04 July 2011 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: We had a beautiful, immaculate room overlooking the bay - more like a hotel. The kitchen was really well-equipped and the communal areas were great. Not the place to go if you want to party but perfect for a good night's sleep!

Disliked: It is quite far out from Wellington, about half an hour on the train but had free parking so was ideal for us.

Oliver Boote

09 March 2010 Oliver would recommend this property

Liked: The hostel has a great setting next to the sea in Plimmerton with a fab view of the sunset from their roomy lounge. Kitchen and dining area were good and our double room was a good size, clean, and with a great view of its own.If you have your own transport then the location out of Wellington really didn't matter - only took 20 mins to get into town.If you need something to occupy you in the evening then they have a couple of portable TVs that you can borrow as well.
