"Good:Super location at entry to Paihia. Short walk to beach. Close to Alfresco possibly one of the better Paihia Cafes. Bad: Motel unit was old but clean with renovated bathroom. No kitchen bench/sink; tiny TV. The worst of it was the incredibly loud pub/backpackers over the back fence with a band and outdoor yelling area that went till 3am on Friday night and nearly the same on Saturday night. Not a relaxing sleep-filled stay!!! Would not stay there again. I need my sleep!"

"Great find and a little bit away from the hustle and bustle of the main strip of Paihia but still easily accessible by walking or car. Great views of the ocean; we had a poolside studio that was well appointed and had comfortable beds to sleep in. Also had a mini kitchenette area that was great to utilise. Poolside studio can get a little noisy when children are running about but manageable. A little on the expensive side especially during peak holiday times."

"This is the hostel to stay when you're in Paihia. It's the best location, pretty much next to bus stop, across ferry and in between the shops. The facilities are good (nice/big kitchen, good lounge,). Bathroom is clean and has enough space. Everything is new which is nice. The bed (I stayed in a shared dorm for 4) was good too. Good matrass, light and socket and a curtain for privacy wich I think is really nice. I would definitely recommend this place. There wasn't anything I didn't like."

"My husband and I stayed at Aloha for 3 nights and were very happy with everything. Its grounds are spacious and full of amenities. I commented to my partner that it would be a great place to bring children since they would be easily entertained. The furniture in the room was a bit out of style but functional and clean. It was a great value for all its perks. We had a lovely stay and highly recommend it to anyone visiting Paihia, as it was a quick and pleasant walk into town."
