Last Minute YHA Bed Saves My Night
My private accommodation arrangements changed at the last minute so I booked a bed at the YHA on arrival at Wellington Airport. Very easy to get to with a backpack on the Airport Flyer bus from the stop at the beginning of Courtney Pl. Price was just right and check-in was straightforward. I chose a bed in a female dorm. Maybe youthful room mates felt uncomfortable at my older presence - I have enjoyed a mixed dorm experience overseas better. Power point for charging my phone was almost inaccessible without intruding on bed space below. Hot showers and clean bathrooms. Good kitchen facilities and public spaces and practical encouragement of environmental sustainability eg shopping bags provided. New World supermarket very handy across the road. Overall a good experience considering I booked late.

Hotel YHA
Shared bathroom for private rooms on 4th floor need a thorough clean especially the seat attached to shower wall. This seat requires regular thorough scrub with a cleaning solution & scrubbing brush. Flippin filthy.

Good value budget-type accommodation
The YHA accommodation was perfectly adequate for my requirements. I stayed in a double room, shared bathroom on the 5th floor. It was close to the bathroom and the lift. It was a little bit noisy but that is expected in that area of town. Plus it was a busy weekend for Wellington ( Eminem concert!). Very conveniently located to CBD plus the waterfront and with a great supermarket across the road.

Very hot in the bunk room. Appreciated the fan but had to test it on the end of the bed to reach the power point Plus u need to get the door cards that can’t be screwed up by putting it in with a cell phone!

Good value
Noisy when people sit on the bean bags in hall way chatting, noise travels. Heavy fire doors make a resounding thud as they close on other rooms in the same corridor. Good value for money though, and very clean and tidy, would stay again, good WiFi.

Perfect. For a short stay !!
We went up to see WOW and this place suited us perfectly. Good location and quite adequate for what we needed.
