    Best large hostel I have stayed at in New Zealand. There are 2 large kitchens with big dinning areas. There are also nice lounge areas throughout the hostel. I stayed in the 4 person mixed dorm which was nice. The rooms we very spacious and the beds were actually decently comfortable. I would recommend to stay in this hostel.

    Had a wonderful time there overnight with very helpful staff and lovely room mates. Warm clean room, spotless bathroom. Other guests considerate- especially group of young college students. Kitchen facilities excellent. It all suits me very well when I am in Wellington. Central, close to transport & other social facilities and hospitality. Sincere appreciation.

    YHA Wellington was a great experience! My boyfriend and I booked a stay and were blown away by how clean it was. We loved it so much that we booked our next hostel stay at a YHA and have already booked another YHA stay in a third city.

    YHA was nice. But when I watched the staff come in and “clean” the bedrooms I was absolutely disgusted. They provide a mattress cover, two sheets, and a comforter. I watched an older man come in, disregard the two sheets, sleep on top of the matress cover, and use the comforter, he took off all of his clothes, slept naked (in a HOT room). And the next day when staff came into clean the room... both the mattress cover and comforter were the two things that didn’t get washed. Yuck.

    Overall a good stay at YHA. I was in a 6 bed female dorm and its probably the biggest 6 bed I've stayed in - plenty of room, huge lockers and the beds were super comfy with no squeaking! For the floor there could be more bathrooms however the free hairdryer and straighteners was a bonus and they were cleaned regularly. Location is ideal, close to everything and the staff were friendly. Loads of common area space and kitchens are decent and regularly cleaned. Definitely recommend staying here!
