This was a great place to stay! Loved it! The hotel is very well situated , just round the corner from Courtney Place near shops, cafes and bus routes. The staff were very friendly on arrival and the 3 bedroomed room with en-suite was spacious, comfortable and clean. Good sized TV with tea/coffee making facilities. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and look forward to doing so.

Great location in the heart of Wellington, rooms and beds are a bit past their prime but the proximity to Wellington's finest cafes, restaurants and nightlife ensures you'll have no reason to stay in your room. Extremely friendly staff and the bar at Cambridge is a great place for a quiet beer after a day's exploration.

This hostel is just a small part of a hotel, which means that it somewhat lacks the atmosphere hostels are generally known for. There was a problem with one of the windows in my room, which combined with the rather turbulent Wellington weather made a lot of noise during the last night, making it difficult to sleep.

Their dorms are quite spacious and the atmosphere is just great. Definitely a recommendable place to stay :-)

Great place to stay, awesome atmosphere and great central location. Only downside you have to rent utensils and quite noisy at night from base hostel next door but overall I would defiantly recommend this hostel.

It would have been excellent apart from the 6 bed dorm I was put in stank of urine, we think from a pile of dirty clothes at the end of one of the beds. When I complained the very kind lady on the front desk moved my girlfriend and I to a twin room for a charge of $20 which was amazing and out of the way of the smelly backpackers. It is not the hotels fault that some backpackers haven't grasped the idea of personal hygiene or the small invention of washing machines and soap!!

I had a great stay here. The staff at reception was very kind and welcoming. The location is great! And so is the atmosphere. Everybody was very friendly and I met only nice people. The facilities are good, very comfortable beds, lots of bathrooms and toilets, a cozy kitchen and lounge area (not the cleanest). I would definitely stay here again. At the opposite of the street is the Embassy Theater, go see a movie there! :) Oh.. and they offer a nice breakfast for $3 in the hotel pub/restaurant.

Everything was excellent apart from the under-sized common area and kitchen. Other than that I would definitely recommend this hostel!

Not too bad a place. Rooms were nice and big beds were comfortable enough. The colour scheme meant it seemed quite dark a lot of the time, which could make some people sleepy. Works if that's all you need it for. The kitchen and "lounge" were far too small for the amount of people you can have staying there. In fact I had to wait til the crowds had died down before I could make myself a meal. The tea towels could do with being replaced a little more often.
