We did not open the window cause McD is right beside and all the oil smell came in, but then the room became so hot, ventilation not good enough. Far from cuba st but really liked how it was closed to the bus stop. Staff was helpful

Was a great hostel close to the Westpack Stadium and close to the ferry terminal. Bummer they didn't have any parking for their guests


Good location, acceptable price, clean rooms. Perfect for staying for one nigth or longer.

Very nice and clean. Super close to bus train and ferry. Only about 5 min to the city center. Would stay there again.


i did nt like the kitchen, specially on morning with greasy noodles smell


Rooms quite dank, but excellent location. Seemed to be a friendly atmosphere, but only stayed one night. Would recommend based on close proximity to train station


Hostel was functional but we really hated the bunk beds that we got in our private ensuite room. It had the equipments necessary for a night's stay in Wellington however, I wouldn't recommend a longer stay at the place.


For an older building, these guys do an amazing job of keeping it clean and welcoming. It was incredible watching the staff clean up each day - and I wondered - why is it that guests couldn't do this for themselves??? Great staff - disappointing guests.
