Haka lodge paihia
The lodge itself is in an amazing location, The staff were exceptionally friendly and knowledgable in their advice re trips, the rooms were comfortable and the privacy curtain was a nice touch, shower room was amazing clean and bright, kitchen was also spotless with three areas to cook and the view from the dining table was amazing - It Would have easily rivalled what you could have got from a 5star hotel - all in all very enjoyable experience and I look forward to staying on another Haka lodge

That View Though .....
It is worth it just for the views!! Great wooden bunks which are really comfortable. Each comes with a privacy curtain, light and socket. Although in my bed, the light and socket were at the opposite end to the pillow. Big kitchen and lounge area, with plenty of space to cook and eat. Really good wifi in the common area, but not so good in my room, at least. Bath and shower rooms were clean, although two of the showers were out of order when I was there (and one is reserved just for staff). Centrally located, with a supermarket just a couple of minutes walk away and plenty of choices to eat if you don't want to cook.

Hostel with a view
The Haka Lodge was great- close to everything in town, clean, comfy beds, with a big kitchen and common area. People were courteous about the quiet areas and about cleaning up after themselves. My top bunk was a little cramped but it was nice having a personal light and shelf, a privacy curtain, and a locker under the bed. I would definitely stay again!
