Great location in Paihai, easy walking to the town. Beautiful views across the ocean. Friendly and helpful staff. Clean place with good atmosphere and good facilities. The quiet policy after 11 pm is great for a good nights sleep. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting the area.
Wonderful -- Highly recommended.
I booked a double room for three nights initially but stayed an extra two. The hostel was full but the lovely owners (Jake and Nikki) gave us the option of a room in a gorgeous house they rent out a few minutes up the road. The facilities in the hostel itself are top notch. Very warm, welcoming, homey environment with all that you need. Perfect location and great rates.
It is emphasized when you arrive that this is a quiet hostel, not a party hostel and this is reinforced at 11 p.m. each night, perhaps a little too much. The balconies and lounges are nice, but the kitchens are small. The bathrooms need renovated, the toilet cubicles are very small and there is a lot of space wasted in the room with the hand-basins. The sign requesting quick showers wasn't appreciated, especially as the shower-rooms did not encourage lengthy showers. All tours can be booked at reception and there were several computers. There are nice outdoor areas.
Best place we stayed in a yearlong trip! Minimal rules, quiet areas and not so quiet areas, barbecues, and friendly staff. I would give this place 6 stars!!
I had the best time of my life here. You can party if you want to, or relax if you want to. There are great people here, and lots of stuff to do. The skydiving is excellent.
This is a great place to bum around. It has nice people, and it's very cozy.
A lovely quaint hostel. This place has really friendly owners, it's close to a dairy and bars, and it's within walking distance to town and all the water activities. There's a nice beach just down the road. The balcony overlooks the Pacific. It has good services, and it's very clean.
Real homely hostel - lots of plants, sea views minutes away from everything - came here to do the Rock Overnight cruise - superb.
