Hotel Waterloo & Backpackers Reviews


If you want to make the most of your stay in Wellington then make sure you choose Downtown Backpackers as your first choice for accommodation.

Situated directly opposite the railway station Downtown Backpackers is ideally located, being the closest hostel to trains, buses and the interisland ferry, and is only a few minutes walk to parliament, the new stadium, the city area and Te Papa, Wellingtons fabulous Museum of New Zealand.

Downtown Backpackers is located in Wellingtons historic Art Deco Waterloo Hotel, a former high class hotel which was chosen for the Queens 1953 Coronation Tour. This hotel was one of the top hotels in the Southern Hemisphere in its day. It is a classic example of the podium design of Art Deco architecture and is listed as historically significant by both the Historic Places Trust and the Wellington City Council.

Facilities include ensuite bathrooms, Sky TV, hair salon, travel centre, your choice of a self catering kitchen or our own in house café, fast internet access with six ADSL machines, and a really excellent bar with a games room with pool tables and the latest video games.

We want Wellington to be a highlight of your NZ experience and we have lots of information to help you to plan your stay. Finalist in the NZ Tourism Awards, 1999, 2000 and 2001
