Kitchen was small and lacked a working microwave and kettle without a sign up. Boiling water heater didn't work either. Lack of pans and plates etc. We did arrive on Halloween... More

Really liked this place to stay! A lot of the people staying here for a long time and also work in the hostel. Every room has it's own entrance and there is a lot of space to sit with eachother and meet people. There is a Pool and hottub which is really nice. The atmosphere here is awesome.

This hostel used to be a good hostel , but a new management change everything, that amazing and friendly place is now a desert without smile and laught. The only thing than i can say you it's don't go to that place. It's enough hostel in that small town for don't spend time there

We were driving late from Cape Reinga to Paihia but staff were so patient in waiting for us at 11pm. We booked a studio type of accommodation. It was indeed very spacious for 4 persons.

We stayed a couple of nights in a lovely studio room. Room was spacious and clean and was a very good price. Staff were friendly and gave us some good local recommendations on where to eat. Hot pool was a bonus! Will be back again
