Awesome place to stay

Having never stayed in a backpackers before I was pleasantly surprised at how clean and tidy everything was! I have stayed in hotels that weren't as good! The beds were clean and comfortable, the pancakes in the morning delicious and the free meal at the next door bar was tasty and filling. Staff were friendly and accommodating. The bar below was a bit noisy but having read reviews that this may be the case we took ear plugs and didn't hear a thing! A great experience and fantastic value for money! Would definitely recommend and stay again!! Thank you for a great stay!

Nomad Capital Backpackers Wellington

Was on third floor at back of building and room was very quiet. Backpackers very centrally located, close to waterfront, eating & entertainment places. Would definitely recommend. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

The best thing about this hotel

The best thing about this hotel is the location. The bar next door also does free dinner meals from 6-7pm every night which is good. Not too impressed with the "housekeeping" staff, who opened our door on more than one occasion on the same day BEFORE 10 AM. Initiallhy they asked if we wanted our rubbish cleared - there was no rubbish to clear as we had arrived very late the night before. Houskeeping kept entering our room asking additional questions like "are you sure you dont want your rubbish emptied?" or, "how about your bathroom?" or "how about your towels?". For the two mornings following they did not appear, by which time our rubbish was in need of emptying. The room itself is fine if you're planning to be out and about all day long. The price only reflects the fact that you're getting a small bathroom. We had a double bed and single bed in the room, at an awkward angle so the only space for the television was right next to the large bed (50cm away from your face)

I used this hotel because of close proximity to Te Papa Museum. I found personnel very helpful. Each day presented with a card for free dinner! I ordered a steak with extras which was not an unreasonable cost. It was excellent and cooked to perfection by a young chef. Plenty of places around if a full breakfast is required. So happy with my stay.

If you are wanting to party, this

If you are wanting to party, this is an ideal place. The bar has great deals on drinks & meals. If you are a family, or just wanting somewere to chill out & relax, this would not be the place for you. The music is extreamly loud & sleeping would be next to impossible. Overall I would rate this place about a 6/10.
