This is a hostel in downtown wellington.
The best thing about is and why we stayed there was the location.
It is immediately outside the railway station which is how we arrived so had no distance to travel. The station also has a free shuttle to the interisland ferry which is how we left and so saved a taxi ride.
The place was ok but a bit old and run down. We had a two bunk family room with an onsuite bathroom. The latch on our window was broken and flakey. There was some noise as our room was just opposite a lift but it wasnt terrible.
There is a big public room with a cafe counter, a tv room and a big communal kitchen. The cafe did breakfast which you had to book the night before and was extra but ok. There was paid internet in the public room but no wireless.
We stayed here for one night because we were passing through and had to make an early ferry the next morning. It was fine for that but I wouldnt particularly recommend a longer stay/
