Always a pleasure to stay at Urban Retreat, just a shame I had to share a rickety bunk with a fidgety sleeper.

I stayed in a double room which turned out to be a twin with a double bed, score! Room was light and airy, ensuite bathroom was nice aswell. The free snack sized meal is a nice touch too, worth upgrading if you're feeling hungry! 2 bucks for dinner, shouldn't be sniffed at! If your room is situated over the courtyard, take earplugs. It was loud til about midnight on a Sunday with the windows open (it's summer, so obvs!), I imagine it's louder on Friday/Saturday nights. P.S. get a better elevator

Hi there, thanks so much for taking the time to leave your review and I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. We did have an issue with the lift breaking down for a while on Sunday so apologies if that caused any inconvenience to you, thankfully we were able to have it back up and running again soon. Hope to see you back in Wellington again in the future. Kate, Hostel Manager

Had a lot of fun at this hostel, really nice outside area, perfect for summer. Not far from local amenities, comfy beds.

A social hostel in a good location. I think a lot of issues depend on the people who use the place. But some of the bedrooms are incredibly small for the amount of beds, and the beds... I needed a massage after my stay. Very uncomfortable, they obviously get a lot of use. The kitchen is also very small for the amount of people who want to use it. If it wasn't for these, I'd have stayed longer.

Hi there, thank you very much for your feedback. We appreciate your feedback and are always trying very hard to make everyone's stay as comfortable as possible. Our cleaning staff cleans the common areas multiple times a day but with so many people coming through it'll still look messy at times. We are actually looking at getting new mattresses! We hope to see you again soon. Thanks Nomads Auckland Management

Nice place, quite clean and a fairly decent breakfast in the morning, however the staff could sometimes be a bit miserable. Also had to share one key with everyone else in the room which tended to complicate things. There was also no air conditioning, so had to keep the windows open at night resulting in a fair amount of mosquito bites :(
