Honestly this is an unrealistically good hostel. Everything is perfect. The staff are great. Don’t even consider anywhere else in Wellington.

This is honestly the worst hostel I’ve ever stayed in. Walking in you are hit with the lovely aroma of marijuana. The place was so grimy. There’s just a random mattress chilling in the hallway. The kitchen was a battleground, I didn’t even take the free breakfast (it was that dirty), and I’m a Yorkshireman! Bathroom was awful, I went to the subway down the road to pee. The police made a lovely appearance at one point, not sure why, probably due to previous aroma comment. Please just don’t stay.

Possibly the best hostel I've ever stayed in. Breakfast and soup is provided for free (the soup is class). The staff were awesome and so friendly. Franz Josef is so small location doesn't matter. 10\10 would glow worm again.

Wasn't my scene. Staff seemed to make quite a big deal over simple things (like borrowing an extra blanket). Kitchen was pretty dirty. Really need to improve the comfort of the bed, you could feel almost every wooden slat underneath you. Toilet is miles away from your bed.

This is one of the best hostels we've stayed in. We checked in late but the guys were great about it. The included breakfast had eggs (of your choice). The best part though was that the one of the staff members drove us to the ferry port free of charge! Staying again when we get back to the north island. Great job guys!!!

Really good value for money. Nice location and a nice included breakfast. It was pretty quiet, but that's just what you need after a long day hiking. The showers were amazing!!! Would definitely stay again if I ever return to Taupo.

Great place to crash for a night before heading to explore NZ. The location is great, just a few minutes from the sky bus drop off. Staff were welcoming and the breakfast was decent. Will stay again before going home.

Overall the room is very good. Just be careful with the staff, they tried to claim breakfast wasn't included and wouldn't have given us breakfast unless we argurd the point. It's honestly more of a resort than a hostel, if you are after a hostel experience go to bamboo down the road.

It's not a bad place at all. The atmosphere was really low but this was probably because the weather was dreadful. Decent place to crash. DON'T GO TO FIJI IN THE WET SEASON!

Good location but rude staff. Atmosphere was not nice, but if you are a party traveller you might like it.

No lockers were provided for any valuables. The staff were friendly but played music on their guitar well into the early hours of the morning. The door to the dorms didn't close, so this made sleep all but impossible. I do think this would be a good place if you weren't bothered by not getting sleep, but I really am. The mosquito nets were more hole than net so many bites were suffered.

It was empty which isn't the staff's fault, but they were really unwelcoming and basically ignored us for our stay. Would probably be better in the high season with a bit more life.
