    Paihia

    The staff were friendly and fun in the evenings but it's definitely a quiet hostel. The beds weren't the most comfy, pack mosquito spray! Plenty of bars and food places around. Super close to the beach which I loved

    A place to relax and get away

    This is in a unique and historical location. Nice and quiet location. Features outdoor jacuzzi, foot baths and movie area While kitchen is small for a criwd, the daily meals were well worth spending the money and not cooking...accommodating all types of dietary issues Nice place for some solitude

    The location was really great! I stayed in a dorm style bedroom which was overall fine but I would recommend more outlets (or more accessible outlets), as well as maybe oil up the bunk beds so they don't squeak so much. But great amenities in the kitchen!

  • 6.0.Good

    It's an easy location but loud near the main way into the town. Hotel staff are friendly but subpar cleaning. The bathroom was poorly cared for and the floor was smelly. It's okay, but there are better hostels in my opinion.
