A great hostel. Fact!
I was only meant to stay here for a few weeks whilst searching for work and a flat in Wellington, but loved it so much I stayed here for many months. The owners are some of the most genuine, caring people you could meet and it's easy to see why many of the guests feel part of a family immediately when arriving at World Wide. One of my favourite aspects of the hostel is it's size. Because you're all together in close quarters, it means you have to get along with one another and socialise. Some of the larger hostels i've stayed in lack that intimacy that makes a hostel feel warm and inviting, like a hostel should be.
I'd recommend anyone to this hostel as it has been an amazing experience. Free breakfast, unlimited wifi, easy going owners, fantastic guests (a lot of French!), I love this place and it is a second home to me. As Andy the owner says, 'it's all about the guests'. If coming on a Friday, you may be lucky enough to involve yourself in a 'cross-drink' experience, or 'ab/burpee challenge'. Stay at this hostel, you will not regret it!
