2 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed here for one night (thankfully no more), the room and toilets were very clean, bed was one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept on! The room itself was suffocating! It was summer when I stayed, it was very hot, there was no air conditioning or at least not one that worked. The window was permanently ajar so... More

Arrived early at 7am and was just hoping to store my luggage for the day but was able to check in to my room. This hostel is well maintained and very close to everything. Only downside was the elevator which made a ringing sound as it arrived on each level and could be heard across the rooms. Fantastic free wifi

This hostel was very clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms had plenty of space and (importantly) plenty of power outlets. The bathrooms are a little small, but there are plenty of them spread around so thats fine. I went down for Armageddon Expo at the Westpac stadium. The location was perfect, it was just $2 each...

The kitchen was rather cramped for several people cook food at the same time. However, it was well equipped. And the dining room was spacious, comfortable. I got free Wi-Fi, but connection from my room wasn't smooth. Using my laptop, I couldn't get connected at all. Connection turned fine from the laundry room, and dining room. Anyway, it's free. I...

This hostel is super clean and very central in the city. The kitchen and communal areas are well equipped and the staff is very friendly. Would definitely recommend this hostel!! Also free WiFi everywhere in the hostel is perfect.

If you are looking at comfortable budget accommodation, this place is perfect. It's very big and busy at times, but the rooms and bathrooms are clean and there are nice cooking facilities as well as a games room and television room. It's only a five minute walk to the bus stops which can take you to the railway station and... More

free wifi and helpful staff made a great stay. We were here for a couple of weeks trying to find work and had a pleasant stay. Also very convenient for the sunday food market, which is the best place to buy veg...supermarkets in NZ are expensive

I've stayed at this YHA four times across the past two months in a private double/single room. I stay here over a hotel for the following reasons: - The kitchen is well resourced, it's easy to find a spot to cook and you can confidently store your ingredients without the threat of them being nicked. - Rooms are comfortably furnished,...

We stayed in a double ensuite room for 6 nights whilst visiting Wellington recently. The whole building is very clean and modern, and within walking distance of all of central Wellington. The Courtney Road bus stop is just around the corner, so getting a bus to and from the airport was easy. Reception and cleaning staff were friendly and accommodating.... More

Dear SuaGiLo, Thank you for taking the time out to comment on our property. We’re glad you enjoyed our location, it is pretty ideal. Being a centrally-located hostel does come with some central city noise. Rest assured, we have taken measures to reduce city noise with double glazing and noise-reduction glass on most windows. The WiFi is something we continually... More
