I loved the location of the back packers. Unfortunately being Wellington parking is always an issue. Loved the fact that this facility offers a free meal every night (even though I didn’t participate). Love that there is a student bar attached to the facility ( unfortunately it had a private e function on this time). Negatives I experienced was no remote or way to turn on the tv in our room. Only provided with two towels and no floor towel. The shower drain was blocked and I had to remove the drain grill to insure I didn’t flood the bathroom.
