8/10 Very good

I'm not used to bunk rooms but that was not an issue. Room mates came and went quietly and respected others' needs.

2/10 Poor

Didn’t have high hopes as my previous stay in March was pretty hit and miss. Filthy room which STUNK of body odour. Room had clearly not been cleaned in some time. Didn’t feel safe using the room for anything more than sleeping (ie. Couldn’t shower), and was stuck down at reception. Would have checked out immediately if I had a refundable booking. Reception were unable to assist but noted my concerns. There are some significantly better hostels in Wellington City, and I can personally recommend The Dwellington, The Marion, and Trek Global

6/10 Good

Unbelievable front of house staff who encouraged conversations and offered personal recommendations. Property was in a great location, walkable to the Cable Car Station, waterfront and Te Papa Museum (which I highly recommend). We had an ensuite room which was basic but clean. It did however face onto a construction site which started about 7.30am. Might be worth giving guests advance warning so they can perhaps select another option. While there is a great kitchen on the ground floor, it would be lovely to have tea making facilities in the ensuite rooms. Nice bar next door with a happy hour and serves food.
