“really really nice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2012

I spent 4 nights at this hostel and was really happy with my decision. The whole hostel is spotlessly clean and well laid out. There is a large, well equipped kitchen with enough seating indoors and out to eat your meal. A large lounge area with widescreen tv and huge DVD collection (perfect for the rainy days) and a separate lounge area upstairs with comfy sofas if you want a bit of peace and quiet. I stayed in an 8 bedded dorm which had plenty of space and the beds were really comfortable. It was only a matter of steps to the communal bathroom which was always spotless and had plenty of showers to go round. The owners were super friendly and had time to chat and were happy to book trips and advise on the local area. Another plus about the hostel is the free sports equipment available for guests use including kayaks and bikes. I would definitely recommend this hostel

Room Tip: If staying in the 8 bed dorm ask ahead for a bottom bunk as the ceilings are quite low which make ge...

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2012

I stayed for four nights in a basic room with shared bathroom facilities. Bed was very comfy, room was easily big enough for the four people it could sleep up to. Communal facilities very good - big kitchen area, lounge, internet, seating area outside. I arrived late due to travel problems but still managed to get in my room fine. I'd stay again but probably ask for private bathroom facilities as I think these rooms are a bit further away from the communal facilities. Had a nice chat with the owner on the day of check out who was very pleasant. Close to beach with a shop almost opposite.

Room Tip: I was staying in a room right opposite the bathroom and next to the bbq area so it was going to be n...

Clean hostel but that was were the good feeling ended at this place. The host made us feel like we were putting him out from the very beginning. He charged us $20 per key which wasnt refunded at the end as he said the group damaged a mop which was at a cost of $70!! This was deducted from the credit card used to make the booking without a recipt or anything! Pretty expensive mop if you ask me! The hostel does have a bbq area which we could have easily made party central and had a few drinks but thought we had better head out to the bars instead as the owner had already threatened to kick us out for laughing on our way in with our luggage. If felt like that we couldnt even breath without being told off. For an owner of a backpackers i would have thought you would need to be welcoming and easy going but this guy was the most uptight property owner anyone of us have ever met. He then sent an abusive email to the girl who made the booking who wasnt even at the hostel saying that she or her friends were never welcome again... Who does that! Like we would want to stay here anyway. There are plenty of places to stay at in Paihia and its an amazing little place, but avoid Peppertree if you want to avoid the fun police!!

ptl-nz, Owner at Peppertree Lodge, responded to this review, 13 February 2012
Had a booking for 16, never advisec they were coming for a stag week end, arrived late and half were very intoxicated, and that was the best it got all night, the reveiw neglects to say, that one of the drunks helped him self to a cleaned room and was only found when we went to check guests in, nothing tsaid about he vomit down the upper walls, or the number of complaints we received from other guests who could not believe such drunken, foul mouthed, rude behavior. I also forgot to mention the stray women i kicked out, and was told by other guests that came back about 3am. The mops we broken by this team of louts, as part of the handle was found in one of their rooms. As i have already emailed them, they are never welcome to cast a shadow across these premise again. Funny the bars and restruant also has issues with their behavior.......... must be a paihia thing, we expect folk to act with courtesay, not like a pack of drunken louts.
