My first time in a backpackers...as an over 50 y old woman and I had my doubts! But this place was great. Staff were friendly and helpful. Yes there were naturally a lot of youngsters and good for them but there was no partying. Building is old...but is cleaned well. All I needed was somewhere to sleep at night and...

The room was OK, staff are nice and helpful. However, it is nott the cleanest place. I'm talking about the bathroom. We were with a car and it was a nightmare to find a parking spot in the center. The hostel offers a car park, but it is 20$ per night. So if you are with a car I would...

The rooms are very cramped and there are not enough toilets. OK for young singles or couples on a shoestring budget. There is free wifi. It gets quite noisy at night with partying backpackers. The ONLY advantage is it's very central location!

Me and my friend have just finished our stay at the trek global backpacker. We stayed at the purple floor in a double room. Overall, it's a thumbs up. What I like: Friendly and helpful staff, location, value for money, free games area What I don't like: Cold freezing shower, slightly humid room, poor noise insulation (if someone or a...

Definitely not the best hostel I've stayed in, but not the worst. This is not an ideal hostel if you are looking to be involved in activities or necessarily meet many people. Also, the bathrooms were not always the most clean.

This place is truly like a second home to me. Stayed at two different times long term and a couple days here and there. Staff are very friendly and make you feel welcome, answering any queries you have and giving great local knowledge. Purple wing - the most quiet wing so go here if you want peace and quiet Orange...

My girlfriend and I came up to Wellington to see the last show in the Wearable arts season. It was going to be a push to get back to Christchurch on the Sunday night so we stayed the night in Wellington. Trek Global turned out to be perfect for our needs. Noise was a problem (heavy doors banged late at...

The hostel is in a good location and has unlimited wifi (rare in NZ) but it is the noisiest hostel we have stayed at. It is quite unfortunate that there is building work going on across the road and the windows only seem to open exceptionally wide. This also poses a problem when people drinking downstairs go outside to smoke....

We were four friends in double rooms, creaky beds, but clean linen. Kitchen and bathrooms conveniently on each floor level. Bathrooms are well designed, with each a basin, shower & toilet. Liked the lounge, but was too busy exploring the city to really make use of it. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We appreciated the free storage on...

We have a hard working team of housekeepers who clean the kitchens and bathrooms several times a day, so I am sorry these were not up to your standard while you were here. We do welcome guests to bring any complaints or issues to our...
