    The BEST Hostel in NZ! Super clean, friendly staff, free kitchen supplies and seasonings, free bikes and skateboards, and perfect location, what more could you want! The bathrooms were beautiful and the showers were whole rooms. The beds were so comfy with the two pillows and privacy curtains. Couldn’t say enough good things about this place. Met some really cool people on the fajita night and ended up traveling with them for a few days! Thanks for such an amazing stay!

    I was blown away. The Marion was the best hostel I have ever stayed at. Amazing value for your money. Superb location. So much personality in the place, from hardwood floors, overhead showers, and really cool art on the walls. I highly highly recommend this place if you’re traveling to Wellington.

    Designy, very clean hostel, well located in a cool, urban neighbourhood of Wellington. Friendly and helpful staff. Beds with black curtains and a bed lamp and an electricity plug ensure privacy even in a dorm.

    Best hostel I’ve ever stayed out hands down,no question. Like have you ever heard of a hostel with a granite counter?!?? Amazing. (Not sure it’s it’s actually granite but you know, you get the point, fancy)

    The best hostel I’ve stayed at in New Zealand. Quite new and so clean. I witnessed the staff cleaning up in the kitchen numerous times during my 1 night stay. Beds were comfy and loved the curtains for privacy. More hostels need to do this! Real towels given at check in, hairdryers and straighteners available in the shower room. Only thing that could improve it would be a shower curtain in the cubicle so your stuff doesn’t get wet. Kitchen is a bit small but not too long a wait to cook.

    Finally Wellington has a beautiful, quality hostel to be proud of. The Marion is stunning and sparkling clean with great amenities. The staff are really caring and professional. I stayed in the 6 bed female dorm - the room had plenty of space for luggage and beds are the comfiest and freshest I've ever stayed in. Two gripes: light from corridor shining into room all night and not quite enough fridge space. Marion puts the awful, windowless, drunk backpacker hostels in this beaut city to shame.

    A lovely place to stay for a break from cramped loud and dirty hostels and some privacy without having to spend loads on a hotel or private room :)

    The Marion is good but I wouldn't stay here again for the price. The walls were so thin you could hear conversations happening in the next room word for word, so you're constantly being woken up by people speaking (quietly) outside the dorm. Kitchen was way too small for the number of guests, only 6 cooktops for the entire hostel and it closes at 9. Overall though a beautiful and clean hostel though with a friendly atmosphere.
