I only stayed here one night, so it was good enough for what I needed. The bathroom sink were dirty. The place looks run down, but if all you need is s place to sleep then it's ok. The kitchen is fully equipped, but is disorganised..

Ok stay at Centabay
Excellent location in the center of Paihia, very easy to anywhere. A very nice property in itself, definite beach vibe. Kitchen was ok, modern and convenient. The rooms are very small, bed is just a 6 inch foam mattress with old sheets and duvet that were worn and obviously cleaned in house, smelly. The bathrooms are all outside, were always cold, and not-so-clean during my stay. The hostel is maintained by people that stay there for free accommodation, service was non-existent. I would stay again because of the excellent location, and compared to other places in Paihia the price is good, but the value you receive for the money, it's a toss up. Absolutely no frills stay.

Shower needs a good snake.
Location great! Check in and out easy. I stayed in a shared dorm style room. It was clean and bedding was fine. The only thing that took away from the experience was the extremely slow draining shower. Basically standing in dirty water and since it drained so slow, means there's dirt left from the previous bather.
