This hostel was quite quiet and in a good, central location. Cleab restrooms and dorms. Good value for money and the staff were helpful and recommended some good activities.

Close to Te Papa. Very close to big supermarket. Loads of places to eat, cinemas and theatres within short walking distance.

Please remove the promise of a shuttle to the train station, since this does not happen any more. It's one (of many) reasons I booked this hostel, and I was disappointed to find out it was false. Also, the kitchen is a little bit small for so many people, especially since staff also use it. Otherwise, I was very impressed with the hostel's organization.

Good hostel close to city centre. Staff is friendly and happy to help including contacting taxis to take you to airport. Rooms are comfortable, good size, with big lockers big enough for a backpack and plugs inside the locker so you can left your mobile charging and leave the room as it is safe. Lifts are quite quick and reliable. Wellington is a nice city, dont miss a free visit to the parliament

Best location you can get. Clean, quiet, free wifi, well equipped kitchen, two elevators, nice view. Lot of activities to choose from. One of the best hostels.

First YHA I've stayed at where they won't store your luggage at checkout. Disappointing. Good stay otherwise.

Would suit large groups and parties

One of the best. Spacious rooms; helpful staff; perfect location; plentiful and clean facilities; large well-equipped kitchens; reliable, free Wi-Fi; good atmosphere. No weaknesses, good throughout. Would thoroughly recommend. Give the Welsh Dragon bar opposite the hostel a visit and ask for the rarebit - exceptional!

Hands down, the best Hostel I have stayed at throughout all of my travels, and I have been around Australia, NZ, Korea, England, France, Germany, Italy, and the U.S.

I stayed in a private room - second time here. I though everything was at a very good standard except my room was very warm during the day and it was difficult to air out. Common areas could do with a little more lounge space in the evenings

Nice big YHA, wifi was free but patchy, lots of facilities and two big kitchens. New World across the road and 5 mins from Te Papa museum

awesome location. not super young backpacker friendly though, a quieter atmosphere.

I was a little apprehensive about staying here expecting to find many young party goers but I was pleasantly surprised to find a really good mix of people who were very respectful. The hostel is very big but well maintained excellent security, lockers in rooms and helpful staff. The hostel has day and night cleaners so the hostel is always well maintained and 2 spacious kitchens and a recycling system.

Good central position though a little expensive. Only criticisum was noise, great play is made of YHA's green credentials but this means an enormous fan tower directly outside top floor windows making a loud hum 24 hours a day.

Got a room to myself. Clean and all good. Room was very hot and YHA isn't much fun if your looking to party

Great location, clean room, free wifi and friendly staff. A minor downside was that the room got really hot.
