  • The hostel was in very poor condition. The bathrooms were falling apart and had mould all the walls. There was graffiti all over too. I have traveled all over the east coast of Australia and this hostel was the worst I have ever stayed ine

  • This is what might be called a "dive" hostel. Because of the price (lowest in Wellington), this should probably be expected. The mattresses were thin, the bathing facilities were dirty, the washing machine was broken, and the kitchen was ill equipped. The staff was good, but they seemed to be spread a bit thin. If the owners of the hostel would invest more into the building, this could be a nicer place. As of now, though, it is just low cost tenement housing.

  • Good value for money overall. Not the cleanest hostel and could do with a paint job in places. Noise not an issue.

  • Ridiculously overpriced, horrendously unclean, door didn't have a handle and staff was very rude when confronted, staff in general seemed unable to perform simple duties and not suited for the job, room was wrongly indicated on website, room had mould on the ceiling and a lot of dust, facilities were in a very poor state of repair and too few for the amount of rooms. Would definitely spend a few more dollars on a better hostel or even hotel!
