This is a fantastically central hostel with a welcoming feel and great facilities. We went for a week and ended up staying 8! The rooms are lovely, spacious and comfortable and the kitchen is big enough for you to be able to cook easily without tripping over one another. If heading to Paihia I would definitely recommend you make this your home away from home, whatever you do make sure you utilise the spa and free kayaks!

We had a great experience staying at Centabay Lodge backpacker's in Paihia, we would stay here again. The price, location and room were great. There was a great friendly atmosphere, we just wish we had been able to stay longer & make use of the free kayaks.

We stayed here for 3 night total in a double room.

Rooms are clean, tidy and comfortable.

Good kitchen area for cooking downstairs an the staff and owner were all friendly and accommodating.

Definitely recommend this place!

Centabay Lodge is located in absolutely prime position in Paihia. It is only one block from the ocean, the wharf, the busstation and the restaurants. The rooms are nice and clean. Jack who runs the place has a wonderful attitude and gives excellent service. He helped me a lot during my seven nights in Paihia. There are very good facilities for a budget traveller.

Lovely hostel, super close to the beach and with kayaks for free too! The guys runnning the place were fantastic , available all the time and told us the best spots to head to for kayaking and in the evening. Really friendly place, Jake was brilliant but Steve really made the stay for us, always going the extra mile. Will definitely be back!
