don't expect much. Good for backpackers who don't mind cockroaches, water damage, poor and expensive Internet and a backpacker style stay. The Beatles certainly wouldn't come near this place now. Best part of this hotel is the location.

The staff are really nice.The Lounge is nice cause it's a great place to meet people and play pool or table tennis, make friends. Note this is budget accommodation, but its at a great location. In the centre of the CBD its handy to public events and transport.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my stay here for the last few months and if i weren't changing my job I would stay longer. There is a great atmosphere and balance between international students and contractual workers. With the common room downstairs you have the opportunity to socialize or keep to yourself in your room.

I've been there for a couple of months and I really enjoyed my permanence. It's rather quite and if you wanna talk with someone (travellers, students, workers...) you can always go to the kitchen/lounge floor and you'll always find somebody there with which chat and have fun. And still, there's an awesome manager, Yong, who will always help you whit... More

We were looking for longterm rental - to be honest the online pictures are VERY generous... that actual room shown to us was a long way away from the online picture - very tired rooms for the price. Would be OK for a short time if I was paying $80 but not for long. Time to refresh the rooms and... More

I stayed here for just under 3 months - Great location in the centre of Wellington, furnished - everything you need, really quiet, secure, cheap laundry, helpful and friendly staff (Thank you Yang!!). I recommend the Hotel St George to any students or backpackers on WHV's to stay there when in Wellington for longer than a few weeks.
