Score from 993 reviews Good
Staff friendliness was exceptional.
Parking was minimal to say the least and the fact they stuffed up the booking made it a stressful time.
Really well built, looked after, clean, comfortable hostel. As with any hostel with any hostel with long termers, a little bit cliquey. But still a friendly bunch.
The kitchen a bit small
the place is furnished with beautiful setting, everything is so nice there, make u like at home
the wifi coverage is not very wide... cant get the signal if far from the receptionist
Very nice facilities, a typical backpacker's atmosphere but with a nicer touch - all very clean and freshly renovated. Staff friendly and helpful.
Some rooms back onto the 'Party- area' outside, can get a bit loud if you want to sleep earlier.
-nice, comfy mattresses -punny name -kitchen has a convenient hot water tap -less than 2 min. walk from a New World supermarket -across the street from the U.S. embassy -lots of books available to read -outlet by each bed -key cards that can fit in your wallet rather than actual keys -nice toilets -tennis courts -large communal eating area in addition to the kitchen -study/lounge rooms
-a bit further from the city than another hostel I saw (Wellington Downtown Backpackers) -have to walk uphill, which was a bit tiring with my suitcase -have to ask for the free wifi or they will forget to offer it -drain in shower may have been slightly clogged (water would get all over the floor past the shower curtain) -atmosphere wasn't as friendly as some other hostels I stayed in (not the staff, but the other guests)
The owner was very helpful. We arrived early morning and he let us crash in the living room. And also arranged to have a room ready for us at the earliest possible. Thanks :)
The fit-out of this hostel was wonderful - with a super cool, cosy & boutique feel. It was clean, spacious and light, and clearly a lot of consideration had been given to the comfort and functionality of the shared spaces. I only stayed one night but I could imagine it would easily be your home-away-from-home if you stayed longer.
The wifi was pretty 'hit-and-miss', but did work better in some parts of the hostel.
I've stayed in a lot of backpackershostels but there wasnt one i couldnt manage to cook my diner (the kitchen is full of people ALL day), couldnt put anything in the fridge (all 4 were completely stuffed) so went for a dinner in the citycenter Also I could do my washing in those 2 days because the washingmachine is running all day and you dont have to try to have a sleep before 1AM because it is extremly noisy if your sleeping at the backyard-side
Staff were very friendly and polite. Value for money Free drop to the Interislander ferry terminal
Only one toliet and bathroom for the entire floor (1st floor)
Location: super easy to find, parkings are available all along the street. Staff: awesome and friendly people, very helpful whenever you need them Facilities: this place is full of chilling room with couches, outside table, garden with comfy pillows where you can rest. Kitchen is very well equipped and fridges are HUGE (something you don't see very often). Rooms: we had a double room, nice and big. Toilets / showers: clean and well maintained Looking forward to be back there next week!!! :)
Showers are fine!
Kitchen is a total mess!!
We liked the atmosphere right away. It's colorful, renovated and cosy. There's a large kitchen en common space to enjoy social life. Also the staff was very friendly and there was (or should be) free internet available.
The double room that we had was rather 'spartan'. It didn't have a heating nor had chairs or even a small table. This makes staying in the room not an option and you are forced into the communal areas. (Free) internet didn't work properly.
It was better than I expected
No Wifi available and one toilet blocked in the women's upstairs bathroom
Close to supermarket
Poor wifi signal
The hostel is completely renovated and it is really clean, the staff is really friendly. Short walk from the main attractions.
The wi-fi wasn't working really well, from our bedroom we could not connect easily.
breakfast included Clean room Friendly staff Accommodates late check in Quiet neighbourhood in the embassy district
Very spotty WiFi Very limited parking space available on site, but off site street parking was free overnight. Not walking distance to Cuba street
Nice place clean and comfortable very friendly helpful staff
Location , kitchen
Ok location and decor is nice
Hostel smelled badly of drains especially our room. Nothing done to fix this. 'Ultra fast wifi' doesn't work! Kitchen good but not big enough for the size of the hostel.
good location, nice staff, good room comfy bed
Nice house, bright rooms, new and clean kitchen
Wifi is super alow and has restricted number of connections, walk to city takes about 20-30 minutes
