I can't really fault this place at all: it has it all and more. Immaculatley clean throughout, friendly staff and amazing facilities - this place has got the backpacker formula nailed. There are two huge kitchens with ample storage and fridge space which means you're never falling over anyone while cooking or clearing up. There are 2 spacious dining areas, a reading/games room and a huge TV lounge with a projector screen. The rooms (we stayed in a 6 bed dorm) are spacious with plenty of space for all your belongings. Me and my girlfriend were seriously impressed with this place, so much so, we didn't want to leave! You're right in the heart of Wellington, and you can literally walk to all amenities in the city. The hostel is also across the road from a big supermarket, so need to be lugging bags too far!
Loved the fact that you can drink in the hostel, and yet the policy isn't by any means abused, i.e. there is nobody walking around hammered! It was also cool to see that the variance in age groups staying here - from school kids on a trip, to elderly couples touring New Zealand.
Can't recommend enough!
