I've been to most YHA's on the north island and can't complain about hygiene for any of them. I felt very welcome when I arrived at this YHA. The receptionists always have a smile on their face and they're excited to tell you what to do in Wellington. I didn't even have to ask and they were pleased to tell... More

I booked a bed in the premium female 4 bed with ensuite for two nights. I ended up being alone in my room both nights. This room was on the top floor, and it was very quiet. However, I ended up being pretty unhappy while there. There was a heater on the ceiling, and although I could tell it was... More

I have been using YHA Wellington several times a year for about 10 years, most recently in August 2014. This is a very good central city hostel. High standards of cleanliness in rooms, bathrooms and kitchen. Ensuite rooms are small but comfortable. Kitchens (there are two) are well equipped and never seem to get too busy. The hostel has been... More

The Hostel has MANY activities. My son watched a movie on Friday night. There were countless things to do that were coordinated by YHA. The rooms were good sized and we even had a view of the water from the room. There is a coffee shop as part of the hostel. It was very clean. The only issue was parking.... More

Staff very friendly, great location near bars restaurants. Had room with private bathroom. Room was small, pretty basic and freezing, felt damp. Don't think I would recommend although the staff were great and near to supermarket.

Two nights in twin room with shared bathroom. Basic but clean. Reception was very helpful & cheap bagel / coffee breakfast available. Large canteen style eating area with well-equipped kitchen. Sofa's around to chill & plenty of literature on the area to read through. Best feature was central location - couldn't have been better. Right over the road from large... More

I stayed in a private double room with a shared bathroom for 4 nights. It was great, the room was fine, linen was clean and furnishings modern. The view wasn't amazing and my room was right next to a loud extraction fan thing outside but to be honest I didn't come to Wellington to sit in my room all day... More

My friend and I stayed at YHA Wellington for a night last week (8/8/2014). The hostel was surprisingly good considering we only paid $33 NZD per person. We shared room 606 with this lovely lady from Mt Manganui. The only thing I didn't like was the shower - the water pressure was WAY too low and it was freezing that... More

YHA in Wellington is like star hotel not Hostel. We stayed in a four people room which has own bathroom that is really amazing! And the price is very very nice! Good stay in Wellington! The only problem is the coffee in the morning was so terrible. Maybe YHA need a good barista:)

Attended a conference. Decided to stay at the YHA. My previous experiences in YHA in Australia were awesome. Was about friendly, inclusive, family, like-minded folk, community area, chat with interesting folk. Unlike hotels, very impersonal as far as other people go. Loved my stay in Wtgn at the hostel. Booked a private double. Outstanding. The bathroom star 5. Supermarket right... More
