We have a large amount of connected dorms so groups can always be kept together and while there enjoy our hostel where all the dorms have ensuites. Visit the world famous Pipi Patch Bar and partake in our nightly BBQ. Plenty of parking is available and the kitchen opens in time for early breakfasts and departures if necessary.

Base Bay of Islands is the epicenter of the backpackers accommodation in Paihia, close to the beach and shops and is the number one party spot so everything you need is literally a stroll away. Also being a quick walk back from a great night out here has always been a fan favorite.
