    Das große Hostel ist es erstaunlich gut geführt, empfehle es. 6-Bett Zimmer f. Frauen inkl. angrenzendes Bades sehr sauber, ebenso Eingangsbereich und Flur. Küche hat mangelnde Ausstattung, es fehlten komplett die Gabeln u. einige Schüsseln. Einige Nutzer hinterlassen Kochfelder sehr schmutzig, trocknen u. räumen abgewaschene Geschirr nicht weg - sehr unverständlich!!! Ein/e Aufpasser/in wäre angebracht! Schließfächer f. Wertsachen sollten länger als 8 Std (4$) sein! Bahnhof ist gegenüber!

    A big hostel that has everything you need but not much more than that - located conveniently across the road from the station and served me well as a cheap place to spend the night. Clean and nothing to complain about, does not have any hostel atmosphere though.

    Friendly Stuff and room were clean. But there were drunk people in front of the Hostel/Hotel. I would never go alone downstairs as a woman.

    This hostel is perfect if you arrive late and wanna leave Wellington early. Otherwise I would not recommend it. The fridge smelled like trash and was pretty disgusting and sleeping in a 20 bed dorm wasn't the best thing ever. On the other hand - what do you expect for a price like this..

    Es war schrecklich! Das 6-Bett-Zimmer ist viel zu klein wenn jeder einen Koffer dabei hat kann man keinen Schritt mehr tun. Die Fenster kann man nur minimal öffnen, wodurch man im Zimmer fast erstickt, die Atmosphäre war aggressiv und angespannt, ich habe in diesem Hostel kaum geschlafen. Für den geringen Preis kann man kaum etwas verlangen, ich würde aber jedem davon abraten. Das einzig positive ist die Lage direkt am Bahnhof.

    It was dirty and stunk. The kitchen was horrible, dirty dishes everywhere. The fridge, which was a room, smelled so gross of rotting and decaying food that I almost had to faint. A lot of the people who stayed there were actually homeless, but because the Hostel offered a really low weekly rent, they could stay there longterm. I chose to check out after my first night. In total, this was my worst Hostelexperience so far.
