Rooms were okay, we had a private bathroom which was nice. The kitchen and dining facilities were nice too, as you could enjoy your dinner outside. The wifi was very bad though, I could barely connect. The people who were there during our stay spanned from backpackers to families on vacation. The place was pretty calm and quiet, so if... More

This is a decent hostel though the internet is quite bad, useless showers if you are taller then 150cm and a very small kitchen, i would recommend you to stay at adventure bay next door. There seemed to be a lot of kids families when we where there so it is very calm if that is what you are looking... More

A below average YHA with dirty and poorly equipped facilities. During my stay there was a noisy school party and our dorm was furnace-like with heat. The other backpackers were friendly and sociable, however, and the hostel has a good location next to the beach. Not one for a stay any longer than a single night but it did look... More

The YHA piha made me remember how much of a difference the staff's willingness to help you make the most of your trip makes a difference to your overall happiness when traveling. Rarely do you meet an ownership and staff that really cares and makes sure they can help you with whatever you mite need to make the most of... More

My dad and I stayed for several nights. Great location, close to beach and shops. I'd definitely recommend a stay if you're in the area. Nice, clean facilities and Andy, the owner, is very enthusiastic and helpful.

I loved this hostel - the 8 person dorm I stayed in was clean and comfy and had nice half-bunk beds. It's quite a small hostel which is nice because you can get talking to people - plus it's a 2 minute walk to the beach and right next to all the other hostels in the town so there's plenty... More

YHA Paihia was an awesome place for me and my sister to stay when we visited Paihia, the staff were really friendly and extremely knowledgeable, had answers to all our questions :) rooms were lovely and clean and quiet too, especially since it is so close to the town center, we shared a mixed room with 5 others and had...

The only complaint I've got about this backpackers is that the 6 dorm I stayed in only had a plug socket; yet that was an ice breaker and ended up having a great time with the people I was sharing the room with. Apart from that, I loved my room, it was cosy, comfy, clean and looked quite new.The staff... More

The hostel itself is not so big and the staff is very friendly, they have got the best tips for trips and places around Paihia (and these are quite a lot). Also the hostel is close to the beach, kitchen, tv room etc are big enough and the internet works very constant. I had a great time here in Paihia!... More

A really lovely place; the staff are great - really friendly and welcoming, and the rooms are kept very clean. Wonderful atmosphere, and well located right by the beach - and all the ice cream shops of course!
