A lot of the highly-rated hostels in Wellington were booked out, and we just booked Trek Global as we were getting a little desperate for a place to stay - we were there for four nights. The facilities are fine, but extremely crowded - the communal area/kitchen for our wing was full of people from 8 am to 11 pm (or later), who were often very noisy and "took over" the space - this isn't the hostel's fault (they obviously can't control who books into the hostel!) but it might be a good idea to send around hostel staff at 11 pm each night (when the communal areas are supposed to "close") to ensure the place is quiet - our area often had parties going (including beer pong...) late into the night, which made sleep difficult, and also made it tough to eg cook dinner or get a glass of water at night. Our room was a bit grim (not much natural light) but fine. The bathrooms were clean enough. The kitchen had no communal supplies (eg oil, salt, pepper) which is a little unusual but not a big deal. The location was good - 20 minute walk from train/bus/ferry station, five minute walk from supermarket. So overall an OK hostel, but our experience was tainted a little by the loud kids partying each night near our room (or perhaps we are just getting too old and grumpy for hostel life??).
