Property Description

The Dwellington perfectly blends the homely, the cozy and the stylish within a backpackers property. We guarantee you will not stay in a hostel as luxurious as this anywhere in New Zealand.

Over half of The Dwellington is dedicated to common areas, including the chef's style kitchen, the impressive 5 meter long redwood dining table that overlooks the tennis courts, a state-of-the-art cinema room with Netflix and Sky Sports, a games room, ample outdoor spaces with BBQs and much more.

We offer our guests free unlimited high-speed fibre WiFi and a scrumptious free breakfast everyday during their stay. Fresh towels are available on demand anytime you like.

We have a variety of rooms which include spacious private double's, twins, triples, a family room, 4-bed dorms, a female dorm room and a generous 8-bed dorm. Reception is open everyday between 6:30am - 9pm but we can arrange to welcome you if you are arriving later. Please note the property has two levels of stairs and is not suitable for wheelchair access.

Our friendly staff can help with booking a variety of local activities and onward journeys including the Interislander and Bluebridge ferries to Picton.

Reception is open daily from 6:30am - 21:00pm.

Late check-ins can be arranged with prior notice. If no one is at the reception desk, there will be a contact number left.

We do not accept groups of more than 8 people.

We cannot always guarantee that guests from a group booking will be in the same room or any booking will be in the same room for the duration of the stay, though we will always try our very best!

We do not allow minors under the age of 17 in shared rooms, with or without guardians. Families are welcome, but would be required to book an entire room. View House Rules

    This is one of the best hostels I’ve ever stayed in and I’ve travelled and stayed in my fair share. After my first experience I would always book here when I was back in Welly. Yes it is costs a little more then some of the others in town but worth it. If you want to chill you can if you want to socialize you can. The facilities and staff are amazing I could and on but I can only make this so long but if you are reading this to see if you should book do it, you won’t be disappointed

    One of the nicest hostels I have ever stayed in. Each bed has its own light and power sockets. The entire building is very modern inside. Huge kitchen, lounge and movie room with projector. Little touches like flannels and q tips in the bathroom gave it more of a hotel sort of feel. On the weekend they even had a staff member making omelettes to order. Very impressed and I would stay again for sure.

    Quite the sweetest hostel a travelling soul could hope to find! After the gruelling sterility of 'Base' and 'Nomads' joints, I was thoroughly surprised and delighted! Will surely be my go-to in Welly from now on! Everything is pleasing here.. (perhaps the addition of drawable bed-curtains of some kind might make perfect?)

    The best hostel I've ever stayed at! Very clean, cute, & comfortable. All of the spaces are inviting and the staff/other guests were welcoming & friendly. The bed itself was very comfortable and I enjoyed the little touches that made the hostel so much more than a hostel (like flowers on the staircase, cute duvet covers, nice signs in the kitchen/lounge, rolled hand towels, etc). The staff even had sunscreen when I needed some! I'll definitely be staying here again next time I'm in Wellington :)

    This is the nicest hostel I have stayed in. I have stayed and travelled through Europe, Australia, USA, South America as well as other places and by far the Dwellington was the nicest. The cleanliness, traditional and modern touches, and the amazing kitchen and lounge made you want to sit back and relax. The staff, specifically Noah was very friendly, helpful and kept the place in tip top condition. I recommend staying here even if it is just for a night, I would absolutely stay here again.
