    Good hostel in the heart of Papette

    This hostel is very clean, secure, comfortable, with air condition excellent for good night of sleep, very helpful staff and friendly (t will organized hey, located at 2 blocks of the Papeete Market and 1 block of the port if you are taking a cruise and roulettes, within walking distance to attractions. The location is very good and it is the only hostel in downtown.

    We checked in at 6:00 am. They got us to our tiny room quickly. Breakfast was bread and coffee. Lovely paintings all over the walls. Perfect location for us to walk to our cruise ship.

    Good for budget and convenience

    Very convenient to waterfront and downtown marketplace. Room was very spartan, no window, but simple and clean. Front desk was very friendly and accommodating. We would return for convenience and affordability. Shuttle to airport was fairly priced (divided among travelers) and on time which we appreciated.

  • 8.0.Very good

    It was a first time adventure in a place like this. It was a great surprise. We were basically using this lodge for cleaning up after an 8 hour safari excursion across Tahiti, and before flying back to Orlando, FL later in the evening. The restroom/shower was shared, but the double room was private. The restroom/shower did have privacy, just not attached to room, but nearby. Everyone, including other guests were very respectable! Would definitely stay again, maybe even sleep! A/C worked excellent in the room, and the price was right!
