“laid back and relaxing”
the Parrot is a quiet hostel plenty of shower and toilet facilities that worked well. Rose was extremely helpful and there are all the facilities that make backpackers worth staying in The location was excellent, close to the sea but away from the main drag, which helped with the peacefulness. A fun place to relax. We would stay there again.

“Beautiful surroundings, lovely hostel”
Lovely quiet location, hidden away in a quiet road and surrounded by greenery. We were only here for about 12 hours but slept really well and had a lovely reception from the owner. There's a complimentary breakfast

Feel like I have to write a review and let people know not to miss this hostel out! Can't say a bad word. Clean standards were miles better than anywhere we've been in the whole of NZ so far and I'm sure it will be the best of the whole trip. Met lots of friends, everyone is really friendly. Loved...

“Lovely, clean, friendly”
The pickled parrot is a lovely hostel, just a tiny bit outside the centre of Paihia. The hosts are the friendliest I have even had, they go around talking and getting to know everyone. There is a central BBQ and I really recommend buying some food and cooking a BBQ.
