The place was extremely alive and was obviously an attractive option for the younger group of travellers like us. The reception and staff were very friendly and nice . The only downside was the noise but I guess if anyone wants quiet they should try out the other lodges that had stricter noise control regulations. Overall good experience.

Stayed there 1 night with some friends. Overall the hostel is nice and practical. There is a kitchen, laundry, common space, tables ans benches to sit outside, etc. There is also free wifi althrough I never managed to connect. There are tennis courts (yeah!) which is really nice. The rooms are ok, not very big but generally clean although ours... More

We shared a six bedroom dorm in this hostel . All beds wrapped in aged linen. Room smelt of stale beer. One washing machine broke so a constant struggle to get clothes washed. Kitchen was always messy as were the bathrooms/shower rooms. Wear sandals or something for the showers as they are constantly filled with murky water . Pool ,... More

Possibly one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. Free wifi, very clean, great kitchen and food area etc. My room had an ensuite so I didn't experience the showers or toilets in the outside area, so I can't commit on them. Friendly staff. Would highly recommend to anyone!

We enjoyed every part of our experience with this hostel. The rooms were spacious, well-lit, clean, and colourful. The kitchen was big, with a good amount of seating area. There was netflix and a selection of DVDs available. There was also a pool, a hot tub, a BBQ, and tennis courts available for use. It was nice and quiet so... More

Great hostel, pool, hot tub, good showers, beds, kitchens, friendly staff, loved it! Couldn't have asked for more during my stay! It wasn't busy when I was there being winter time so the perfect chilled out place to stay :)

Loved this hostel, felt like luxury! Spent two nights in the ensuite room, had a small kitchen area and large ensuite room. The beds were really comfortable, good pillow and bed sheets. There is a hot tub and a well sized pool also very clean. They have a barbeque area all set up and benches outside to socialise. The kitchen... More

I had originally planned to stay in a motel in Paihia, but after seeing a great deal on GrabOne we booked a family apartment at Bay Adventurerer. It proved to be a great decision. The apartment was clean, spacious, large and perfectly adequate for our needs - and it was significantly cheaper than any of the motels I checked.It's well... More

When calling late afternoon of that day, the staff member was friendly and accommodating. As requested,... More
