It is a nice hostel with a long history and good facilities. We all love it soooooo much!!! You can choose a family room and it will have a good view of the street and it is suitable for trips with several friends! I will try it again next time if I come here.

My mother and I are here currently at the Cambridge and we both love it. Its clean and cozy for a great price. Bonus points for being near one of the more busy/exciting streets in Wellington, but not being in the center of the noise and traffic. Would recommend to friends and family!

Tidy place to stay for a few days. Kitchen is very minimal with no plates or stoves. Social area is quite small, and great to have a pub with meals next door. Single small rooms with separate bathrooms. Warm rooms and welcoming. Cool staff great location

Decent place to stay for a few days. Basic but has what you need. Shared bathrooms were clean. Bed was comfortable and had amenities such as fridge, sink and desk in the room. Having sky tv (only a few channels) in the room is a bonus.

Stayed here on a work trip with some friends. Rooms were small but adequate, we didn't have ensuite Rooms so shared communal bathrooms. One hour of free WiFi/day. Great proximity to town. communal kitchen with basic equipment, nice old school vibe to the building. Staff were very helpful.

Single rooms are pretty basic and simple but are clean, have a small fridge and have a sink, which is awesome. Room has tv with ~10 channels. Unfortunately, you only get one hour free wifi per device, which is very inconvenient when trying to study in this digital age.

Like it here very much☺ I would recommend this if you want to be in the CBD and close to everything . Stores and food places are like a walking distance away. The nightlife is also great and rooms are quite cheap too. Awesome hotel😊

Stayed here in a private room with shared bathroom, the facilities were clean, tea and coffee making facilities, tv and mini fridge in the room. The hotel is located centrally with a 24hour reception, perfect for late night and early morning arrivals from the airport. Probably the cheapest single private room in the city.

Been traveling new zealand for a few months, this is by far the worst hostel I've stayed in. Kitchen is a joke, you have to go to reception to get cutlery (a real sense of trust), no oven, no idea how the stove works, random broken radios that should be thrown out, couchs are in bits, place/pots were dirty. ***free...

The room was nice and clean. Ideal for a short, cheap stay. If you're not picky about views or room decor and you're fine to share facilities, this place is for you. Fairly close to the bayside and city centre.
