Great location. Hotel like feel. I got the squeekiest bed ever which woke me up during the night! Minor but it did impact on me.

It was the perfect location - convenient to public transportation, nightlife, and all of the touristy sites. The staff are all super friendly and up for a chat or recommendations for a real insider's take on the city. I would definitely recommend this place.

Great location, decently sized rooms, clean. Only one common room/kitchen and the room was pretty small. Good price.

Good location, good people.

The staff were absolutely amazing, and instantly make you feel welcome and taken care of. Rooms were of decent size and were clean, and the bathrooms were really looked after (having recently been renovated by the looks of it). Have to pay for Wi-Fi however (which in 2014 is a bit sad...), and the common area was tiny. Great place overall though!

Very nearly very good! Could do with a bit of simple maintenance, such as making sure that blinds and windows open / close properly. Good location, reasonable facilities. Wifi is expensive, after the free 30 minutes.

Good hostel, although it was noisy due to the bars around the area.

Had a great night's stay here. Reception are open 24 hours (rare for NZ) and were very friendly and helpful. Great location. Not noisy even though it was friday night. Had a problem with water temperature in the showers. Stored luggage for free unlike Base. Would definitely stay again.

For a hotel I would have expected this place to be cleaner, the backpacker area appeared somewhat neglected. There is a bar nearby and all evening I had groups of people gathered outside the single glazed bedroom window, hearing their conversations word for word (even with earplugs in, drunk people are loud)! Not keen on the deposit for crockery, if I only need a bowl I shouldn't have to carry around two plates a cup and cutlery.

A great hostel that is centrally located. The four-bed dorm I stayed in was spacious with good beds, bedding and even a heater. They could do with some lockers in the rooms for valuables. Plenty of bathroom and shower facilities that are kept clean. Many of the hostels in Welly are hovels, this one would be my first choice when in Welly next.

I really enjoyed my stay, the staff were very helpful and friendly. The location was really great, but the walls are a bit thin and noise does carry.

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.
