It was warm. Even when it was really cold outside the whole building was warm, from the bathrooms to the dorms to the kitchen/dining area.

-Luce como un hotel, el edificio donde se encuentra emplazado en Wellington es muy lindo. -Instalaciones comfortables, limpias y modernas. Me hospede en una habitacion de 10 personas que era realmente muy tranquila, espaciosa y limpia. -Ascensor -Los banios estaban tambien en muy buenas condiciones, frente a las estaciones. La cocina y el area comun se encuentran muy bien equipadas. Es un plus contar con los panqueques para prepararse por la maniana, uno de los dias tambien habia tostadas. Tambien hay cafe y te gratis. Todo esto es muy util cuando uno viaja con bajo presupuesto. La ubicacion es genial, a pasos del centro de Wellington y unos 15 minutos caminando desde la terminal de ferry. Negativo que haya que pagar por el wifi, es hora que un hostel como Nomads que se promueve como 5 estrellas, ofrezca wifi gratuito.

It was cheap, there was free breakfast, the first 2 nights we were upgraded to a double room as they had double booked the 3 bed dorm.
