We spent our first night in Papeete in the mixed dorm room (facing the rising sun). First impressions were not good. There were 3 bunk beds and one attic type bed up a ladder and the room felt old and grimey. One the plus side we had it to ourselves and there was hot water. The ac was not working and no fan provided which left for a hot restless night. The room became unbearable as the sun rose, luckily we were leaving early. We did return 10 days later after travelling through the islands, this time we opted to spend more and take a double private room. The first room - no.20 - was huge and had ac/tv/fridge. We were moved the next night as this room was booked to a smaller but still homey room - no 13 - with ac/fridge/tv and a large closed bathroom. Both of the double rooms were clean and well maintained and cost $75 per night as opposed to $27 pp in the dorm. The kitchen facilities were adequate but the communal area at the front is a little dreary and a mossie haunt. I would stay again in a double room, but do not reccommend the dorm room unless there is a paint job/spruce up. The owners were helpful and friendly and did store our gear for a reasonable fee while we visited the other islands.
