This was the most "luxurious" hostel we stayed in during our three week vacation to New Zealand. It's awesome. Great rooms and common / kitchen area, great location, and everything was super clean and comfortable. Surpassed my expectations for sure.

We stayed for two nights and had such a brilliant comfortable stay in a pleasant room with very clean suroundings and fabulous views. The Pohutakawa treese were all in bloom, such a pretty sight. The staff were very kind and helpfull and we had a lovely stay. I would reccomend to everybody well worth a visit. Oh and go to... More

This backpackers is awesome. The only thing like it that I've seen on my travels so far is the Blackcurrant Backpackers in Taupo -- so, a newly converted motel with comfy single beds instead of bunks and some nicely designed flourishes throughout (like a beautiful kitchen and communal area and cute rooms) to make you feel good. You can see... More

Stayed in Double bed en-suite room, the room is spacious, bathroom was very clean. We were enjoyed to listen the wave sounds on the night,was a very enjoyable place to stay. Loved the kitchen and the kitchenware provided, had all the things we need and was very clean. Near to the Shippey's Fish n chips.

BBH is always a little dirty and noisy. But Seabeds is quite quiet and clean. Comfortable. Such a lovely place to stay in Paihia with great sea view. You can go to beach enjoying sunshine in two minutes! It's fabulous! Anyway I love it so much! If I have chance I will stay here again for a short holiday!

There's not a lot to say about this hostel because it is definitely the best hostel on the north island. It is extraordinarily clean and new and it's more a hotel than a hostel. The kitchen and the living room are very cozy and comfortable and it is easy to meet other people. Go to this place, you will not... More

Stayed there for just one night, but my dad stayed there for another week. Great place, very friendly owner. If you put the bed itself aside (which was not bad either), you could probably sell the rooms as hotel standard. The double room ensuite was very big, the bathroom clean and the common facilities were pretty new and high standard.... More

Seabeds is a lovely backpackers with great views of the sea. The lady that runs seabeds runs a tight ship. The rooms are well decorated and are immaculate, that goes for the well equipped kitchen too. There is a separate TV room to the dining room and kitchen. Had a cute little town with a ferry across to Russell.

I spent two nights here in one of the shared rooms. I can only confirm the nice reviews. Place is brand new, spotless and very well thought. Beds are incredibly comfy. Wifi is available on purchase. You can see the sea from the balcony. It is 10 min from the centre, but near supermarket and bakery. Would highly recommend it.

Seabeds knows it is good and wants to stay on the top of the list for backpackers. I stayed two nights and found the place exceeded all expectations. Clean, good room, fantastic bathroom, communal kitchen and lounge just superb all at a great price. It more than competes with any standard motel in NZ at half the price. All of... More
