the street are nicer.
