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

We booked via Amoma (who incidentally I will never use again).... 3 blokes going to Wellington to watch the World Cup Cricket. We booked a 'Tripple' room through Amomaonly to find Nomads Capital do not have 'Tripple' rooms... However, they understood the situation and offered to provide a mattress on the floor next to the two beds already in room....... More

I stayed there for three nights. The location is very good. The rooms are quite big and clean. The kitchen has good facilities.. A nice common area with tv! Through the fact that alcohol is not allowed in the hostel it's quite quiet during the night.

I've stayed at Nomads Capital maybe 7 times, always in the 4-bed female dorms, and keep coming back every time I'm in Wellington. The hostel has a great location, close to all the action on the waterfront and on Cuba St, and bus transport on Manners St, and it's also right across the street from the Wellington iSite - perfect!...
