I just stayed 1 night, but luckly it was so quiet I've been so far. a little bit too silent. Because it might be starting low-seson. Kitchen is so clean, the view from balcony is super awesome!! Also dorm is so spacious.

First of all the charm from the very lovely and welcoming owner Mary was such a breeze after traveling out of big city Auckland. She showed us around the very cozy, well maintained and clean backpackers which had such a cool and easy going character to it. Everyone staying there had a smile on their faces and were very nice...

A really lovely hostel. Right next to the beach, sea views wherever you turn, a quick walk from the centre of town and two minutes from the supermarket; in a nice quiet area. Mary is lovely, friendly and welcoming to everyone. The hostel is exceptionally clean and well maintained, everything is thought through- the kitchen had everything you need, there... More

After making a few poor choices about backpackers in other places in New Zealand I wasn't sure what to expect from Captain Bob's, but as soon as we arrived and met Mary, the new owner, we felt so at home. The facilities were excellent, everything was clean and tidy (the sheets felt and smelt newly washed- not something you get... More

Had a lovely four night stay here. Just off the beach and only 10 minutes from the bus stop. Our dorm had a sea-view, which was lovely. Could hear the waves of a night. Kitchen was clean and spacious, always enough room for people making and eating dinner. Guy on reception was very helpful, helping us book our trips. Plenty... More

It was clean, the facilities were just right and it was very reasonably priced. I stayed in a female only room with four beds. I met some really amazing women there who made it an experience to remember. Everyone I met here seemed to understand that part of the charm of the place is how peaceful and relaxed it was.... More

My partner and I stayed at Cap'n Bob's for 2 nights. We came in peak season so the car parking was full every night. The first night we had a baby next door so no sleep in for us as the wall between our room and the next was thin. The view from the balcony of the Bay of Islands... More

Stayed for 2 nights in this guesthouse during our trip. Room was clean and comfortable and we had heating blankets to keep us warm while we sleep. You get a sea view from the balcony which is great if it is not raining. Kitchen is of a decent size. Location wise, it is walking distance to supermarket but not many... More
