This was by far the most run down hostel I have ever stayed at. The bed was incredibly uncomfortable and the sheets felt dirty and very worn. The Windows don't close properly and there were a series of break ins that week we stayed. The showers were incredibly mouldy. But the bathrooms looked like they had been cleaned so that's... More

Ok. Same problem again just like any other hostel around australia, tasmania and new Zealand. Dirty rooms Smelly bed sheets and pillowcases. Unfortunately our hostel owners has a bad habit of not hiring a cleaner and not actually taking care of the hygiene issue seriously. This hostel one of them unfortunately and not surprised. Anyway, Only positive thing was friendly... More

We stayed in this room two nights but the atmosphere and hostel are not recommended. The room was bare necessity, window would not close,a test was so thin every time I turned I would feel a different bar pressing in my back. Duvet was thin, ratty and not at all clean(picking off dark hairs though both of us were fair).... More

This is a very cheap backpackers and as such is what you would expect. An old building, small rooms and basic beds and toilets / showers. Nothing wrong, it was clean and warm and quiet. The service was outstanding. I booked for a concert night when the whole town was full, the concert over ran and I didn't turn up... More

Fine location, good beds, hot showers, free wi-fi. No complaints whatsoever. Nothing to rave about, but I enjoyed my stay and would totally stay here again. I bought a BBH card from them, but they didn't apply the discount, so that was pretty lame I guess.

Spent just one night in this hostel. Only positive point is the friendly staff. I was frozen the whole time there, with no heating in the room or elsewhere. The kitchen was the warmest due to people cooking. They didn't provide clean sheets or a pillow case. There was a fitted sheet on the bed but the pillow and comforter... More

I had a great stay at Rosemere Backpackers. The rooms were a good size. The FREE wifi actually worked all over the hostel. I had a chance to speak to Mark, (The Owner) and he is such a nice guy. The thing I liked the most about him was that fact he took so much pride in the work he... More

I stayed there for about 3 weeks, got to know most of the guests (plenty of long-term residents) so I'll admit my review is a little bit biased. If you are looking for a comfy and quiet place to relax during your time in Wellington I would not recommend it. Parties tend to go on until late at night (even... More

I am not picky about hostels - low price so you get the basics.Usually I always read reviews before booking & we booked Rosemere 3 days before arrival,we were constantly on the road & Easter weekend was upon us,called this hotel,they had rooms & I completed the booking over the phone. Must say - the very WORST first impression ever!Only... More

What make Rosemere unique, different, special is us... people that lives here, those one that go and come all the time. you can stay in Rosemere a day or a year (like me and many others) and your feeling is gonna be...
