Reviewed 27 October 2017

Could not fault the service, staff were friendly. Room clean and tidy, bathroom really nice and clean. I could not take up the offer of the pancakes as I had to leave very early in the morning.My only groan/moan is the noise. Unbelievably noisy, it may have been where my room was situated but I was totally over the screaming shrieking females I could hear until 11.00pm. Woke 3 times in the night to loud banging and crashing. Yes, I realise this is a backpacker's and will in future book else where.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room if you need to sleep or have an early start.

Friendly, helpful staff, clean facilities and a positive vibe. No issues at all. It was all good.
Oh, and the location is great, too. Right in the heart of the greatest little capital city in the world!

Service was pretty friendly and they serve a couple small snacks early morning and evening. Bathrooms are really clean. Wifi is $5 a day. The hostel is huge and rooms are cramped and hot. Beds are incredibly creaky and mattresses thin. I'd give it a much lower rating except that it seems it's the best Wellington has to offer in the $25 to $30 range. Whatever, the city is great so the hostel is what it should be - just a place to crash.

Has a good location and I loved the free breakfast/dinner! Wifi you have to pay for, but it's decently priced, or there are nearby locations to use wifi from. Bunk beds are a bit loud while shifting around.

What an awesome place. Clean, centrally located, great rooms, great facilities, cost effective, fantastic staff and a great bar next door

We stayed for the Bristish Lions trip and it was a fraction if the cost of other hotels. In fact most of the guests at the other hotels came here to use the facilities

We were 3 adults (50 years old) and 3 boys (17 years old). We had the top rooms with twin beds and Ensuite. awesome if you can afford the little extra

Room Tip: Hire the electric push bikes to see the city

Great room, clean and spacious hostel, awesome staff who are always happy for a yarn! Always came back to a clean en suite and fresh towels - sometimes straight out of the dryer so they were still warm!
