Positive Reviews

Can't beat the location

Travellers simply love this hostel's location. They say it's quite easy to get to the beach, and the ferry and bus stop are right across the street as well. Perhaps the best thing about the location is the view, which is expansive and can be enjoyed from many parts of the property.

Kind and attentive staff

Guests say that the staff at this hostel is very professional and attentive. They do a great job of making their guests feel right at home. The tours are very popular, and the staff is happy to share local tips and recommendations with the guests.

Excellent communal spaces

Reviewers really like the shared lounge and kitchen at this hostel. They find it easy to cook for themselves, and say that there are always people hanging out and making friends in the area. The sea breeze is also a big plus in these areas on hot days.

Negative Reviews

Rooms are very hot and stuffy

As with most properties in Paihia, this hostel does not offer air conditioning. Due to the amount of people staying in the dorm rooms, and their small size, guests say that the rooms are very uncomfortable. They often get hot and stuffy, and there is very little ventilation to help alleviate the situation.

Small accommodation

Guests say the rooms at this hostel are pretty noticeably below the standard size for a dormitory. The female dorms are especially crowded, with very little floor space to speak of.
