Thieves and burglars stay in there hotel”
My stuff was stolen in the kitchen of this hotel, though there’s monitor, the staff just asked me some useless questions and tried to get rid of me from their reception. That makes me feel like I was looking for their troubles. And actually my room mate told me that I was not the only poor guy. SO! You can definitely tell that this hotel doesn’t care about their guests and keeps letting these kind of awful things happened again and again. Therefore, if you are a catering traveler, never stay in this hotel!

Good place to stay in cold season”
The best about this hotel is that the room have a heater. This is the warmest place i'd stay in winter. Also love the strategic location. It is just opposite the railway station and intercity bus station and it is walking distance to many attractions. Room and bathroom are clean. It also has a big kitchen for backpackers that want to cook. However, poor soundproof is the minus point as noise made by occupants next door can be clearly heard.

This has been the best place I stayed in Wellington. After trying in other hostels, this place is really good. Big kitchen, comfy common areas and it's just next to the waterfront, train station, supermarket. I would stay here again for sure.

Everything is good and it's cheap except two things - People drink way too much and become disgusting at night - Some of the persons at the reception are disgusting, heartless, especially a women in her 30's, she does not listen, she speaks coldly on purpose, nobody likes her, she must not work there and it will make everythimg perfect

Location is ideal but the accommodation itself was meh”
Might be a personal preference but I didn't much care for the way it was converted from a hotel to a hostel and so there were no dorm style bathrooms and were only en-suites. The bunks were not very sturdy and it felt a bit crowded in the 6 bed dorm. Overall it feels more like a facility than having any home-style appeal which I realize again is a preference but it wasn't for me. It's great that it's mere steps from the bus stop, and has 24/7 reception, though. I wouldn't stay more than one night here.

The location was fantastic and the staff were great. However, there was an issue with the toilet in the 6-bed dormitory that I was in and they couldn't rectify it till the next morning - so the 6 of us had to use another common toilet in another floor for the night! Besides this, the other toilet was not too clean either - making it very difficult to use. It was quite inconvenient. Considering that the fault was discovered in the morning, they should really have been able to fix the toilet during the day time. I would suggest that they have an accessible handyman close to premises to fix issues like this faster.

Good for money but unfriendly staff ”
I stayed here for 2 nights. It's value for money and location is good, Wellington train station is just cross the road. The hostel was much older than I expected. It's an okay place for a short stay, but I wasn't happy with unfriendly staff. I had an issue of room key card , which I couldn't unlock the room. According to staff, the key cards are electronically sensitive. I've never ever had such problem, even though I stayed various hotels and hostels. More than 6 times in two nights, I had to go to the reception to fix , which made me tired. Even they never apologised. I enjoyed to stay in Wellington, but won't come this hostel ever again.

Unhelpful staff. Our room window was directly above the grease vent for the kitchen and everything stunk. Blankets were scratchy and old. Beds squeaky and so uncomfortable. Kitchen was absolutely disgusting, the ovens didn't even work and doors had to be wedged shut with objects. Pots and pans provided were rusty, missing handles and black with old grease. The entire building had a weird, sour smell. Hated it here.
