I stayed here for one night in February, 2017, ahead of catching the North to South Island ferry. The staff were very friendly and provided a warm welcome, also helping me to book a shuttle bus ticket for the Interislander ferry. Overall, this YHA provides a typical brand deal: my dorm was clean and the bed was comfortable. Although the...

Hey Callcrookie Thanks for your review! I hope you had a smooth sailing over to the South Island after resting easy with us here in the City. I understand the stainless steel bench tops can appear slightly clinical but they’re just more convenient for our housekeepers to keep clean every day. I’ll inform our staff you appreciated their service and...

Nice en suite room. Very small but clean. We were a bit worried when we found that earplugs had been left for us by the kettle, but we had a good nights sleep apart from the gale force winds whistling through the windows. Nice place to stay in an expensive city.

Hey Jancrow Thank you for your review. I’m sorry that you found the room to be a tad small but I’m pleased you liked it. The earplugs are there just as a precaution so it’s a relief you didn’t need them despite the crazy wind that Wellington can receive. Make sure you pop back and see us again next time!...

It was our second time in Wellington. First we have tried private accommodation. This year we wanted a little change. We have stayed only for one night. It is great hostel with superb facilities, friendly staff and great location to explore Wellington. Would definitely recommend it!

This was one of the better places I stayed in while in New Zealand. Rooms and bathrooms were clean and the staff was very friendly. Location is great, there is so much to see and do close by. I would recommend this to anyone traveling to Wellington on a budget.
