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

I stayed here for four days in a female only dorm and had a great time. The staff were friendly and helpful with directions and advice for things like sim cards or nearby stores. The facilities were very well maintained and cleaned daily, so it was very comfortable. Additional features I appreciated were: a bicycle storage area (with swipe access),... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in May. The location was great for central Wellington, staff were helpful and friendly and facilities were clean. Only downside was the street noise on Saturday kept us awake which could be solved with better window glazing but obviously is to be expected in the centre of a city.

Hey NomadicKiwi1, Thank you staying with us during your time in the Capitol. Your feedback is greatly appreciated. I’ll pass on your kind words to our reception and housekeeping teams. 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....
