Do not sleep here if you want to actually sleep at night! That's all I heard all night was the toilets going and hand dryers! I checked out after one night when I booked for 2!


Pros: sturdy bunkbeds and nice staff Cons: 30min wifi!!!! Restroom & Kitchen not very clean.


We loved our stay here. Great staff, great facilities and great location. One of the best hostel's we've been too, plus the wifi is magnificent!

On arrival the staff were friendly but we were not given much info about where our dorm was located or other facilities. The dorm room smelt of stale smoke, the bedding smelt dirty, i was on the bottom bunk and there was chewing gum and writing above me under the top bunk, there was a door missing on one of the toilets, no lamps or lockers for safe keeping in the dorm rooms, the kitchen was dirty, there were no windows in our dorm. Had to rent plates and cutlery. I would not stay here again!!!


Great location and probably best value for money for a hostel in Wellington - backpacker room had fridge and TV! Grand old building, very nice bathroom and shower, common room and kitchen facilities, nice bar, enjoyed the $3 eggs on toast breakfast deal. Top marks for facilities. Only slight negatives, not really a social hostel atmosphere and possibility a little insecure. But overall, very nice place!


A fridge in the room was great, could do to also have securable lockers. Better than average bathrooms, lots of space.


It was very easy and couldn't have asked for more really. Thanx
