Good location near the harbor
It was clean and friendly and a place to stay overnight before going to the airport in the morning. Taxi was called when we needed to go out.

Staff were there to greet us even though we arrived close to 10 PM. A very basic place but staff were very nice. It is really helpful if someone can speak French to communicate with the staff. We met other traveleres because there is a large common area to share breakfast. Only problem is the noise, a lot of roosters and barking dogs.

Good lodge in a poor neighborhood
Bottom Line Up Front: Ahitea Lodge is a decent place to stay if you're in Papeete for a night. If you're on Tahiti for an extended stay be warned that this place is in the middle of a bad neighborhood. I stayed at Ahitea Lodge because it was low cost and had decent reviews. The lodge itself lived up to expectations. The continental breakfast was enjoyable. It was basically half of a baguette with jam and butter, coffee, and juice. The rooms were clean and had AC, and the bed was comfortable enough. Having to use a shared bathroom was only a minor inconvenience once, but otherwise not a problem. The operators unfortunately do not speak much English. There is no place to park a rental car as far as I can tell. The neighborhood sucks. I wanted to experience Tahiti without breaking the bank. I figured I could walk around the closer parts of Papeete, enjoy whatever was nearby, and pay for excursions as necessary. The walking around part was not fun. Ahitea Lodge is buried deep in a residential zone, and the nearest intersection leading out is constantly occupied by groups of tough guys who I was later informed were "just" drug dealers. I had to leave the lodge to get food, and walking through that neighborhood made me nervous, especially with all the stares I got. I was never out after dark. When it came time to checkout I got a cab, even though the dock is only 4 blocks away. If you want to stay someplace where you are free to ramble about I recommend staying someplace else.

As was expected, this is a basic facility almost like boot camp. It’s clean and no bugs but we hear every time someone flushed toilet and I’m awake writing this review at 4 am because roosters have been crowing for an hr. Dogs were barking as I tried to sleep. Walls are indeed paper thin. There is air conditioning.

A little disappointed
Our room was pretty basic. No closet, no blankets only sheets on the beds. We were not informed that we would be sharing a bathroom that was located down the hall. The staff was very helpful and provided a continental breakfast each morning. The place was very clean, the neighborhood was a little run down but very safe.
