Great location
Small room with separate outdoor shower and toilet. Great location. No frills but OK.

Best backpacker choice in Paihia
Best location for any backpacker place in Paihia, right in the middle of town. Did not like separate cold outdoor restrooms. Really did not like only one power plug in a room of 7 people. The staff are just other backpacker staying there working for free accommodation, not friendly and no help. It is nice property and the location is great, I would stay again.

Good 6.0
I only stayed here one night, so it was good enough for what I needed. The bathroom sink were dirty. The place looks run down, but if all you need is s place to sleep then it's ok. The kitchen is fully equipped, but is disorganised..
