We loved our stay at Captain Bob's! We stayed in the en-suite, it had a large bedroom, bathroom and kitchen area with a sink, mini-fridge and a microwave. The hostel was a short stroll to the beach and a short 10 min walk to the main wharf in Paihia town. It was in a residential area that was quiet and had very little street noise. It served all of our needs and we were happy with our stay there. We could faintly hear waves on the beach and birds in the trees when the windows were open, and it had a pleasant cross-breeze. The best part about this hostel is the kitchen. Full kitchen with all utensils, dishes, pots, and pans that you could need to cook any sort of meal. They also had a Bialetti coffeemaker!! There are several outdoor tables on the upper level off of the kitchen with amazing views of the water. We loved coming back to the hostel each night, cooking in the spacious kitchen and sitting out for al fresco dining with the amazing views. This place was very quiet for a hostel. The owner was very friendly and helpful and got us a backpackers discount for our Bay of Islands cruise. I can't recommend it enough. Oh, and they have plenty of full-size washers and dryers for getting your laundry done quickly. I checked out the hostel bathrooms when I was doing laundry and they were extremely clean.
