This large Back-Packer / Hostel is located on east edge of central Welli near the bus / train station. The room was clean and adequate. The kitchen / dining was also adequate. There is parking on the wharf (not free but close by). The Art Deco building is older than the YHA building but has more character. We stayed 2 nights.

Easy to find and get to from the ferry and train station, this large former hotel was well equipped for an easy stay. Close to the main sights. A large restaurant with reasonably priced food. Friendly and helpful reception and bar staff. The large bar was reasonably priced with pool tables and TV, and a Happy Hour.

Picked downtown for its excellent location. Reception staff were not friendly. The double room we booked turned out to be a bunk bed and was expensive. Room was tiny and bathroom really shabby. Kitchen and dining room were good. A university group were booked onto our floor and were having a party in the corridor. Phoned reception at 1030pm to sort it out, they promised they would but actually did nothing. Party eventually ended at 430am. Terrible service will bad mouth this place to everyone.

I needed somewhere cheap to stay before catching a train the next morning. This place was perfect for that. I stayed in one of the 8 bed dorms, comfortable enough on one of the metal framed bunk beds. Staff were friendly and helpful. The 24hr reception was great, as I had to leave early the next morning.

Train Station is just across the road. There's a New World supermarket inside the station. Wagamama's within 10 minute walk away. A shuttle bus ($2) can bring you from the Interislander ferry terminal to the train station.

It has been turned in to a cool backpackerplace. Great big restaurantkitchen wich the guests can use to cook. Only negative thing was one of the staff refused to help to book some tickets because he said he was just covering for a coleague that was on a break. We went to Nomads and baught the tickets there instead with great service.
