Liked: Everything - clean, centrally located, great kitchen facilities, loads of internet/computers, meals on offer, activites booked, knowledgable staff. Extended stay for another 3 days. Great place to chill out and spend some time planning the north island.

Disliked: The top bunk beds are too low so when you sit up from the bottom bunk you bang your head!

Liked: en-suite rooms

Disliked: poor water pressure resulting in a very poor shower in romm 606. Hostel was full and facilities stretched to the extent that it was almost dangerous working in the kitchen and difficult to get a table to eat my dinner.

Liked: Very friendly staff, clean facilities, lots of options for room types (dorm, single, double), and free espresso in the morning!

Disliked: It was VERY noisy - trying to go to bed was really difficult because the windows didn't shield the noise from the traffic, and I was woken up in the morning from honking and sirens.

Liked: It was clean, easily accessible, well-run and located within easy walking distance of just about everything I wanted to see and do in Wellington.

Disliked: Wifi is run on a 24-hour basis, with set beginning and end times - if you miss them, you're not really getting everything you're paying for.

11 November 2011 James would recommend this property

Liked: Clean and well equipped rooms, if a little utilitarian.

Disliked: The reception staff were pretty rude. The girl checking us in answered the phoned halfway through and kept us waiting, and then kept rolling her eyes at the person they'd just answered the phone too! It was expensive for what it was, the Ibis hotel was only a few blocks away and probably not much more expensive.

Liked: The best YHA until now. Really good hostel with a nice and complete kitchen. Def stay here if you want a relaxed stay. Nice beds and rooms.

Disliked: Only thing I dont like about YHA is the 3 dollars they ask extra if you re not member. Please give then the correct rate and not the member rate on hostelbookers or world.
