    The only annoying thing was the police sirens and racing cars at odd times during the night which woke me up several times but that is beyond your control.

    I really liked staying here. It was really nice having a massive kitchen and lounge area, and the bathrooms are big and clean. It has a bit of a smell, but you get used to it.

    An okay hostel considering the price, we had to change rooms after the first night because of the smell of the other roommates but that can’t really be helped by the staff. The rooms are just behind the staff smoking area so you do get that smell coming through the windows. The biggest problem though was the lack of mattress on the bed that my friend had, it was basically just a few blankets. All in all, it was a decent place and I would recommend it if you are thinking about going to Wellington

    I was pretty disappointed with my stay here. Rooms are dark and damp and just not very pleasant. The bathroom and kitchen are quite nice, and it's in a great location, but overall I didn't think this place was worth the money.

    I got a private room and it was ok. It's a bit like a run down hotel so don't expect hostel atmosphere. It's in a great location though which meant I only slept there.

    Stayed in 4 bed dorm then moved to single room- dorms were nicer. Linen and rooms generally clean. Breakfast v good. Kitchen ok but a bit dirty. No lockers. Kept up until 3am by drunk guests fighting and shouting- police involved and I had to make a statement. Staff were apologetic and offered me breakfast vouchers, although could only use 1 of 3 as they gave me them too late to use the morning after, and I left before breakfast was served on final day.

    very smelly rooms, cramped with people staying longterm and spreading out. very noisy, people not staying at the hostel in the corridors. kitchen was not in a condition to be used. only 'perks': could already check in at 11:30 am and enough showers and toilets.
