Liked: It is on a very convenience location. I took the $8 airport flyer and got off at Courteney Pl. Opposite the hostel is a big New World Supermarket. Staff were friendly and I was given a 4 beds share dorm on the 6th Fl.(Room 606). It has a en suit to share. Room view facing across the water which was very delightful. This is the 4th time I stayed at this hostel. Would highly recommend it to anybody.

Disliked: nothing at all.

Liked: Fab location not far from the Te Papa museum, various chilling out spaces and decent-sized kitchens, which were very well-equipped. Hairdryers in the girls bathrooms = bonus. Standard YHA stuff really!

Disliked: Quite big so lacked atmosphere and character.

Liked: This place is great, definitely the best hostel I've ever stayed in. Only stayed for one night so didn't get the chance to use the kitchen and common rooms but sure they were like the rest of the hostel - amazing! Loads of information on things to do, everything was clean, and the place was lovely and warm - a must in a Wellington winter!

10 June 2010 Sam would recommend this property

Liked: YHA Welly has a lot of pluses, but my favourite were;- Its location is perfect for a 2min stroll to bars and restaurants galore, Te Papa museum, swimming baths, shopping district, central bus links, New World etc etc- The '100 things to do' lists for 'free' and 'rainy day' activities were excellent and filled with good ideas- The commitment to the environment is top notch for a city based, large hostel.

Liked: A nice hostel, more like a hotel but this means it is also more difficult to interact with other travellers as it is so big. The double rooms on the 6th floor were a good size and the staff were friendly and helpful.

Liked: The YHA Wellington is located in a very good location that I travel on the Airbus($8)from the airport to Courtaney Pl. approx 15 mins. Very clean bathroom with strong water pressure. I cooked my meal .... and the New World supermarket is there opposit the road. I went to Micheal Fowler Centre for the concert that night it's only 10 mins walk from the hostel. There are many nice Thai restaurant around too! Very friendly staff and I will definitely stay there again when I go to Wellington.
