“Good option for Papeete”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

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.

Room Tip: Room 13 or 20 - double ensuite private

If you do not want to spend a lot of money, this is definitely the best deal. My friend and I stayed in the women's dorm. The dorm apparently has 2 permanent residents, one of which has insomnia and Is up and down (it seems) all night long. She also turns the light on in your face.

The staff is helpful, although English is somewhat limited at times and will do whatever they can to help you. The owners' daughter is very fluent in English. I am from Fla. so roaches would not bother me and I did not see any. I will be back to Teamo with my next visit.

Room Tip: The individual rooms are not very expensive and would be best for a couple or family.

Not too friendly place and the room is very small for that price you expect definitely better conditions.

It is probably indeed the cheapest place to stay in Papeete. But it is also the dirtiest and with the most unfriendly staff!
First: The dorm was stinking when I got there. The staff member said it was probably from some rotten food lying somewhere behind the fridge. I thought: "well I can live with that." and went to take a shower.

Second: As I got back from the shower and start to unpack my things, I see a cockroach crawling next to my pilow. I scream and then see another one walking around the room, and another one walking on the wall.... The other guests said they had gotten used to it already!!! I went to the reception to complain about the roaches, but they said that there was nothing they could do about it, and if it was a problem to me, I was free to go...

Of course I left. And they charged me 6 euros for the shower.

I will never stay in that place again.

We really had very little interest in Papeete, after having spent time in the Marquesas and Tuamotus, but had to overnight here twice for flight connections. Teamo Hostel turned out to be an excellent choice, in terms of cost, convenience, and quiet. It is an easy walk to the public market and waterfront, and the owners are amiable and helpful. They will help with airport pickup/delivery, at a rate comparable to the taxis. They also have a secured luggage storage, which made it easy to do an overnight to Moorea on the ferry, unencumbered by bags.

Room Tip: The best room, if available, is #12 upstairs.
