"– a touch of luxury" Lonely Planet Guide 2005


Cap'N Bob's Budget Backpackers is a great spot for those people who want to thoroughly experience and enjoy Paihia.

Our hostel has a breath-taking view out over the bay and is close to Waitangi for those wishing to experience the birthplace and culture of New Zealand first hand.

We are a community hostel and have delightful, sun-filled common areas with wonderful views out over the island in the Bay and a large upstairs verandah so guests can dine overlooking the sparkling seas. A great place to meet other travellers we pride ourselves on our peaceful and relaxing atmosphere which comes from our easy-going spirit.

With great budget prices we have plenty of dorms and rooms available for backpackers as well as a self-contained studio unit for those who want a more intimate setting.
