The hotel is well located in the central part of Wellington- close to eateries and restaurants. Very helpful staff. The room was ok, very basic but sufficient. Free coffee and tea available in the room.

This is a quiet place right next to Cuba Street which means it's easy to get around the city. There is a key fob system which makes you feel safe and the check in was fast and easy. Would recommend for a night in Wellington

The hostel is located on a busy street in the heart of the city, right next to the Subway restaurant, a 40 minute long walk from the Manabus stop at the train station, better to take the bus or taxi. The interislander ferry terminal was about 15 minutes away by car. You have to be buzzed in and take the...

We booked a 2 bed apartment and a private room in this location for 5 adults (including my parents in their 60s). I was a bit nervous about it as obviously a lot of young people stay there but it was actually fine. It is really centrally located which is great. The 2 bed was pretty spacious and comfortable. The...

Very basic - noisy location. No breakfast included, central location but in Wellington nothing is too far. Not sure if will be comming back again as there are better deals available around with less music pumping at 3pm in the morning.

This hotel is on the third floor of an office building. Walls and plumbing seemed improvised and in our room one window didn't close well, which, as we were looking out onto the street, resulted in a near sleepless night as it was a Friday night and lots of partying was going on outside. Price was reasonable though as we...

Room had a window into the hall where there was always a light going. So we had to make a curtain using some of our sheets and clothes hangers (still wasn't that effective). It was pretty hot and stuffy with no fans or anything.

For the very cheap price we paid for three nights over a busy long weekend, I was not expecting much. But I was very impressed! We had a double room with shared bathroom. The room was nicely decorated and it was a bonus to have a mini fridge, plus kettle for tea and coffee (although you did have to walk...
