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

Great place to stay - Marie was awesome, gave me some coffee & sun cream, it's cheap, clean & friendly & they can sort all of your trips in Paihia (both boat trip + tour of cape reinga is a must) Shame it doesnt have free wifi... altho seems that nowhere in NZ does! Really good value

We stayed at Seabeds for two nights in January and what a lovely experience! The room and bathroom were clean, and even new looking. The kitchen/shared area was nicely decorated and very homey. We really enjoyed our stay at Seabeds and would recommend this hostel to anyone looking for a place to stay in Paihia.

We stayed here on our return trip to NZ two years after our orginal review. The same excellent accommodation but I would advise you phone to book in advance during January/Febuary as it now has a full listing in the BBH and other guides and is very popular.

Lovely clean quiet well decorated hostel with very polite and helpful staff. Excellent location just off the beach with single beds rather than bunks very modern bathroom, kitchen diner and lounge TV area. I would recommend to stay here rather than the other backpackers for those seeking a good nights sleep and something a little more relaxing than the party... More
