Having stayed in the worlds best hostel World Wide Backpackers Wellington this nice little place definitley deserves number 2 on my evergrowing list. Superfriendly and absolutely helpful staff, nice open spaces, good chilled vibes and entertainment. Once they include free breakfast and get rid of the nasty wifi filter I'll update to 5 stars.

For a backpacker place, this is amazing. The facilities and service was just outstanding! A very recommendable place, especially the price in consideration! I was supposed to stay for 2 nights, but due to a cancellation of my dive trip, I only needed to stay 1 night and got a refund - wonderful!

This was a quick stoo off on an epic road trip. We arrived in the evening, check in was easy and staff were really helpful. We had a private room, with the worlds thinnest mattress, seriously an airbed has more oomph to it. However room was clean and towels were provided. Hostel is spacious and has a nice indoor outdoor... More

All started well with a courtesy pick up from Greyhound bus stop which was a nice surprise. Hostel it self was very clean and our room was one of the best that we've had on our tour on Australia's east coast. At night everything was nice and quite and we had a really good sleep before heading to Magnetic Island... More

This is such a cosy hostel, more like a home from home! Everyone was really friendly and helpful! It is a bit of a way to the ferry but they do have a free shuttle a few times a day. Everything was so clean and the kitchen is really big! I'd definitely recommend.

We only stayed one night. Will the friendly staff member is lovely. He made us feel very welcomed....everything is sooooo clean, big kitchen with free coffee and tea. The supermarket is not far and they have drop off and pick ups to the ferry terminal. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you Will !!!!

I came as a group of 3 from Northern Ireland, we got a 4 bed dorm for 6 weeks. As we were there for so long I feel as though we really saw the real deal. It is mainly a family run guesthouse, who were incredibly welcoming and accommodating to all our needs. It was very clean, great kitchen facilities... More

Great place to stay. Warm welcome, clean rooms and bathrooms and well equipped kitchen. The bathrooms all had good quality hand wash too. Nice touch! The only downside was that other guests were very noisy at night but otherwise a very pleasant stay.
