    Awesome location and excellent staff. But this is an old and very noisy building. When you're on the wrong side of, loud traffic noise will keep you up all night. This was no problem on a previous visit, but this time it was awful. It's the same problem with light from outside and heat on a sunny day.

    The location is great and there are lots of facilities. But the beds in the dorms are not good. It's very noisy and very hot. And the bathrooms are not always clean. I chose this hostel because of the vicinity of the train and bus station. If I would look for a good hostel in Wellington, I'd go somewhere else

    Pretty good hostel. Staff is helpful, depending on who's working, but can't tell you anything about how to get to the airport (bus, taxi etc.). Beds are not bad, but not very good either, their alright for one or two knights. Bar is nice and cooking/eating facilities are pretty good. Everything was clean enough for the money you pay for it. Would go again if I had to spend a night or two in Wellington. Location is very good, near the CBD.

    It was ok to stay. But WAY to expensive for the thing you got or the place in the city. Beds we're either creaky or way to soft, small rooms, no drying facilities for laundry, far out of the city (although the walk along the waterfront wasn't to bad), huge kitchen but no extras like cooking oil.

    De sfeer in dit hostel is ongezellig. Het personeel achter de balie is helemaal niet vriendelijk. De kamers en faciliteiten waren prima, maar dat is beslist niet het belangrijkste. Prima om te overnachten maar niet voor een leuk verblijf.

    Arrived at 7 PM and my reservation was not correctly in their system so my room wasn’t ready. Had to wait long at the desk cause it was busy. Went to my room and the bed was NOT clean. Hair on the linen. Simply the worst what can happen. However, I have to say the Housekeeping lady Kaya was lovely. She was amazing and fixed it right away. Kitchen is very dirty. The floor is really disgusting. That show’s me that they don’t really care? Location is good if you need to get a train or ferry.

    It was close to the ferry and busstation. Thats why I stayed here. The staff was nice, but the place was not nice. It was old, not really clean, a lobby in my room so people were talking really early. For me, it's okayish if you've been in Wellington before and just need a short night between the ferry and a local bus.
