This was one of the most enjoyable places I stayed in all of New Zealand. Very clean, especially the newly-remodeled kitchen, great water views and friendly staff. Captain Bob himself was an excellent host and told a couple good tales from his days on the sea. I'll gladly return.

I enjoyed my stay at Cap'n Bob's very much. The host is very friendly and helpful with booking tours or advice on what to do in and around Paihia. The hostel was not very busy when I was there and has spacious and comfy social areas upstairs with the most beautiful views towards the Bay of islands. It's very clean...

I would recommend this hostel if you want some quiet time away from the masses for a while. It has only 20-25 person capacity so you don't run into people all the time. The beach view is really nice, and the kitchen is just as if you were at home (which means if you are 3 people cooking at the...

We spent a couple of nights here over the holiday period and really enjoyed our stay. The cleaning staff were excellent - the rooms, bathroom and kitchen were spotless. Lesley the manager was great for providing info on the area and making us feel welcome. Cap'n Bob himself was so helpful especially when we ended up with a flat car...

This is a fantastic hostel! Picture perfect location on the water front with the most amazing sunrises-get up early to see, so worth it. It's around a 15 minute walk to local supermarkets, bars etc. What really makes this place the best is Lesley, the super-friendly and helpful woman who runs it. She makes sure everything is spotlessly clean and...

This is the first ever hostel I've stayed in and it was great. Clean, warm and the staff were really friendly. The room we were in was quiet too and the manager even recommend were to go onto when we stayed in Rotorua. I couldn't have asked for a better experience to kick start my stay in NZ!
