Wonderfull stay and good location. The units are very tidy and spacious. The extras and special offers that you can get by staying at the Peppertree are great. Bryan is very friendly and has excellent knowledge about the area.

Stay here for the backpacker amenities. Seems like they've thought of everything to make this place a self sufficient hostel. Complete with BBQ, common room with available DVDs, books, kitchen, laundry, bikes, etc. Had a 3 bed room with ensuite. Relatively clean, but very very old linens, beds, furniture, and sheets. Could use some bug traps and/or screens. Quite reflective... More

Rob, spent the last few days trying to find out when you stayed, but had no luck. I am surprised in regard to two comments, the first is cleaning, we spend an enormous amount of time ensureing the place is spic and span, so was really quite disappointed in regard to this, means we will need to put extra effort...

I've stayed at Pepper Tree a few times, in the dorms and in a private room, and I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Paihia. Very clean and well maintained, good communal space including a big outdoor eating area with BBQs. The owners are fantastic, Bryan is hilarious and has great local knowledge. Can't fault it, already looking forward to going... More
