      Dirty old party hostel”
      If you're used to party hostels, this place is okay i guess. For me; i hated it. The room was like a crime scene, everything was dirty and old and I had a very unpleasant roommate. Couldnt wait to get out of there! Also, they offer 'free' wifi, but only until 7pm and ONLY t the reception lounge..

      Recommended for anyone looking for a short, cheap room when visiting wellington”
      I am very impressed - Got a room (704) with a great view of the habour. The size of the room is big for how much I paid. Only comment is that the water pressure is poor and room walls isnt sound proof. But it didnt bother me at all especially for how cheap the room is. Staff are friendly and its an all around good stay.

      Overpriced, cramped rooms with poor facilities ”
      Hostel is way to expensive for what you get. I stayed in a 6 bed dorm and the room was tiny, barely fitted the 3 bunk beds in, so once you added 6 people and luggage it was very cramped to say the least. The rooms do not have power sockets next to each bed, which I think is a basic need of any hostel, which would result in everyone sharing 3 or 4 plug sockets that was located near 1 of the beds. Not ideal. Hostel was noisy day and night and the window didn't shut properly in room so it was always cold. Never had a good nights sleep here over the whole week I stayed. It's a big and impersonal hostel. You have to pay to access WiFi anywhere but reception. And the wifi isn't great, it's pretty slow and during peak times would constantly disconnect or lose connectivity for long moments at a time. Not cool when you've paid extra for it. The showers would go cold frequently whilst you were using them, especially at night. Pros: location and not much else.
