Clean, super convenient location, free WiFi, good facilities. I'd recommend this place to any backpacker visiting Wellington.


By far the best hostel I've ever stayed in, and I've been to a lot! Quiet, clean, very friendly and helpful staff, great location and facilities... I highly recommend YHA to anybody traveling through Wellington!


YHA was good for a weekend stay but I wouldn't have liked to stay much longer. The shower was pretty bad, switched from warm to cold throughout a 5 minute shower, never got hot. When they say check out is 10am, they mean it. No 5-10 minute grace period.

great hostel with good facilities and friendly staff


Considering I booked a "mixed" dorm by mistake & ended up with a male who truly snored all night no matter how many times I woke him up!!!!! Certainly not your fault, I have stayed there before & will certainly be back. Thanks for your help. Cheers Biddy
