Liked: -Luce como un hotel, el edificio donde se encuentra emplazado en Wellington es muy lindo. -Instalaciones comfortables, limpias y modernas. Me hospede en una habitacion de 10 personas que era realmente muy tranquila, espaciosa y limpia. -Ascensor -Los banios estaban tambien en muy buenas condiciones, frente a las estaciones. La cocina y el area comun se encuentran muy bien equipadas. Es un plus contar con los panqueques para prepararse por la maniana, uno de los dias tambien habia tostadas. Tambien hay cafe y te gratis. Todo esto es muy util cuando uno viaja con bajo presupuesto. La ubicacion es genial, a pasos del centro de Wellington y unos 15 minutos caminando desde la terminal de ferry. Negativo que haya que pagar por el wifi, es hora que un hostel como Nomads que se promueve como 5 estrellas, ofrezca wifi gratuito.

Disliked: -Hay que pagar por el wifi

Liked: Normal amount of space in rooms, lockers (*not often in NZL) , kitchen semi-spacious, nice tv room.

Disliked: Very dirty showers, clogged (all 3 nights I was there). Also all beds very noisy so that the entire room wakes up when 1 person turns over :s ... not too handy. and the "Free breakfast" Really means free mix and a fight for a pan in the morning... if you get up and are there before 9... so don't expect too much of it. So far the first hostel where I was slightly disappointed given the good reviews it has. (After 1 month NZL)

Liked: Very central. Clean and comfortable. Quiet dorm room with not a lot of noise filtering through from neighbouring bar.

Disliked: The bed in my 4 bedded dorm (room 213) was very creeky and made noise upon every little movement. The mattresses were also quite thin, and you could at times feel the base of the bed.

Liked: The location! The bathroom was clean

Disliked: I stayed on a Sunday night after 3 busy nights and was hoping to get some quiet time. The bar was below my room (I was on first floor) and it was so loud it felt like I was next door, it was like a night club and it went on all night. Make sure you are not located on the first floor.
