Wellington YHA
Wellington YHA is always a great place to stay. Pleasant, helpful staff; clean, tidy facilities; excellent location. Best of all for me, it is very wheelchair accessible and an easy place to stay at on my own.

Poor1.0 / 5
Very disappointed customer, 0% Customer Service
Overall: - extremely disappointed with the absolute lack of customer service, - the facilities are of very good quality. The YHA Wellington facilities are still of the highest quality: large clean comfortable rooms, well equipped kitchen, etc. I can not point out a single positive thing about the staff whom I encountered: they were rude, did not bother to be helpful, lazy, unhelpful, did the minimal with respect to providing any information when I requested (recommendations for places to eat, sights, etc), I booked and paid for the airport shuttle when I was departing and the driver tried to charge me twice for the journey (despite I already having a receipt for my payment). Upon checking out, I asked if I could stay in the premises until the shuttle bus arrived (as the desk was staffed until 22.30). I was assured that I could, but was then escorted outside the door later that evening by the evening staff and i had to sit for 2 hours with my bags on the side of the street waiting for the bus. They also charge for luggage storage ( at an hourly rate for lockers) and do not inform you that they have a luggage storage room on the 2nd floor which is empty as people are not aware of it. (I accidentally found out from a helpful roommate, as it's existence was denied by the staff when i initially enquired). There was a free breakfast provided during my previous stay. It is no longer offered.
