Liked: Reception area was nice and clean with a wide variety of leaflets. Also free luggage storage came in handy. Lots of toilets and showers!

Disliked: Although the over all feel was quite grand for a hostel and staff were very friendly this was somewhat spoilt by the many notices informing guests in the hostel part of the hotel of impending fines and camera watching you in public areas, couldn't help but feel a "second class" citizen compared to the hotel side of things. Also, the fact you had to pay a deposit for plates and cutlery did not make us feel very comfortable. However, they do offer an hour of free wifi for a good review...

Liked: A great hostel to stay! As a backpacker I really felt very much respected by the very informative staff. Also the facilities are great. The rooms were clean and the hallway had beautiful carpet (yes, it makes you feel like you're staying in the hotel instead of the hostel when you walk there).

Disliked: No free Wifi, but maybe that was just a bit too much to ask.

Liked: Bathrooms were plentiful and kept very clean, 4 bed dorm had a lot of space and was tidy and modern. Friendly staff.

Disliked: Very noisy at night, we were kept up until 1pm on Tuesday night with people screaming, laughing and slamming doors. Staff didn't seem at all bothered. Wednesday night there was extremely loud music and talking on a microphone from the attached pub. We wouldn't have minded if it was the weekend but we had a lot of interviews and early starts and did not appreciate being kept up at night! Kitchen was also very small with hardly any room to store food.

Family Holiday

30 April 2013

Liked: central located. big rooms (we had an ensuite room with private bathroom and toilet) big tv. free wifi for the guests each day clean towels, even if you did NOT throw them on the ground (which is a sign that you want new towels.)

Disliked: extremely thin glass in the windows. our room was situated at the road side. the traffic was so noisy that we actually checked 3 times if there really was no window open. a firedepartment nearby, so very frequently sirenes to be heard. (also at night) the toilet kept running. mentioned that to the guy at the reception. he said they would fix it. we stayed here 3 nights and when we left it still was not fixed. below our room there was a bar. with loud music untill 02.00 am. and on sunday (!!!) at 7.00 am they came collecting the garbage. ofcourse ALSO just beneath our window. i had the worse nightrest of the vacation in this hotel. ow, and what i disliked also very much, was the really bad parking possibilities in wellington. this hotel did not have their own parking spot (some other hostels nearby DO have them) so we had to park about a mile away. and wellington has really very steep streets. walking those for about a mile with heavy suitcases and handluggage is really no fun!

Liked: The showers are amazing! I've stayed in so many hostels and I think these are the best I've come across! Always hot and great pressure and the cubicles are nice, clean and hotel-like. The staff were very helpful when I asked to move to a smaller room and reception is 24hours so you can chill there and read late in the evening. Also the beds were comfy and solid so no creaking or wobbling from your bunk mate.

Disliked: The walls are partition so when the doors slam it's really loud. Also the kitchen is pretty small with not much work surface which is fine when it's quiet but harder to make dinner when everyone's trying to prep their food too.

Liked: Location was great.

Disliked: Noise from other rooms was pretty horrendous. Once folk are turned out of the kitchen at midnight, the only place to go is their rooms and as the walls don't reach ceiling height, noise goes right through the place until well, the time I'm usually getting out of bed!

Liked: Staff were really helpful as we were 2 girls put with 6 rowdy men so we complained and got put in a 4 girls room for no extra cost! Location good, fairly quiet even though there's a pub. Pub does a $2 eggs on toast yum!

Disliked: That 2 girls were put with 6 men in the first place! Kitchen and sofa area is combined so it's too noisy to watch tv!
