Quiet location away from the city centre, but easy to get to the city ($2 by bus, frequent service.) Plenty of shops, cafes and pubs nearby in Mount Eden village; supermarket about 15 min walk - open until midnight; on bus route to airport. And that's in addition to the friendly and helpful staff and clean facilities, which all adds up to a great place to stay.

Probably the cleanest backpackers that I stayed in while in NZ! Good location for walking Tongariro, handy for National Park train station. The hot tub was most welcome after walking the Northern Circuit. The only thing that the hostel lacks is a proper drying room, but the staff were very helpful in providing some space to hang wet clothes, and start drying boots.

Very nearly very good! Could do with a bit of simple maintenance, such as making sure that blinds and windows open / close properly. Good location, reasonable facilities. Wifi is expensive, after the free 30 minutes.

Really impressed with the effort the staff make to keep the place clean. The hire bikes are also very useful for a quick trip into town.

Great facilities, but didn't get a good night's sleep - there was a lot of noise from people using the outside areas until the early hours of the morning (despite the official 10pm closedown), and the mattress on the bed that I slept on in the Bark Bay room was so soft / thin that I could feel the wooden base of the bed beneath - ended up putting a camping mat on top of the mattress, and slept much better after that.

Always a pleasure to stay at the Villa - helpful and friendly staff, lovely building with period features, and the apple crumble in the evenings gets everyone together and helps to build a great atmosphere.

Just passing through Wellington - arrived in the evening, left on the early ferry, so didn't really get to know the place.

Great location - close to Airport bus, convenient for city, yet quiet and relaxed. Very helpful staff, and good facilities.
