Hotstel very close to everything (Te Papa, Courtenay Place and Cuba St). I walked all the way to Lambton Quay for the cable car and even to the Parliament Beehive from the hostel. The walk on the waterfront was nice. Even to Oriental Bay.
As for the room, I stayed in a private double bedroom with shared bathroom. The room I was in might be a bit small for a couple though but the bed was very comfy. I was on the 3rd floor and had quite a hard time sleeping because of the noise coming from the lounge on ground floor. The shared bathroom was pretty clean for a Hostel. Note that YHA wlg has at least 300 beds so expect to see lots of people everytime, especially during rush hours for the toilet/shower;
The few staff I met was very friendly. Lots of information about Wellington available there.
