Woke up covered in bites
We just stayed there for one night a few days ago. The location was great, staff was friendly, and main area was nice. But i woke up covered in bites! Head to toe, small lumps everywhere. Now I didn't find them in the seams or sheets, but I am pretty sure it was bedbugs. I read that they had them a while back, but figured they had it taken care of. Guess not! Also, the place is within visual distance of Mouse Trap and a lot more expensive. Overall, I would considered another place. (despite the bites, the place was well run with a great location.)

Really enjoyed our stay at Pahia
We are a family of 4, and spent our last 3 days in New Zealand at Pahia, at Saltwater Lodge. Loved the mix of people, and all the facilities. Would recommend to others. Awesome! As you New Zealanders are always saying.

  I stayed here for four nights and thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it. The atmosphere was very friendly, with a large social kitchen/dining/lounge area inside, and a deck and barbecue as well for those who prefer the outside. The rooms were extremely clean and modern and lockers are provided. Bathrooms are also very clean and modern. Front desk is very helpful and the location is just across from the beach.

  This is the best hostel I stayed at in New Zealand (I have traveled both islands!). It is very central, clean, the staff are friendly, and the rooms are great! All rooms have their own bathroom and shower and a fridge. It is not only a very good hostel — the price is great, too! It's $23 BBH [Budget Backpacker Hostels price] for a four-bed dorm with shower, fridge and TV!!! It's just the best value for the money!

  This is a great hostel, very new and very clean. And half an hour away is Kerikeri! Go here and you'll have the time of your life!
