Receptionist are very friendly! Really bad Internet Wi-Fi. They charge the access! (Only Spark).

Maybe it's not the peak time, so it's quite empty which was good.

One of the best hostels I have visited


Average hostel good location


Great location, close to supermarket, pack your runners and join the locals running!


Really enjoyed my stay here. Spacious room with personal bed lights-great feature! There was also a desk and seat and mirror. A couple of plug points, could have done with more. Places to hang clothes too as well as hang coats. Plenty of space for luggage. Kitchen was great, there were two of them and well equipped with loads of space to sit and eat. Reading room with good book exchange. Clean bathrooms with hairdryer supplied. Seemed quite a social hostel! Coffee shop in reception too! Great!


Brilliant large kitchen with a nice seating area. Great showers and clean bathrooms. Rooms are fine but need more plugs.


VERY helpful staff. Thank you for your patience! More of a hotel than a hostel. Quite corporate with the lifts, 6 storeys and multiple rooms. This looses it's feel for atmosphere and socialising a bit. you have to make and unmake your bed?! 3rd floor bathrooms bad drainage!! Horiible eggy smell. Good activities on e.g film night ans sign posting to events in and around wellington. Great location..


Brilliant free wifi rooms were perfect staff on desk very helpful


Great location - we walked to Cuba St and there were lots of cafes and restaurants nearby inCourtenay St. Room was really good - best we have stayed in at a YHA - lots of room to move, clean, lovely ensuite and even a TV and kettle/ tea and coffee.


Only stayed one night. The lounge areas were a great place to chill with friends. It was nice to have Bathrooms separated between men and women(instead of sharing three toilets and two showers per wing). WiFi was good by the laundry room.


It's my favourite hostel.

Great no-nonsense hostel in a great location.


Very poor customer service, made several mistakes with our booking. Failed to find our reservation for a long time despite us having come in to the hostel to pay for our reservation, generally unfriendly customer service, took very long to actually have our rooms ready, gave us the wrong room, did not even give us a towel, bathroom facilities in the en suite quite poor - certainly not worth $36 a night considering the hostels we have stayed throughout NZ and the entire world
