This was a pretty cool hostel to stay though their hot tub was never exactly hot. They had fun BBQ's every night when a new bus rolled in with tons of food for only $10NZD per person. The rooms were nice and clean though on the small side but it did give us a great chance to getting to know our fellow Kiwi Bus travellers.

Also next door to an amazing Cafe with what my travel buddy would say have the best BLT's in the world....

Pipi Patch is a real cutie with friendly staff and this cool BBQ every night (for $10 you get a great feed, steak, sausies, salad and a beer).
They have a spa pool and a swimming pool, after a big day out in the bay the spa is the perfect way to warm up!
The Pipi Patch Bar is the nicest place for a relaxed beer in Paihia (some are ot so nice)... anyway long story short went up for 2 days, ended up staying a week and had a great time, what a gorgeous town!
