Not a bad hostel. The room and bathroom were nice and clean, and no issues with noise on the top floor. Kitchen doesn't wow, but not too bad. There is a no alcohol policy (not even 1 glass of wine - it is enforced :P but staff were good about it) which is a wee bit of a pain, but... More

The welcome we received was brilliant. The beds were very comfortable and the housekeeping was great. The front desk staff were extremely helpful with ANY queries we had. We booked a Lord of The Rings tour through them and that was fantastic too! The one downside is that the wifi is rather costly. Free meal between 6-7 every night too!... More

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.

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.

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
