Best pancakes of Welly in the morning”
Great pancakes in the morning, the place is really clean and the atmosphere is amazing. Cheap drinks in blend and amazing tournament of beerpong with great prizes. The receptions.. Lissita had great taste of music with the check in.
Kia Ora, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, especially such a great one! We are happy to hear that we were able to create such a good hostel experience for you. Our awesome team always tries their best to keep our guests entertained, no matter if at reception on check in or in our bar Blend. We thought it would be great to start the day for our guests with free and fresh pancakes, and we are happy that you have enjoyed them! We look forward to seeing you again and wish you all the best.
PATHETIC SMALL ROOMS”
Rooms are so small that entire space gets over with luggage in 4 bed. No ventilation for fresh air. Bunk beds are pathetic
It was a nice hostel, but I stayed there for two nights, and on the second night I came back to find my towels and slippers on the floor, all my toiletries gone, and my bed had been changed, and no one had told me who had done it, which was an unpleasant experience.
Kia Ora, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are glad that you liked our facilities and overall enjoyed your stay with us. We are sorry to hear though that you have lost some of your belongings. After investigating this further with out staff members we couldn't find any of your lost items. Whenever things are left behind in a room, housekeeping brings everything to reception, where we store it in our lost and found for at least two weeks. After having again a look through we couldn't find anything. If you want to discuss this further, feel free to contact us. We hope you will give us another chance to impress you and that we will see you soon again.
Free dinner was a big plus, and there was some free WiFi available in some parts of the hostel, contrary to what others have said. I guess this is a recent addition. Rooms were nice enough, though the beds were a touch noisy. Kitchen is reasonably well equipped but quite small for the size of the hostel
staff got 3rd hand”
the staff took my wine w/o my notification, until i pack my luggage, i only found out my wine was lost, then i went to the reception request to make police report & refer to cctv, then the staff only told me that they "kept" my wine in store room due to dorm is not allow to put wine. but the problem is i saw many of the roommate also put the wine under the bed or floor, then why they just "kept" mine but not all of them?
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are a dry hostel, if we find alcohol we do confiscate it because we do not have a license to have guests drinking in their rooms. We hope you will stay with us here again and hope you enjoyed the rest of your travels.
Very cold room. As a result, I felt sick. ”
I went reception to report that heater is not working in the room. A guy from the reception came to see it, then he knew that room had a problem with the heater before also. He told me he will inform the maintenance guy, but he fail to move me to another room. I expect he will give me one heater but he didn't. After whole night sleeping in the cold room I feel sick next day.
Squeaky beds ”
Not really good money, because there are to many bad points. The WiFi is HORRIBLE, you barely (often not) can use basic apps like Reddit,Instagram, Twitter, etc. Spotify and Youtube Music is also not possible. The beds are super squeaky and were not long enough for me. The aircon is our room, was a portable one, and it was quite loud. The bathroons are okay. Cleanliness could be improved. Also everything could be more modern. They have free pancakes in the morning (until 9 AM). Also there's a free meal in the early evening. The kitchen is useable, nothing fancy.
The staff are really welcoming. There’s loads on offer there especially the free pancakes for breakfast. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Blend bar next door is excellent- we had two steaks for $30 and they were delicious. Totally recommend Nomads Wellington.
Kia Ora Angela, Thank you for taking the time to write a review about us. We are pleased you enjoyed our free food for breakfast, welcoming staff, and fantastic value for money food at our bar next door! We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us and look forward to you staying with us again. Kind regards, Hostel Management.
twin room with private bathroom”
Good: friendly staffs. Room was well maintained, neat and clean. comfortable beds. spacious bathroom. clean kettle and with coffee and tea packs. complimentary dinner beside the hostel. bad: no free wifi in the rm unless u purchase at $4 for 24hrs unlimited data but at ground floor. no hairdryer in bathroom. heater is quite weak to warm up the room during winter time. luckily the blankets was giving me the warmth through my sleep. overall, gd experience for a one night stay over.
Hey Guang, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! We are happy you enjoyed your stay with us. We do have free wifi in all the common areas. You can rent hairdryers from reception, you must leave a form of ID as a deposit. We hope you will stay with us again! Cheers, Kitty
I had an amazing time here, meeting many great travelers and friends. The hostel is clean and has everything you need, including free pancake mix in the morning and a small free meal in the bar next door, which has amazing prices that I have yet to find matched in Wellington, as well as great bar staff that's always up for a laugh and chat to you. The slightly squeaky beds and occasional mishap are definitely worth it for the friendly staff, that's always tried their best to make me feel valued and heard with every complaint I've had. I've stayed here for roughly three months in total and have not regretted a day. Shout-out to Ryan in the hostel and Glenn in the bar. It was great fun spending my time with you
Hey Elena, Glad you had such a great stay with us and thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! We look forward to having you stay again in the future. Cheers Kitty
Good location ”
Walking distance to the few things to do in town. Not Far from the mount Victoria walk, which is nice. Worth noting that the hostel state they are dry and don't allow any alcohol on the premises, which we didn't know in advance.
