  • Basic rooms. Particularly impressed with the bathrooms. Friendly, quick check in and out by staff. Besides it being hard to sleep because always at a backpackers people are getting it on. But not yha's fault. 5

  • First time i've stayed in a yha and it definitely won't be the last. Location is perfect, just a few steps to the bars and restaurants and not many more steps to the shops. Room and bathroom facilities very clean, and as many have said before "fantastic kitchen". . 5

  • Great location close to everything you would want (inc a supermarket open til midnight). The afternoon we arrived there was a powercut but the staff were helpful and welcoming (despite the huge amount of stress). Only complaints - I think the powercut may have prevented some cleaning taking place - the room was a bit smelly and very hot and the towels were dirty. However the bed was comfortable and kitchen/dining area were great! 5

  • Our stay was great, I only wish I new more about what the YHA had to offer. Next time i'll check in first, talk to friendly staff about what to do. (Not walking around the streets getting worn out and confussed) I had first thought YHA was just a place to crash at night, but in fact it is a pretty cool place to hang out. 4

  • One member of staff gave me incorrect travel info. The bus to the Interislander ferry from platform 9 at the train station is free. The bus to the train station costs $1. Therefore there is no need to get a taxi costing $15 to the ferry. 5

  • This hostel has a great location (right in downtown Wellington and across the street from an excellent New World grocery store) and every amenity you could ask of a hostel – from two well equipped kitchens and dining areas to a media room with projector to a library / reading room to washers and dryers to bikes for hire (though only two). The hostel is very large, however, and if they have no vacancies it can be challenging to prepare a meal during conventional meal times. Our room was quite small and bare, with no shelves or dressers or alarm clock. The bathroom and the rest of the hostel were all quite clean. Free bagels on Monday morning was a bonus. 5

  • Great facilities, especially the kitchens, very well equipped. Very central and the supermarket opposite is handy but if you have a car, parking can be a NIGHTMARE. Also can be noisy - street noise and was woken at 3am by people in a nearby room who yelled and laughed until about 5am. Shared bathroom was clean 5

  • The staff obviously had no records of booking from the travel bug,however, she had provided another room with " concrete view". It is strongly recommended to confirm and bring your receipt of booking before departure in busy season. 5
