Advertise free breakfast and dinner. Breakfast: 7:30 to 9:30 All food gone by 8:30 dinner = vegetarian option 2 times per week, oh that's great, I'll just eat twice per week then. Also breakfast and dinner not free as this hostel is $6 per night more expensive than other hostels in the area and I've had bigger snots than the... More

Hi there, thanks for taking the time to leave your review and I'm very sorry to hear that you weren't happy with the free meals offered to you during your stay. This is very surprising as you will see from many of the other reviews these meals are usually very popular. Pancakes are free between 7.30 and 9.30am and I... More

I stayed here twice during my time in New Zealand. Both times I stayed in 4 bed dorms with en suites. The rooms got cleaned everyday as did the communal areas. I would definitely recommend staying here if only for the free pancakes in the morning and the evening meal (this is snack-sized but you can upgrade to a full... More

Room was pretty standard for a hostel, ie minimal space, squeaky/shaky bunk beds. The ensuite bathroom was surprisingly good, decent space and very clean (might be to do with me staying in an all girls 4 bedder). Main problem was the noise from the bar underneath/next door. I stayed in room 114 and could hear the music clearly. Hostel tried... More

Excellent value accommodation with a great team of helpful and interesting staff. Rooms were clean and practical with decent facilities and great showers. Short walk to all the main bars and town based attractions although car parking is lacking due to being located in the middle of a busy street! Really helped us to enjoy out trip to Wellington many... More

This is welcoming, clean and good value for money. It is centrally located, only 15 minutes from the airport and within walking distance to main attractions such as Te Papa museum, the Courtney place shopping district, Mount Victoria and the cable car to the Botanical gardens. I agree with other reviewers that the main problem is the noise from the... More

A bit of a noisy hostel with the Bar below, Nomads seems to think that every backpacker wants a bar on the ground floor of the hostel. There's more to see of Wellington than just the hostel. The key card system which powers the lights and power points is a hassle sort of thing you would find in 3rd world... More

Its very central, so street parking and this means early morning 7am or before, 5pm if you catch someone coming out, or 8pm after the 'after work drinks'. But Oriental bay to the east (15min walk) is free parking. So is doable, even for this central location. Free breakfast (cook your own pancakes from their mix) is fantastic and other... More

I stayed here for a couple of nights during December 2013. I was staying at Xbase earlier but I needed something closer to the ferry boat so it was time to change. The location is great if you want to be closer to the CBD (central business district) and there are heaps more shops. Food is abundant everywhere on the... More
