"We are a premium penthouse backpackers located in central Paihia, the largest township in the Bay of Islands, with amazing views and an ethos that puts the customer before anything else. We have new kitchens, bathrooms, living areas and bedrooms (in fact, the whole place is new!) and everything is top of the line in quality.
Our bunk beds already have a reputation at our 4 other lodges for being comfortable and unique – they are wooden beds that each have their own power outlet, reading light, privacy curtain and lockable storage area under the bunk.
Our private rooms feature flat-screen TVs, a seating area and quirky designs that we’re sure you’re going to love. Everything about the hostel is geared towards our customers having the best stay – flat screen TVs, free unlimited WiFi, free tea and coffee and much more.
We also offer female-only dorms when requested and go the extra mile to make this a comfortable location for all of our customers.
Great Location – Walking distance from the bus stop, 1 minute from the ferry terminal and situated right above the town – we are right in the heart of Paihia.
Best views in town – Located on Marsden Road, opposite the wharf and looking out over the sparkling water of the Bay of Islands.
Free Unlimited WiFi – While you’re browsing, why not like Haka Lodge on social media?
Brand new hostel with brand new equipment – Everything we have is custom built or bought especially for this hostel.
Quirky Bunk Beds – Featuring privacy curtains, power points, a reading light and lockable storage.
Hotel Quality Mattresses – Who says cheap accommodation on the Bay of Islands has to mean uncomfortable beds? We don’t. We have hotel-quality mattresses for a great nights sleep.
Eco-friendly – We recycle everything we can, with the help of our guests, and we are currently looking into some eco-friendly cleaning solutions to do our part in cleaning up the planet!"
