Location is near great bars, the museum, grocery store, and even a great tattoo parlor right next door (which my friend and I ended up using hah (: ) The only bad part of my stay is that we ended up needing two nights instead of the originally booked one since the ferry had been cancelled, and instead of adding on to our booking we had to check out and move all our luggage into the lobby area to only check right back in later in the day and be put in the same room. The room hadn't even been cleaned, which it hadn't needed to be if we could've just stayed put the whole time. I do believe it is because the worker that morning was new; the lady the night before had been very understanding and told us we wouldn't have to move our stuff. The kitchen was very spacious, there was a nice tv and couch lounge area, and the rooms were spacious as well for being 6 shares (I was lucky and only with 3 others!) Overall I had a great two nights there!

Missed the fine print so did not realise no towels supplied. Very clean. Friendly staff. Close to CBD, restaurants, cafe's, Te Papa, water front and other attractions. Buses to all over just round the corner.

Stayed here for one night only in a six bedroom dorm, which was a tight squeeze. There was only one plug between the whole room which is v annoying! Music very loud from outside all night long and window's were not very soundproof, but suppose can be expected in a city centre.

The nearest bathrooms were quite a way away from our room, but were a good standard.

Bar downstairs was excellent and good value!

In a central location which makes getting around Wellington easy. Short drive away from the Ferry to the South Island.

The reason why I am giving this an average rating is the room I was in. It was on the 4th or 5th floor and was opposite the ladies bathroom.

It was a 6 bed dorm but should have only been a 4 bed dorm as there was no room whatsoever to have a small bit of personal space and bags where left in the only space available. There were drawers underneath the beds but they only had the capacity for small bags.

In the summer I can imagined it would be even worse with the heat etc. If you get one of these rooms ask to be moved. If they took two of the beds out it would be fine.

Location is good for all the bar and clubs which are just around the corner. Kitchen is adequate and there is free wifi by reception between set hours. Like all Base hostels though you can buy unlimited wifi for a price.
