Bay of Islands Hotels: 7 reviews and 5 photos
For the budget conscious, backpackers are the best bet. Most of the hostels are in the main town of the Bay of Islands - Paihia. In 2004 I stayed in the Saltwater Lodge (a five star bakpackers) in that town (see my Paihia page). However, on King Street, there are lots of other backpackers. Lodge 11, is the YHA/HI one and another highly recommended one is Peppertree Lodge, which I stayed at in 2006. Pipi Patch has a swimming pool. There are two main bars on King Street in front of Pipi Patch and Saltwater Lodge. Both are fine spots for a cold beer at night and usually have music (live sometimes) and Saltwater Cafe has karaoke on some nights (grimace).
Address: Check out King Street and MacMurray Road.
Comparison: least expensive
Price: less than US$20
