    We had a 4 bedroom with an own bathroom - clean, big room, window to open, quiet on the floor. That was everything we needed. Ok, matraces really need a renewal but were ok for 2 nights. Staff should be more friendly when checking out and we could not store our luggage for free for some hours, But you can pay for lockercoins. The stay that close to harbour, station and Centre city was reale worth the price! We didnt use the opportunity to check out the bar and breakfast, but was cheap!

    Was really nice to stay here and have a good night's sleep after almost 30 hours on the plane. The location just opposite the train station was perfect for my ongoing trip and from the airport its just one bus ride. Only downside: my room had a shared bathroom attached to it but the lock was not working really well and my neighbor could just walk into my room if I was in the shower. And there was a questionable stain on my sheets. Otherwise a really good opportunity to stay with a low budget.

    Nahe am Hafen/ an der Fähre. Wir hatten ein eigenes Bad anschließend an unser 6-Bett-Zimmer. Gebäude, Zimmer und Bad schon etwas abgewohnt, aber trotzdem sauber. Große Gemeinschaftsküche, allerdings im Großküchenstil. Gibt aber auch die Möglichkeit Essen zu kaufen. Keine Schließfächer. Absolut in Ordnung für ein paar Nächte, vor allem, wenn man früh zur Fähre will.

    Good for a night just passing through Wellington as the Hostel is close to the station and ferry terminals. Otherwise it is very generic and not that well cared for. Worst bed/mattress of my entire trip.

    Für eine Nacht billig in Ordnung - vor allem, wenn man den Shuttle zur Fähre nehmen will. Zimmer war dunkel, stickig und die Matratze furchtbar durchgelegen. Das "Continental Breakfast" war überteuert und absolutes Minimum.

    Im Badezimmer funktionierte 1 von 4 Lampen, die Dusche war entweder eiskalt oder brühend heiß. In der Küche gibt es nicht einmal Tee. Das Essen im "Cafe" ist eher bescheiden und überteuert. Einzig die Lage macht das Hostel bei Fähr-/Busfahrten wirklich attraktiv. Für 1 Nacht ok (mit Glück mit ZimmerbewohnerInnen, die nicht schnarchen oder stinken) - für mehr aber auch nicht.

    Weird atmosphere... and more old people (due to the hotel) then backpacker. Kitchen was not very clean and cutlery very old. The rooms tho were alright and quiet clean and the location was alright... we liked the part at "Cuba-st." more, in the hostel-area were some weird guys on the street at night.

    The location was dirty and very old. They kitchen was messy, dirty and not inviting to cook, to common rooms were cold and the personal was totally unfriendly. The card for our room door needed to be reactivated 4 times. The bathrooms were okay, the beds also okay. Would not recommend it, but for one night okay
