Everything was great. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Also centrally located, easily walk-able around town.

A little gem in the heart of Paihia
Though it is described as a backpackers, Haka Lodge is much more then that. We are a couple in our 60s and, as we often travel for months at a time, we use hostels quite a bit to keep costs down. At Haka Lodge we had a fabulous private double room with better en suite than you see in a many hotels. The kitchen/lounge, being on the second floor of the building and at the front, gives incredible views across the Bay of Islands. When we were there (June ie winter) there was a special offer of free breakfast (cereals and toast). Definitely worth a stay and excellent value for money.

Haka lodge is very clean, comfortable and relaxing hostel. I enjoyed my stay there overall. The beds were comfortable, the bathroom and showers were very clean and the living room is huge with a great view. My only criticism is that the rooms are quite small and that the front desk closes at night. There were a few occasions when it needed to ask the front desk something, but they were not around. For example I needed a towel to shower at night, but didn't think to ask before they were closed, so I had to use my small hand towel. Overall I would recommend this hostel.
