If you're looking for a very central and convenient place, YHA is perfect! You will find everything you may need there, except maybe good heating in winter. It is a very impersonal backpackers where you will feel relatively comfortable but where the point is not to meet people or have fun. If you just want a clean, well serviced, spacious and well located place to stay, great choice. However, if you hope to experience Wellington bars and nightlife, don't rely on the hostel!

Loved my stay. Great location and really good facilities I would happily stay there again, one of the best if not the best hostels I have stayed at.

A really really nice hostel! it was in a perfect location, right by many main attractions and a main bus stop. It had lots of great facilities, including a games room and kitchen that was filled with everything you would need. Not the most social atmosphere because of its huge size, but was good to relax in. It was super clean, the only slightly bad thing was that the private room we hired was very basic, especially for its price. Other than that it was a great hostel!

Pretty nice location, only a five minute walk from the Te Papa museum and close to a good deal of eating options and bars as well. The place is HUGE and there's not a lot of chances to meet other people, but the facilities are clean. Unlike some other YHA's the wifi and luggage storage are included.

Like any YHA hostel, you know what you're getting. Well equipped and great location. One thing though - the hostel doesn't have any parking facilities which is cool but I think that they should in some way subsidise car parking for customers who are staying at their hostel. Costs $7.50 a day for parking but if you stay a few nights, that racks up.

Couldn't ask for a better location - very close to Te Papa, easy to get to on the bus from the airport (provided you don't walk in completely the wrong direction when you get off the bus, it's only a 3 minute walk from the stop to the hostel). Staff are friendly, the common areas are spacious, and there's a selection of different common areas too. The attached coffee shop is pretty good too.

Big professional hostel. Maybe not the best choise for socializing if you're looking for people to hang out with but that's how it goes with big places and it's not just bad thing it's your choise. Nothing to complain really.

Alright hostel, good wifi. Atmosphere wasn't much but that mightve been because it was winter. Very hotel-like.
