I have tried to book in this place 3 times... but unfortunately, it was full twice, and I had the chance to be there for 2 nights... among 4 different hostels in Tahiti island, this was the best place so far.
The owner is a great surfer with an international experience, so the place has different influences from all over the world...They got wifi and airport transfer and hips of advise. Just for orientation, when you get off the bus on the stop "kilometre 18", take the first right next to shop.

Room Tip: the dorms are clean and spacious

Nice place with excellent hosts Ralph and Diane. It's a great place for the price and location. Not too far / far enough from town and swimming, snorkelling and kayaking right off the beach next to the lodge. Good place to get your bearings and plan your trip too. They will help you out and you can store some stuff with them too.

Really good location, far enough away from the busy-ness of Pape'ete but close enough to make traveling to/from the airport or ferry very easy. Ralph and his wife were great hosts who would help you out with many requests. Ralph was able to help me rent a car for the days I was there and gave me good advise as far as beaches, hiking trails and places to eat. There is a small bodega a short walk down the road and a larger grocery story a couple of miles further. It made the stay much cheaper as restaurants will be expensive in Tahiti. There is also 2 decent places a short walk away for pizza and burgers.

The lagoon was really nice, great for snorkeling and kayaking. There is a wonderful place to sit just above the beach, on their property, for relaxing and sunsets. I highly recommend staying here if you're looking for a relaxing and inexpensive place to hang out.

We stayed in one of the bungalows for 5 nights. It is right at the beach and free use of kayaks and snorkeling gear. Beautiful view of Moorea and sunsets. Ralph was helpful with info for the area. Always had a fresh baguette every morning on the front table. Very chilled place, hosts leave you be and give you your space. Great dog and bunny for pets. Beautiful flowers, lots of birds in the trees and good location. Wi-fi for a small fee compared to how much it cost on the island. Definately plan to stay here again!!

If you go to Tahiti Island and want to stay near Papette but next to the beach on a laid back place, this is the place to stay!
I had a wonderful experience there! The hosts are a friendly and helpful couple. The dorm was clean, very spacious and had a wonderful view of the lagoon and small beach in front of the hostel. The bathroom and outdoor kitchen were always very clean and tidy.

Very nice overall laid back atomosphere... I recommend!
