About Downtown Backpackers
Situated directly opposite the railway station Downtown Backpackers is ideally located, being the closest hostel to trains, buses and the inter-island ferry, and the new stadium, the city area and Te Papa, Wellington's fabulous Museum of New Zealand.
Downtown Backpackers is located in Wellington's historic Art Deco Waterloo Hotel, a former high class hotel which was chosen for the Queens 1953 Coronation Tour.
This hotel was one of the top hotels in the
Southern Hemisphere in its day. It is a classic example of the podium design of Art Deco architecture and is listed as historically significant by both the Historic Places Trust and the Wellington City Council.
We want Wellington to be a highlight of your NZ experience and we have lots of information to help you to plan your stay.
