There are good hostels and bad hostels, this one is bad. I've been in my fair share of hostels all over the world and have my own standards. New Zealand is a beautiful Country (my fav after Canada) and they have some really great and unique hostels. This was not one of them. Base hostels as a group are also usualy very nice and clean. Again this was not one of them. Base Wellington was really un-cared for. The rooms were dirty. The sheets were fresh, but the beds were not, the floors wern't vaccumed, there was dirtyness everywhere! The kitchen was also a mess. I know this is generally the fault of other trvelers, but it's also the staffs responsibility to clean it if the guests don't. The kitchen is also really small and was difficult to use.
Location wise this hostel gets points. It was close to everything including the grocery store. The pub below was also really great. Extra points there, I had fun.
But if you're going to stay overnight in Wellington, find another hostel.
