Peter Redman

17 March 2010 Peter would recommend this property

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.

Liked: best location in town, great kitchen, tv room and pool area. Try not to get a room overseeing the harbour nor a room close to the elevators as they are very very noisy...
