They sell it as a hotel, but it's not even a Hostel. In fact Kahina is a two rooms only built at a family's place. They claim to be a family place but they are not. The site http://www.kahinalodge.com/en/ do not translate the bad infrastructure I found there, as much as the unpolitness treatment we receved from Wallis the owner's husband and the tatoo man called Wallis http://www.wallismaoritattoo.com/. He was very very rude with me and my friends, because we did not washed the dishes we used... but we were never told we needed to wash dishes, and if he had asked politly we would have done it. But after that things just got worse, he kept being fully unpolite and made my week a nightmare. I honestly got really afraid because he seems to be a very violent man, he is not someone you should make a tattoo at all.
Besides that, the place is not clean, and I felt myself trapped the whole week. Like I paid for something and received another.
Simply is not a place to go at all!
