Big hostel in downtown Wellington. 4 bed ensuite dorm was good, quite new and so was the (very small) bathroom. Staff was okay. No free Wifi or locker. Kitchen is good, communal area as well, just not many windows in that area. In general a decent hostel despite the size.

Friendly Hostel with good looking rooms but due to the bar next to the hostel it is very loud in the evening. We stayed in different double rooms and the first time we had an TV. So we were disapointed to have no TV the second time for the same price. However, the staff is very kind. The free food... More

This is a clean enough hostel with friendly staff. However, I can't recommend this hostel for anyone who wants to sleep before 2am. The 3 separate nights that we stayed had music that blasted through the walls and I could still hear it through my ear plugs! I have seen that the manager responds to other reviews and says to...

As many of the other reviews have testified, do not expect a sound night's sleep here. Having read the manager's responses to such complaints I decided to bring my problem with the incessant pounding noise of the club to reception. What a waste of time. I was looked at by the receptionist like an idiot - as in well why... More

Beds were quite comfy, even if they were bunks, though the rooms were very small. People were pretty friendly though a lot kept to themselves. Bathrooms and rooms were pretty clean and common areas were spacious and inviting. Only drawback was that they advertised "breakfast included" and "world famous pancakes" - but they actually only supplied the pancake batter so... More

We were only passing through Wellington and chose this hostel for its central location. The atmosphere is laid-back and welcoming and the staff were very friendly. It was easy to book transfers to the ferry terminal for the following morning, and the bus leaves from just outside. Cuba Street is also only a short walk away. We had a six-bed... More

I had had a recent stay in another Nomad so chose this one and was not too disappointed. The staff and other residents were social minded and the place was clean and had everything I needed. I had one minor issue at the start but the staff immediately sorted it for me. I got a good sleep. In the end,... More

We had two nights in a double room with ensuite on 3rd floor. The only issues we had with noise was at 6am on Sunday morning from a couple of male guests chatting loudly on our landing for about 10 mins -but you get those types everywhere.
