Property Description

With the best view in Paihia, the most central location and brand new facilities, Haka Lodge Paihia is a great choice! Located across the road from Paihia Beach, we get amazing views over the water, and we are close to all restaurants and bars in town.

We are a brand new, premium penthouse backpackers with an ethos that puts the customer before anything else and a team of staff that can help with your every need!

We have luxury dorm rooms for those traveling on a budget, and luxury ensuite private rooms for those travellers who like their own space on the road. Our private rooms have their own flat screen tv's and our living area is equipped with a wrap around couch to enjoy the views, as well as a large screen TV for those rainy days!

We believe in offering cheap up-market accommodation that is top-end and suitable for a range of people – which means you never know who you might meet in our large open living area, or brand new, top of the line, fully fitted out kitchen!

I was really looking forward to this stay thanks to the fabulous reviews. But unfortunately I found the rooms too small, cramped and dark. They were boiling hot and the top bunk was so difficult to get in and out of. Also there was barely any room in the top bunk. The blinds didn’t work and there was no airflow so it got very stuffy. There was mould on the blinds and my sheets had dark stains on them. Loo lock not working and no loo roll on one occasion too. Lovely staff and location though!

The location really can't be beat. I had a great stay here and especially loved the large lounge and kitchen area with full windows with views of the bay. The kitchen was very large and there was only one night where there were a lot of people fighting for space to cook during my week there, otherwise plenty of space for everyone. The rooms, at least the 4 bed dorm I stayed in and similar ones I saw, are very narrow so make sure to be considerate of your bunkmates and use the underbed lockers.

Facilities in the hostel were really good as was the location of it. Kitchen kept quiet and there is lots of equipment made available to cook. It was quite a laid back vibe during my stay and would not say it as social as other hostels from my experience.
