Chose to stay here as it was cheaper than the "base" just down the road, happy to report it's also a better place to stay! The backpackers area is clean and well presented, music went on until around midnight on Saturday night but was a good night sleep when we got back, facilities are on point, staff were great, can't...

This hotel/hostel is close to many restaurants, bars and Te Papa Museum. The rooms are clean but a bit older. Wifi is only accessible via coupons which are time-limited and have to be purchased which is a bit unusual for a place aimed at a younger/backpacker crowd. I got 2 free coupons upon check-in - overall an outdated setup if... More

Absolutely loved our stay at The Cambridge! Our friend recommended it as he was a long termer there and we were not disappointed! Upon arrival we thought we had gone to the wrong place as we had walked into a proper hotel reception - really clean with really friendly staff. We went to our hostel room and it was also... More

Great position near Courtney Place, comfortable bed, clean. Excellent breakfast and coffee in the bar. Old and full of character but getting a little rundown in places and in need of some refurbishing. Large flat screen TV. Pleasant reception staff.

As a first time and solo traveler to Wellington, I didn't have a hard time finding this hotel. Great location - it's near the museums, beaches, parks, bus terminal, shopping centers and dining hangouts. I just walk from the hotel to get to Lambton Quay, Cuba St, etc. I loved my room - especially the view at night with my... More

Room was comfortable, although fairly small. Clean bedding, carpet and functional furnishings. Shared bathroom facilities in keeping with budget hotel accommodation. Good bar and sports TV/social area, ideal for travellers on their Wellington stopover. Friendly and helpful reception staff, happy to provide map and directions to Visitor Information Centre, etc. Central location, handy to restaurants, bars, etc. Budget accommodation in... More

I have found this to be well priced, clean with a great location. Easy check in. I prefer this to large hotels in the city. A short walk to main dining area of town. Breakfast in the morning was very well priced with good coffee. I will stay again.

Reception staff were friendly. Room was warm. But I requested an upper level room and quiet room as we were only there for one night and weren't going out in town. But we were given a room right next to their bar so didn't get to sleep to 3/4 am! The pictures on their website are misleading as our room... More
