Me and a friend stayed in Wellington for a weekend to attend a dodgeball tournament. We had hired a car and it was secure parking complex next to it, which worked out well. We had paid the prices for bunks in an 8 share dorm and were upgraded to a 4 share room with our own bathroom. Location was excellent... More

Hi there, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. It is awesome to see that you enjoyed your stay with us. Upgrading people to smaller dorms is something we always do in the quieter months when we have availability to do so. We hope to see you back in the capital again soon. Saoirse, Hostel Manager More

Nice location and nice clean building. Staff was helpful but not everybody was really friendly. Rooms are good, I stayed in a 4 bed dorm with own bathroom. Common areas are good, bar next to the hostel was nice as well. Was not really impressed about the price to pay for a night. Was ok but not impressive. Think there... More

Although it's located in the middle of downtown Wellington, this contributes to the negativity of my review. It was extremely loud for much of the night and the noise came from both backpackers and cars/buses. The shower was extremely poor as the water pressure trickles out, was luke warm at best, and the shower curtains are too small to fully... More

Friendly staff, rooms and bathrooms are clean, had a good night sleep and perfect location: all I need :-) My room (4share female) was a bit small but overall a very good hostel. $4 for 24hrs of wifi or 1 dollar per 15 minutes on the computer at reception. They also do free pancakes in the morning!! ;-)

The rooms and facilities were clean and updated, and the front desk staff were helpful and polite. The free meal was tasty enough, and the location is very central to Wellington City Centre. That being said, the atmosphere of this hostel (and other Nomads across the country) caters to the "under 25 and away from home for the first time... More

Squeaky beds, older but centrally located building. Dirty kitchen, dirty communal spaces. Good free dinner at the bar next door but the portions (even when you pay to have it upgraded to a regular sized meal) are small. Bathroom was pretty clean. No individual outlets or lights. Have to pay for wifi.

Nice and mostly clean hostel (we had to ask for new sheets as the ones provided were dirty). Spacious rooms with plenty of storage space. Really enjoyed the free dinner (which was upgraded as we were with kiwi experience). Free pancake mix in the morning is also a bonus.

I stayed here with three other friends and i would not go there again. The room smelled really bad , which can happen if a lot different people sleep in there but the problem was simply we could not open the window properly and therefore not get any fresh air. The beds were not the most stable ones and the... More
