Liked: It was near Te Papa, Mt Victoria, and right across the street from a grocery store. The facilities such as the TV room and the open kitchen and eating area were also nice.

Disliked: The rooms were not vacuumed which was pretty obvious. The Internet was super slow (though free) and whenever I had a question for the front desk there was always a line so it was not that easy to get information. Finally, it is a long walk (45-60 min) from the ferry or naked bus stop.

Liked: The Location of the Wellington Hostel was perfect; grooves in with the CBD. I love the music played - nice blend. They supplied loads of information on activities/sites/events/transport etc. Very Helpful! Also the hostel itself had things like "movie night" --The kitchen area I was very impressed with too!

Disliked: The confusing wifi log on hassle. I insure you there was a high level of impatience in my attempt to join the network and then to had to create an account and credit it? It did not appear free.. There should be!

Liked: I like the central location with the supermarket so close, you can walk everywhere. The chill out area outside in front of the hostel. The staff was friendly and helpful and the toiletts all clear.

Disliked: I didn't like the shower because the water drop out so slowly and you couldn't hang the brush very high :( the powerpoints were to close togeather that you couldn't put two adapters in it at the same time.

Liked: Lots of communal rooms where people can chat and greet other travellers, their complete facilities and their location.

Disliked: Some people on the reception seemed annoyed when we asked more detail questions about things. And they had given wrong direction to find the hotel. Said the hotel was on the opposite of a fire station and that we could ask the Intercity bus driver to drop us off before they made final stop. Truth is, we did not see any fire station near bye (but a hypermarket) and the Intercity bus never get through anywhere near the Courtenay place. We end up taking city bus from the ferry terminal.
