Situated just across from the Paihia wharf, YHA Paihia is an upmarket backpacker lodge and your home-away-from-home in the ‘Winterless North’.

Upmarket backpacker dorm rooms for those travelling on a budget, and ensuite private rooms for those travellers who like their own space and privacy. All accommodation has linen provided.

Located in central Paihia, the largest township in the Bay of Islands, with easy access to the best of town as well as unobstructed views of the shimmering waters across the Bay.

Who says affordable accommodation in the Bay of Islands means uncomfortable beds or grubby facilities? We don’t. We have hotel-quality mattresses for a great night’s sleep, privacy curtains, power points, a reading light and lockable storage. Our guests make the most of our unlimited free WiFi and spacious lounge and sparkly kitchen with top of the line facilities.
