This is one of the best hostels I have been in. The managers are overly friendly and helpful, everything is clean, the kitchen has brand-new equipment and the atmosphere is very family-friendly. The dorm rooms are very tidy and clean, unlike in many other hostels I have been in.

Very nice, didn't want to leave. Home away from home, booked 4 nights, stayed more. Travelers from all age groups, not a party hostel. Easy going vibe, guest were respectful to one another. Only good memories.

++Stayed at Cap'n Bob's for 2 nights in the studio/private room. Very clean and comfortable. So close to the ocean that you can hear it during the night. Staff were friendly and extremely helpful -- Only difficulty we had was access to wireless, which wasn't great (in a town with pretty much no free wifi spots) and made it difficult... More

It was kind of my second home! When I came to Paihia nearly one year ago I planed to spend only a few nights there and ended up with about 5 months! This hostel is really a home away from home! It has nice, clean rooms and is located so close to the ocean that you can still hear the... More

This hostel is one of the best I have stayed in - anywhere. This attractive building is a blend of perfect form and function. Lots of lounge areas and outdoor decks. The rooms are large and bright. The bathrooms (shared) are cleaned several times a day. The hostel is absolutely immaculate. This is more like a private holiday home than... More

Such a lovely welcome arriving in the Bay of Islands in the evening after finding this lovely place on Google using our mobile phone. The manageress was lovely and made us feel at home. We came to Paihia to experience the history of the Treaty of Waitangi and the location NZ's first Government.

... I felt like being at home at my grandma's place! Everything so lovely, small details made the rooms perfect and the beds were so comfy! You can hear the waves rolling on the beach and it is not far from shops or anything. A very nice place to stay and I would have loved to stay longer! :)

I spent a delightful three days here in this lovely guest house . Backpacker it may be but it really is like being a welcome guest in a charming home. Only wish I had been able to stay longer in this glorious location.

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.
