Good communal areas and clean bathrooms. The bedrooms are clean and comfortable, with good beds - although there are no plugs by the upper bunks, and no lights by the beds, and you have to put your key card in for the electricity to work which can be impractical. The hostel offers free breakfast - they provide a pancake mix...

The rooms had bathrooms in them, but there were also bathrooms in the hallways. Good kitchen and actually really good free dinners and breakfasts (although the pancake batter can be unusually sweet). The bar next door does make some noise so bring earphones if needed. Staff is helpful and friendly.

Maybe my expectations were too high, because I had recently stayed at the excellent YHA down the road; when they were booked, I tried Nomads on their recommendation. I wish they hadn't. Even though I paid for 3 nights, I left after one. They charge you for every little thing they can - $13 for a towel, $12 for wifi...

We stayed for three days and we had a great time at Nomads Hostel in a very clean, nice, quiet and big room and a big bathroom. The staff is pretty nice, the free pancakes in the morning and the free meals at night are great. You can just relax and enjoy nice quiet evenings or go out, because you're...

I usually try to avoid these bigger hostels but there are limited options in Wellington. The curtain in the room (4 bed dorm) didn't cover the window, beds are creaky and doors close really noisily. I don't like their no refund policy, it's a Travellers hostel. Traveller's plans change. If cancellation is done with some notice refund should be due....

The location of the hostel was great. Easy walking distance to the museum and the water. Also, close to an airport bus stop. The room we had for four people was very small and very hot. With the window open, we heard a lot of noise from the street below, especially since it was the weekend. We couldn't get the...

The location was super conventioneer, right next to Cuba St, so easy access to food and nightlife, and the room itself was decent and clean. My only issue was concerning paying for wifi, but honestly, Wellington has free wifi throughout the CBD, so it's just an incentive to not stay in the room all day

Clean place, stay in a four beds room. The only down side is that the internet is not included as most of the backpackers place. Pretty cool that the pancakes are free in the morning. Didn't try the dinner.

The staff at the hostel were friendly and informative and the free meal provided by the bar next door was good however as my room was just above the bar it was noisy when I was trying to sleep. The sink was also clogged before I arrived in the room. Location was good, very close to supermarket and museum.

Backpackers are not just for young wanderers, they are a great cost saving option for families too. I had a room with my 2 kids right in the heart of the city for 3 nights for a price of 1 night in a motel. We had our own bathroom. We had access to free breakfasts, light dinner and hot drinks....
