3/5 Okay

Travelled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
Very comfortable bed, lovely staff. There was several things outside the building that banged in the wind all night. Very noisey and relentless in the intense wind of Wellington. Also there is a QR code in the room to order food from the pub downstairs but in the folder it clearly states no room service so didn’t trust it to order

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This is a budget hotel, with mostly dormitories. However, I stayed in a private room with an ensuite. Everything expected was provided. I would recommend this type of room for travellers on a budget who would prefer a private room and private bathroom rather than shared facilities, as it was clean and adequately comfortable for the price. Very handy location. Close to transport, restaurants, shopping, and Te Papa Museum.
