Great hostel with plenty of common areas. Had a great time playing pool and the piano in the back room, great way to meet people. Staff friendly and helpful. One thing they didn't mention on the website about the free shuttle from Wellington Station - this is provided by the hostel (with whatever vehicle is available at the time). Give them a call from the station and they will happily pick you up. Train is needed to get Downtown. Had a great time staying there.
By far the best hostel I've stayed in. The staff were so friendly and helpful, and the layout is great - there is a pub/restaurant/kitchen downstairs that has trivia, game and pub crawl nights. Guaranteed to make new friends and have an awesome time! Facilities were very clean, beds comfy. Great place, will definitely be back again.
A great cheap hostel. The breakfast is not much (eggs, bread, PB&J and cornflakes) and beware it ends at 9:30 when the kitchen is locked up for cleaning. Very clean place. Close to a bus stop. In a very nice, leafy green area. 15min walk to Temple Square and the shopping centre. Overall a nice place to stay, happy with the price and what was provided.
An expensive hostel but it was very nice inside. The beds have curtains for privacy, a shelf and lamp for each bed and plenty of power outlets. Plus a large locker that will fit your suitcase or backpack, so very secure. Beware that the cleaners will take ALL the towels that are hung on the back of door - mine was taken and never returned. The staff did not care and were not very sympathetic (they mentioned it happens a lot). Disappointed by their service. Great breakfast provided.
This was an odd sort of hostel, in that it was segregated into a few different houses. The "office" was a house across the road from the main building, and often there wasn't anyone there to ask questions. They also don't provide any maps or visitor guids or tourist info. I had to ask about 3 times to have clean sheets put on the bed, the management doesn't seem very well structured. Otherwise it was a very nice place to stay.
A nice place very close to the beach! It's a bit tricky getting anywhere apart from the beach (roughly a 1 to 2 hour bus ride into LA Downtown not serviced by the train system). The staff were friendly and up for a laugh and helpful. All the bedding was clean, bathrooms were cleaned regularly and kitchen kept very clean too. The mattresses were a little thin but not bad. Very loud and constant noise coming from outside (a generator I think). Overall a good place to stay if you like the beach!
