I seem to have some very different standards for hostels after reading some of these reviews... What I need when I travel, in an ideal world, is a bed. Hostel dorms are cheap as sin. If you aren't prepared to share the space or make some sacrifices to your comfort zone, I strongly suggest a motel. My gal and I... More

The room us very clean and basic. The en suite has no plug in the sink. No movable items such as glasses etc. The towels have not been refreshed as promissed. The Sky TV as advertised is not connected. I have reported this to the reception who said it does not have sky Tv. Only to be corrected by the... More

Have stayed at this hostel 3 times due to location convenience. 1- double room on top floor (nice enough and quieter than other floors- could do with sprucing up though. Heater (middle of winter) was on a thermostat but not correct so we slept in our pyjamas and coats!) 2- 4 bed with friends (very very noisy, beds reasonable) 3-... More

If you want to sleep, avoid this place! I was there on a Thursday night and noise from the adjoining pub continued loudly until after 2AM. I was on the 3rd floor with windows overlooking a courtyard below - a perfect funnel for the noise! The room was comfortable but I had a very bad night's sleep. The hostel has... More

I came in on the stray bus and opted to upgrade to a room with a mate. We had the double room with a double bed and single bed and a handicap bathroom attached. It was loud like the other reviews say but luckily we had our own room and could sleep after a night out. They offer dinner for... More

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