Hi, thanks for taking the time to write us a review and we do hope to see you again! Cheers - Assistant hostel manager
Location is fabulous, the dormbeds are comfortable (although really squeaky), bathrooms and toilets are always tidy, there's always hot water and the water pressure is excellent. However kitchen teatowels definitely need to be changed more often (even the clean ones just look so worn out and sort of dirty). And having to keep your keycard in the reader to have electricity in the room is very annoying, since you need your keycard even just to go to the bathroom and get back into your room. But the main issue for me was that even though there are fans in the rooms, the air just doesn't move (dorm rooms have a tiny window that opens to a high-rise courtyard, no air really comes in) and it feels really muggy (it was summer but not hot at all outside).
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We appreciate the feedback as we are constantly trying to improve and will continue to do so. We hope you will stay with us here again and hope you enjoyed the rest of your travels.
My boyfriend stayed in the dorm here on our first few days in Wellington and everything was great - I've stayed at all hostels in Wellington and this is by far the best and best value! Super clean, free dinner which is the best!!! cheap drinks and PERFECT location!
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We appreciate the great review. We hope you will stay with us here again and hope you enjoy the rest of your travels.
4 dorms are...”
they upgraded my 8 dorm room, to a 4 dorm with shower and toilet inside. the room was ok but not much space for the backpacks. The hostel has a great location, clean but a small kitchen. They provide free breakfast, pancake mix that always sticks in the pan.
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We agree the location is great. We provide two free meals daily to compensate for the kitchen being on the small side. We appreciate the feedback as we are constantly trying to improve and will continue to do so. We hope you will stay with us here again and hope you enjoyed the rest of your travels.
Awesome spot in an awesome location”
Central location, clean en-suite toilet and very friendly staff. Front desk is open 24 hours, unlike many hostels I've been to in New Zealand. Food options are plenty in the location. Very recommended!
Perfect for what we wanted”
I went to Wellington with 2 teens for a weekend. We all had to be in 1 room because the under 18s were not allowed in a dorm, but the staff member who checked us in was very helpful in finding us an alternative to what we had booked. The pub next door with snack sized meal included in our room rate was a real plus - we upgraded to full meal for $2 and it was good value and a nice atmosphere to have a drink and relax. The room standard was good with towels and bedding provided. Good value.
Good central location, free tea/coffee, free pancake mix at breakfast, and free dinner / cheap drinks next door. 4bed ensuite very cramped - struggled for space to fit 4 peoples bags without treading on each others stuff, shower had drainage issues. 6bed dorm more spacious but less comfortable beds.
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay here with us! If you had mentioned to reception about the drain being blocked we would have fixed it for you. We hope you will stay with us here again and hope you enjoyed the rest of your travels.
Friendliest Staff - Subpart facilities- Great location”
In the center of the city and with the friendliest staff i've seen. It is a great place indeed. However, the wifi has to be purchased, that is the only thing I will fix in this place. It is only a few dollars, but still. But the friendly staff and perfect location makes it worh it
Hey Jose, Glad the staff were so friendly and we agree the location is great. We do provide free wifi in all the common areas alternatively you can purchase wifi for your room for $4 per 24 hours or $12 for the week. We hope to see you again! Cheers, Kitty
My Second Nomads Stay Experience”
This is my second time experiencing Nomads. My first was in Queenstown. My experience with Nomads Wellington is interesting since this is my first time being with strangers. I can say that the facilities here is just average. I think they can improve more in terms of assigning solo travelers like me to a lesser group of people. Also, breakfast was not available during my stay. This should not be advertised in the website. They offered me free coffee and dinner voucher but the voucher was not given to me by the receptionist.
Kia Ora Leomer Thank you for taking the time to write a review about us. We apologize that you weren't happy staying in a dorm by yourself with a group of people. If you had come down to reception we could have moved you to a different room. I think there was a bit of miscommunication in relation to the breakfast, we do offer free breakfast. Our kitchen was out of order over the weekend so we weren't able to offer pancakes which is why we offered free continental breakfast instead. We hope you give us another chance to impress you. Kind regards
Kia Ora, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are pleased that you had such a great stay at our hostel and are glad that we could create such an enjoyable experience for us. We hope that we will see you again when you are in Wellington again! Safe travels and all the best.
