“Do not stay at Kahina!!!!”
Reviewed 10 July 2013

They sell it as a hotel, but it's not even a Hostel. In fact Kahina is a two rooms only built at a family's place. They claim to be a family place but they are not. The site http://www.kahinalodge.com/en/ do not translate the bad infrastructure I found there, as much as the unpolitness treatment we receved from Wallis the owner's husband and the tatoo man called Wallis http://www.wallismaoritattoo.com/. He was very very rude with me and my friends, because we did not washed the dishes we used... but we were never told we needed to wash dishes, and if he had asked politly we would have done it. But after that things just got worse, he kept being fully unpolite and made my week a nightmare. I honestly got really afraid because he seems to be a very violent man, he is not someone you should make a tattoo at all.

Besides that, the place is not clean, and I felt myself trapped the whole week. Like I paid for something and received another.

Simply is not a place to go at all!

I just want to add some missing information to this post. I'm the owner and for healthy reasons i wasn't at the hostel when this happen.
The name of my place is KAHINA LODGE so i never sold it as a Hotel.(As shown in tripadvisor) the agency that sell the Lodge add on our description..."if you want to get the courtesy transfer contact the hotel".. but i already ask them to delete this because some people may think we are a Hotel.
Even with two rooms we are a Lodge or Hostel if you prefer, we are family size and i think that's what people like,if you read the old comments on tripadvisor ,they like to feel like they are at home with us .
I don't understand why did you find bad structure.We have two big rooms, with big bathroom,bathtube, towels, a large room where you can have breakfast, wi-fi,and a lot of information about the island,and the kitchen.And since two months we have a housekeeping,so everything here is clean.
If you find bugs is normal we are on an island not in the city,even the luxurious hotel here have bugs.
And for the dishes, in every hostel you must wash your dishes except for the breakfast, we serve it and wash it but for the rest we always told you when you arrived that if you use anything you must keept it clean.
And about my husband he told you politely the second day to wash your glasses after he washed them,the third day he ask you to wash your plates glasses and forks but you didn't and is at the third time that you answer unpolitely to him and to our housekeeper,so i don't understand why he was unpolite towards you.

A nice place where to stay ( quite one week there). Simplicity and friendship . Impression to be part of the family. The plce is quiet and well located on the main street but without the noise.
