Base Wellington Backpackers Hostel
3 out of 5

My booking was okay and I am writing about the booking of my friend. My friend was told to pay $78 for the booking since the receptionist, she said "Our hotel have never offered this rate before". Actually, we did book on the $AU50 promotion on the other days ago. For this reason, I have to call Ratestogo call centre to sort this out twice!!!. First, my friend call me to check about the booking and I talked with the receptionist and she told that he need to pay $78 more to stay for 3 nights. Then I told her I will call to Ratestogo. After talked with Ratestogo, the call centre already called the hostel to confirm the booking and she said everything is okay now. So, I called my friend again and talked to receptionist. She told that Ratestogo just called her and still need to pay $78 more. Then, I asked why? She still said "I never told the booking is not confirmed, it is confirmed but you need to pay $78 more". Okays, I hanged up and made the call to Ratestogo again. Second, I talked with Ratestogo call centre and I told her everything then she asked me to wait because she's going to make the another call to the hostel. After a while, I was told that every is okay now and she apologized for the inconvenience caused. Finally, my friend can checked in to the hostel without to pay $78 more. But I still got no apologize about it. I am really thanks Ratestogo Call Centre to sort this problem out.

Ideal for young travellers who wish to party all night very noisy . But ideal location to pickup your mobile home from. Within walking distance to everything in Wellington.

We needed a place that would take two children and two adults in a room at reasonable rates. We found Base Wellington Backpackers and judging by the number of children there others have found it also provides a necessary service. We will go back again.

Maybe need more staff on at busy times as we had to wait a rather long time for general enquires at reception when big groups where checking in. Would also be better if there was a coin operated machine for internet tickets rather than waiting to get a ticket from reception when it is busy. Should not have a key deposit system for twin/ double rooms as is very inconvenient when checking in. Lockers are a very good idea for storing bags if room is not ready. Overall very good, lots of great facilities and very handy for Wellington shops and points of interest and especially having airport bus stop just round the corner! Would recommend and stay again! :)
