Serendipity!
I landed in Tahiti at 2100 with no hotels available under $325 per night. The Mahana Hostel had one bed left - a 6 woman dorm, upper bunk, $28 per night. I hadn’t stayed in a hostel for 35 years - and thought this one was great! It’s clean, air conditioned, quiet and right across the street from the ferry building. Wifi worked well and the staff (especially Maui) was awesome. As a result I stayed 2 more nights, the last one in a bottom bunk. My only complaint is the breakfast - it’s just bread & coffee. Other options would be nice.....fruit, cheese,

Basic Stay - Close to ferry
Stayed here after a late flight and to take an early ferry to Mo’orea. Accommodation is basic but met our needs, a bed to sleep on. Complimentary breakfast with powdered coffee, bread, butter & jams. We were able to walk over to the ferry the next morning.
