We stayed one night at the Downtown Backpackers Wellington and that was too long. We booked it because it is close to the station and we were catching the train at 7:30 the next morning. We booked a superior room just to give us an extra bit of comfort because of the early start the following morning. The room itself was OK, it was clean, the bed was comfortable and the ensuite was functional if a bit antiquated. The problem started as the wind got up, our room echoed with a banging which we think was something outside but attached to the building swinging in the wind. I told reception and the lad came up to listen. He did go for a walk to see if he could find anything but failed to find the cause. Our night was hell and we got very little sleep. I wrote a letter of complaint but received no reply. I think this is far to big a hostel and employs people to run it thus it is just a job to them and there is no one there who really cares. Keep away.
