29 November 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: compared to other hostels in nz it was a little more expensive - but since it is located in wellington that might be the reason for the higher price. there is no free parking!! you have to pay 5 dollars per day in a voucher parking zone 10 minutes walk away!
