helpful staff
slight hiccups with the booking changes as a result of incorrect messages provided by YHA staff in Auckland, and the staff in Wellington was very helpful to sort things out without charging me extra. Didn't like the split kitchen setup though, prefer the large centralized one in Auckland better. Lost some of my food/groceries as they were "mistakenly" taken by others from the fridge... enjoy the free and guided city tour and Mt Vic hike too!
