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.

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.

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
