    Exceptional”

    This felt more like a hotel than a hostel. I stayed in 6 bed female dorm which was really spacious, clean and had lockers. Bed was comfy. Bathrooms were really clean and well organized. Kitchen was clean though it was quite small and got quite crowded at times even though they had another one as well. It’s super big hostel so it might be hard to make new friends there. Wifi was fast and worked also in a room and staff was nice. Would definitely stay again.

    Great Urban Hostel ”

    This hostel is located right in the heart of Wellington. It gives it a great urban feel, and is centrally located near all the attractions and, for ease of access, many stores. The facility offers many amenities such as a café, kitchen, all the areas that you would expect from a hostel. It was also very clean and tidy. I stayed in a private room, as that was all they had from booking last minute, but even the private room was very comfy and cozy. The staff was very friendly and was kind to note the features as this was my first time staying with them. Overall, it was worth the value. If I was staying a longer stay in Wellington, I would’ve definitely booked a traditional shared room (I love meeting new people).

    rude cleaning staff from korean ”

    their night staff supervisor is very rude and dirty minded they want to have the customers food such as left customers or not labeled food , put some people's food wrongly into the free food section by purpose , try to creat problem between the guests, misunderstandings, if guest lost food comes to reception, they will say the not clearly labeled food was taken by the other guest,and people saw only one side and believed them, actually they want to take and keep the food for themselves like chocolate and ice cream, if the guests don't come to see them in the reception they have good reason to enjoy it, their was one big fridge which you can see it is only staffs food , so guest have no place to food anymore, they collected so many food , more than half of the fridge is their food!

    Great value place to rest your head!”

    Its not a high class place but great value for money and well worth it. I managed to get myself locked out as I didn't arrive until 4AM and they don't have a 24hr reception. Thankfully some nice person let me in and I found my bed for the night! Morel of the story - make sure you call if your going to be there at a strange time as they have a key pad entry door.

    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!

Bad points were there were not enough power points in the room (only 2 and they were in the cupboard) also the shower temperature was very temperamental.

    Great location close the museums, shops and restaurants of Wellington (as well as the beach). Supermarket right over the road. The facilities in the private rooms were really good - a kettle with good quality coffee which is unusual for a YHA. The only downside during our stay was a group of 100 school children who were running up and down the corridors all evening!

Facilities were great - well stocked self-contained kitchens, wifi which worked well even on the 6th floor, appliances supplied in the bathroom, towel hire only $1, and staff were friendly. The location was excellent - 2 supermarkets within 50m, an abundance of restaurants, cinemas, shopping options within walking distance, as well as museum, art gallery and other attractions nearby.

    near the city and tourist attractions, bus station that connects to the airport and a supermarket

    I was there for three nights on my own. It was basically clean and comfortable and I would not expect more from the kind of money I paid for my lodging. The place is situated right in front of New World Supermarket, near to Te Papa Museum and Harbour Front. I could always walk to the city any time I wanted. There is also a bus station that connects to the airport right at the back of the building. I could get my daily supply of coffee and bagel at the reception in the morning for breakfast so everything was fine.

Not far away is the seashore, we spent almost whole day walking along the seashore where lots of restaurants and shopping places.
