Old and rundown
The staff here didn't seem to care and took a while to check us in. They do not hold bags at reception, even for an hour so lockers have to be paid for. The was an elevator, which was necessary for the number of floors. The room was old but since we were in a twin, we were sharing a bathroom with just one other room. There is a cafe next to the kitchen that does breakfast. This hostel is not very close to the city centre at all.

  This old hotel is showing its age, but it was clean and well-maintained. The bar was loads of fun. Room are small and drafty (due to the hotel development trends of when it was built), but they were comfortable, clean, and hot water was readily available. On the downside, the kitchen food was not good.

  Do not ever stay here. It is filthy and creepy. And it smells.

  AH!!! I shudder to think of this place! I booked two beds in a dorm because of its location near the train station and when I arrived I had to wait for ONE WHOLE HOUR to get checked in. The reason why I had to wait: there were about eight people filing complaints with the hostel. Some of them had dirty rooms, and others were being moved out of their rooms every day against their will! One couple was woken up at night by a staff member who "just remembered" that they had promised the room to someone else! By the time I finally got someone to deal with me, I had a creepy feeling about the place. Staff were sparse and overwhelmed and I had just the worst vibe. Then they said we never made a reservation (I had to go to an Internet cafe and print out the confirmation e-mail to prove it to them) and then they said that people in my beds hadn't checked out yet! It was 2 p.m. and the checkout is at 10 a.m.!!! Well that did it. I didn't stay there (even though they were reluctant to refund me the money!!!). Wellington is in short supply of good hostels, but you can't do much worse than this place. Too bad I can't give it a zero star.

  This place had a nice art deco style. The dorms were overcrowded hellholes. The double rooms were okay, if old and shabby. The bar is good — especially with free pool! The location is not so good. It takes about 20 minutes to get into the city center and there is very little nearby except the station and ferry terminals.

  Loved it!! The atmosphere, the bar, the living area, and the kitchen were all good. The room was a little old, but it was okay.
