Keith L. Couples United Kingdom, July 20, 2015
Good location and service in upmarket Youth hostel

location, staff, quiet rooms
Be aware that most rooms have outside shared bathrooms, but otherwise basic, quietish, and good value for Wellington. Not quite a hotel, nice travel atmosphere and vibe.

It was good except that the nights are cold and the heater only works at interval period.
