Gute Unterkunft
Die Unterkunft in Toni's Guesthous kann auf jeden Fall weiter empfohlen werden, das Personal ist sehr höflich und hilfsbereit, natürlich auch Toni selber. Die Zimmer sind sauber und ordentlich und der Preis ist angemessen. Auch der Shuttlesservice funktioniert sehr gut.

Depends what you are looking for and where you stay
Toni's is a large, clean, cheap, friendly guesthouse full of like minded travelers of all ages. We stayed in the blue house where we had full kitchen facilities, television, and private or shared bedrooms. Toni himself is a mystery, some days ridiculously friendly but others not so much! The location is good for getting into town and those who don't like walking can get the guest house shuttle bus for just a dollar a trip. One of the highlights of this guesthouse is that tours of the island can be arranged through Toni and trips to the cultural show are also commonplace.

It's an excellent place to stay!
We traveled around Tongatapu and Ha'apai for more than four months and this is definitely the cleanest and best budget place we have seen. Yes, there are insects in Tonga, but they are everywhere. But Toni's is the only place we've seen where e.g. the mattress and pillows are put into the sun regularly to prevent bedbugs. It wasn't a problem for us that the guesthouse is not "downtown" since you can get a lift in and out of town anytime for 1 Pa'anga. It wasn't a problem for us to get to talk to the staff in English either. We can only recommend the place. In total, we spent almost four weeks at Toni's guesthouse.

An Experience!
This is a funny place. A mate and I stayed here for a couple of nights when we arrived in Tonga to go surfing in 2005. The worst thing is that it is in the middle of a village that is miles away from anything! It is nowhere near a beach and is fifteen-minute drive from the town centre (although there isn't a lot happening there either!). But, having said that, it's cheap and is probably most appropriate for your first night in Tonga, just to figure out what you want to do and where to go (be forewarned, however: nothing ever goes to plan in Tonga!). Toni is an interesting fellow from Manchester who has lived in Tonga for God knows how long! He has a very dry sense of humour, can seem abrupt at times but, all in all, just seems a little tired of having people stay with him and showing them around. For what the place costs, I suppose it is adequate -- although the kitchen has only very basic facilities (no toaster, no can-opener). Do not stay any more than one or two nights here or you will be absolutely bored out of your brains!

Just awful
The room was in a disgusting state. The linen was all stained with holes in, the mattresses were like wood, and it stunk. The shower was like standing under a drip, and it seems you share the shower room with half the countries insects. On the topic, there were cockroaches in the room along with millions of mosquitoes. Other than Toni, the staff cannot speak good English, which can be a little confusing when telling them where and when to pick you up from the town. One or two of the staff are particularly unfriendly and Toni himself is not exactly a ray of sunshine. He made it seem as if I was more of a bother than a customer. The tour of the island that Toni offers is poor but it's something to do. The main event seemed to be the three-headed coconut tree -- that says it all! Overall it was a very unenjoyable stay yet I don't think there will be anywhere else to stay in Tonga that's much better.

  This place is very different from what you might be used to, but I have given it 4 stars because, for Tonga, it is good. It's very friendly, laid back and helpful. I loved it and would stay there again for sure. The bedrooms are small and have fans. There is a kitchen, and they will drive you places nearby if you pay.
