    Awesome place to meet people and hang. The kitchen and other facilities are pretty f*****, there’s like 10 fridges all jam packed with food so it’s nearly impossible to keep food in the kitchen. It’s a great fun hostel and would recommend!

    Decent value place if you want to be in the action, but you pay for this with being on a main road. Bring earplugs, you'll need them if you want any sleep!

    It’s a cheap hostel for a reason! It’s not the nicest place in the world but definitely worth the amount spent! The shared areas were a lot of fun and I all the employees were awesome and super helpful!

    Creepiest hostel I have aber been at. The hallways looks like from a sixtys thriller and bathrooms are all mixed gender and dirty. No controls of who comes in so my roomies brought some external friends into our dorm. But also the cheapest hostel you can find in Wellington so I guess you get what you're paying for.

    Pretty bad hostel, but also cheap. The sheets smelled weird and I was sleeping next to a road where I could hear everything. The environment seemed nice though, but I only stayed for one night, so my impression wasn't thorough.

    Water was leaking into the kitchen, almost had it land in my soup. Hostel was fairly beaten down, as you'd expect for the price. No recycling.

    Horrible place. Would not sleep there again even if it was free. This place literally looks like an asylum that turned into a hostel. We slept in a 4 mixed dorms room that had pipes and plumbing system inside it - turns out it used to be a toilet and became a room. So crowded and merely has enough place for humans to move (I got hit by the pipe when trying to get down from the bed). The facilities were not maintained at all, dirt, stink and noise all over the place. STAY AWAY.
