A party hostel, which is fine if you are happy being kept awake till the early hours by music and drunks. The rooms were basic with clean bedding. There was a flood in to the sleeping area from the bathroom when we arrived - we reported it to the guy cleaning but no one turned up to sort it out so it was left to stink out the room. We stayed in two different dorm rooms, and couldn't turn off the water taps properly in either room - a bit ironic when there are signs up asking guests to conserve water. Staff were helpful, and friendly enough. The swimming pool didn't look like it had been cleaned out for a few weeks.
There are probably better places to stay in Paihia if you want to sleep.
