We have a car so driving out to Plimmerton and enjoying relative peace and quiet was no problem. Otherwise, it is a 15-minute walk from train stop in a quiet area with a cafe or two nearby. More

Great hostel. There is a supermarket just in front of it which is very convenient. It is close to the museums and the waterfront. More

Only one night here but it was a good place to stay to explore Queen street, the waterfront, and the sky tower. Easy to meet people in the dining area. Early morning flight was easy bc staff was available 24hours to call taxi. Only 25min ride to airport at 430am. Very cold in the room due More

Great location in the heart of Wellington, rooms and beds are a bit past their prime but the proximity to Wellington's finest cafes, restaurants and nightlife ensures you'll have no reason to stay in your room. Extremely friendly staff and the bar at Cambridge is a great place for a More

This hostel is just a small part of a hotel, which means that it somewhat lacks the atmosphere hostels are generally known for. There was a problem with one of the windows in my room, which combined with the rather turbulent Wellington weather made a lot of noise during the last night, More

Room as super cold and a little noisy as the window was ajar and we couldn't shut it. One thin blanket per bed wasn't enough for Windy Wellington in our room! More

Stayed in a 10 bed dorm on 105. The first floor stunk of damp and 105 wasn't so fresh either. Moved to 305 much better. Kitchen has good variety of pans etc. Only 2 toilets and showers on 3rd floor. More

We stayed here for four nights and had a horrible experience. Our room was full of long term stayers who were extremely rude and smelly. Three of the four nights, the residence of the hostel partied on a set of steps outside our dorm window until after 5am (on one night 7am). Would not More

Great stay at Base Wellington. Location is perfect, just around the corner from the centre of town with all the bars and cafes. The building, which i learnt from the friendly staff was built in the 1930s, is full of character. Facilities are great, TV lounge and outside breakfast area was More

We stayed in a twin room for one night. The room itself was OK. Big enough and handy to have a sink in the room, and it was nice to have a bathroom shared with just one other room. But the bathroom facilities were old and although I think it was clean, it just felt unclean that everything More

Big building with a huge kitchen, a bar inside and an elevator Everything was perfect but it has the hotel feel that some backpacker might not like. It is really a question of taste. More

Pretty gross. Also, make sure you spare an hour or so for check in (or any tiny thing you may need from reception)- the SLOWEST guy in the world. I guess it's pretty close to Cuba Street though..? More

In the last year I have stayed at hostels in UK, France and New Zealand. My bench mark for the standard of facilities and services sought in other similar situations has been measured against "The Generator" hostel situated close to St Pancras in London. "Lodge in the City" was generally More
