Paihia. Northland.

Not much to say actually.

It's kinda hard recalling things from last year.

We stayed at the Pipi Patch backpackers which was actually pretty neat, loads of people everywhere cause it has a club attached to it. To be honest this was my first hostel experience and I didn't know what I was in for. I guess …

So we've only just managed to get onto a computer again and I have 20 mins before our bus leaves so it will be a quick update!

We are currently back in Auckland waiting for the KIWI bus down to Thames, Cathedral Cove and Hot Water Beach (starting to head south down NZ).

Friday we had a lovely day exploring Auckland, went on a …

After hearing nothing but great thing about this country. I was more then excited to visit. With the kiwi experience bus all booked, visiting both the north and the south, surprisingly I was ready to say goodbye to the beautiful Islands of Fiji. Feeling both privileged that I got the chance to visit such a gorgeous country with islands of paradise …

Strandvejen og den døde kiwi

Så blev det tid til at forlade Auckland. Jeg var booket til afgang onsdag morgen klokken 7:10 med en af Kiwi Experiences grønne busser, og jeg var hverken halvt eller helt vågen, da vi gjorde dagens første stop. Men jeg fik spærret øjnene op, da jeg så, hvor vi kørte ind – Sheepworld. Jep, det er rigtigt. Sheepworld! Men hvis ikke i New …

    Good nightlife, loads of tourists, nice people. Rooms had en-suites which was good and they put on bbqs at night for super cheap which comes with a beer so can't complain.

    Cheap through a good deal with "stray"-bus. Clean and nice. Never spent much time in there though. Always out exploring the region. So don't know about kitchen facilities or lounge area. Pool and spa at hostel. Internet available at cost. Very helpful staff.
    I'd go back if I'm ever in Paihia again.

    Base is known for being the place where a younger crowd gets rowdy, so I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived to find it was a pretty laid back kind of place.

    The facilities are good and clean, with little mini kitchen areas in the rooms and en suite bathrooms in all the dorms which is always a good thing. The pool and hot tub also looked clean but I didnt use them.

    Staff were friendly and the on site bar was very good value, as was the $12 bbq they put on each night.

    I would stay here again, but if you are looking for a quiet hostel this is probably not the best choice... the best part about this hostel is the fact you can walk to the beach in less than 2 minutes :)
