Booked into this place due to its mention in the Lonely Planet guide. Although I'll still be travelling for a while and I usually do not like to draw conclusions upfront, I’m pretty confident in saying that this is and will be the nicest hostel I will ever be staying in.
Peppertree Lodge is perfectly located, the facilities are new and extremely tidy and it offers everything you might wish for: Great and spacious kitchen and social area, free tea and coffee all day, free DVD rental, laundry, big tv, internet terminals and zenbu wireless hotspot, nice garden area including barbecue place plus a very nice owner that assists you with all questions regarding your stay, tour bookings etc..
I stayed in a 4 bed dorm with ensuite bathroom. The bed is comfy, fresh and clean linen for free, the shower works well and a heater is provided in case it gets cold at night. The atmosphere at the hostel is really friendly and sociable but at the same time, it’s a no-noise-hostel after 10.30pm and thereby ensures that you’ll get a good nights sleep. In case you feel like partying, there are several bars just across the street.
This place really is your home away from home, I would totally stay here again and definitely recommend it if I you are going to Paihia / Bay of Islands.
