    Brilliant Location, staff and facilites

    I fell asleep in the tv room,and got awoken @ 6.30am to a guy who was cleaning, and he wouldnt believe I was staying there despite me giving him my room number and showing him my door key - he insisted on making me feel like an idiot/criminal by taking me to the desk, talking to me like crap, and going through his list!!

    The staff is awasome, very nice and the control the floors and rooms for security and quiet. I really recommend YHA Wellington. Shared facilities, kitchen and bathrooms were very clean, this is fantastic! Keep it like this !

    As for any hostel, I wish that all the travellers were respectful of the othe people and keep quiet, clean. This basic good manners depends on people only. The staff at YHA W is ready to help anytime, if any problems occur.

    There was an error in the booking and instead of booking me for Saturday night as I had done through another online booking system, they book me for Sunday. Once they realised the mistake they were most accomadating, friendly and gave me a good discount. I was happy with the way they handled the matter and the discount but the room was of an inferior standard.

    Excellent staffs Clean and nice room Great location just cross the street you'll find the New World store! (Open 'til midnight) Only 3 minutes to Courteney place where you can find everything.

    Clean, good value for money, central to city sightseeing venues.

    Convenient for central city nightlife and shopping and te papa, excellent helpful and friendly staff, great coffee on site made breakfast easy.

    No complaints but a Foosball table would have been a bonus!...almost booked at a competitor that had one, it was a factor in our search!

    Really great kitchen, perfect location, lovely staff

  • Single

    It was very clean. The staff is also very helpful in general.

    If you get delayed in checking out, one of the staff will raid your room and open it...even if you are a woman alone in the room. It was very awkward and embarrassing to be stormed in by a man you don't know.

  • Single

    It was one of the best hostels i ever visited

    Breakfsst and eating facilities/conditions were not perfect

  • Family with children

    Close to city centre, beaches and museums

    Not enough shower facilities to cope with busy times.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    The YHA Wellington comes across as a really well run operation, we've stayed here twice and the place is really clean, the facilities are excellent and the staff are friendly but also really professional - they seem to take their jobs seriously but have fun at the same time. It's a massive place but it still feel's like it has a bit of personality.

    Nothing to speak of.

    The location was pretty good, right in the town center and you can reach everything pretty good on foot. Laundry facilites have a tv and free wifi access for YHA-members. If you're not a member, it costs 5 Dollars per day.

    Staff at the reception was pretty annoyed, not very friendly and helpful. They just did what they had to. We had a double room with shared facilites and our window was facing the backyard. It was pretty noisy, many people chatting along the windows, yelling at eachother. We even had to hear how some people threw up in the middle of the night...right out of the window on the glass-roof of the café below....yam!

    The staff were fantastic and my double room was clean & spacious (for a backpackers), the bathrooms were clean with plenty of toilets & showers & even a hair dryer!

    It was a bit stuffy in the room but it is the middle of summer

    Free unlimited wifi. Clean bathrooms. Nice and helpful people at the welcoming desk. Great location.

    View on other rooms. Parking facilities not available around: got a parking ticket.
