Liked: Super well equipped including excellent lockers with sockets inside them, hairdryers and even hair straighteners, and anything and everything you might need in the kitchen. Staff was very friendly and helpful too. Great place to stay, especially after I heard some dodgy stories about other hostels in Wellington.

Disliked: The atmosphere and sociability lacking a bit as in every big hostel.

Liked: The kitchen is well equipped. Guests use it constantly and respectfully. Tables are used by everyone for socializing and for eating. Families with children look comfortable as do singles.

Disliked: Heating and moisture are somewhat unpleasant - or rather trying to achieve a comfortable temperature with radiant heaters and mopping up condensation, depending on the room.

Disliked: Pillows were really flat.
