Staffs are awesome, location is perfect, close to the museum, botanic garden and gallery. Kitchen and bathroom are clean. A lot of good restaurants and café near the hostel. Thanks a lot for the one week.

The price is really good and so is the location( right in the centre), however there are some cons when it comes to the rooms and the kitchen. There is not enough cutlery, pans, plates,... for a hostel this big. It seems like there are a lot of people staying there for longer, so some don't do the dishes. And... More

Hi there, thank you for your feedback. Due to the nature of our building, there is unfortunately not a lot of noise insulation. For this reason, we have a no-noise and no-alcohol policy in place from 11pm every night, and security on site after-hours to help enforce this. A simple phone call to the reception number will alert the security... More

We stayed at Trek Global for about a week when visiting Wellington and we loved it! The location is perfect, only a short stroll from Cuba st and about 15min from the Te Papa museum.

Had one night here. Good reception, messed up the car park we had reserved, this was fixed immediately thankfully. Nice room. Kitchen was kind of grubby but still nice. Good security within the building. Only problem was that the showers wet the entire bathroom floor, which was not very pleasant. Overall good stay

Generally a nice modern hostel with good facilities however it is very loud. There are separate kitchens on each floor but none of the rooms seemed to be away from the kitchens so if anyone is drinking out there until late you won't get much sleep. The ground floor was the worst and even though drinking is meant to stop... More

Thank you very much for your review Coppernel. We recognise that our hostel layout has pros and cons. The multiple kitchens offer convenience to our guests no matter which floor they are staying on, but the proximity of the bedrooms to the kitchens does have drawbacks with regards to noise. For this reason, we have the power to the kitchens... More

Overall it's quite a nice place, one of the better ones in Wellington. There's some great things like the location and there's five kitchens, and the people are generally nice. The bad points are that there are group bookings like a children's church group (approx 20 kids) plus families with young kids. Also they don't change the duvet covers between... More

My friend and I booked a room for just 2 persons what was very nice because we didn't have to get our stuff sorted to make space for other people.

This is a brilliant hostel, unless you're one of those people who likes to sleep in past 7:30 on a weekend. The worst thing about the place BY FAR is the cleaning staff, namely the head cleaner who is, quite possibly, the devil. No alarm? No problem! Cynthia's stream of consciousness is so loud it will wake you from the... More
