Very good hostel. Kitchen was fully equipped with everything you could need, strong wifi throughout all floors, large dining/lounge area, staff were always very helpful. Location is perfect, short walk from everything in Wellington. Security was perfect - swipe cards HAD to be used to get into rooms, and rooms had very large security lockers which also had power sockets inside!! Only downside would be that the atmosphere wasn't brilliant however it is a very large hostel so this is expected.

YHA has come a long way. Despite my prejudice, I must say this is a good hostel with excellent and clean facilities - at least in the scope of what they offer, this is as good as it gets. Rooms are basic but some of their defects are being rennovated throughout the summer; if done well this should be one of the better hostels in Wellington. The location is favourable, as is the generosity of the staff.

Nice place, extremely clean. A bit clinical. And the walls between the shared rooms were a bit thin so talking in other rooms could be heard. I had a noisey air conditioning unit from the building next door blaring away all night, which masked the noises from the room next door, so it wasn't all bad!

Not the most social place for backpackers but that's how YHA hostels are. This hostel is pretty big, it felt like a hotel. Great facilities with two kitchens, a games room, large laundry room, and lots of clean showers/toilets. However, the dorms don't have lockers and there was one power socket for six people – and it was under someone's bed! Overall, this is a nice place to stay with good facilities but don't expect much on the atmosphere side.
