Don't expect anything, but it's OK
I just wanted a one night sleep stay-over, not a problem. Got myself my own room (bathroom is shared) and that worked out fine. Yes, it's not super clean and yes, there is youth walking around drunk - but once in my room it was OK.

Worst hostel in Wellington AVOID
Avoid this hostel. Really bad conditions, dirty. 1 st floor only 1 shower working for the whole floor. Bathroom disgusting. If you need go to the museum just 5 min walk.

bunks hurt to sleep on
We arrived and they couldn't find out booking. Showed the confirmation email and they asked me to pay for it showed I paid through Expedia. Asked for one key bond, I confirmed two keys needed for two rooms. He said one room was booked. Again referred booking confirmation. The bunks in the room were different for each room And the single bunks were extremely uncomfortable to the point we put the top matteress on the bottom bunk so we could sleep on two matteresses and we could still feel the bunk bars through the bed. Will not return.

Appalling
Arrived and told that we couldn't check in until 3pm as computers had crashed. Used downstairs toilet - no toilet roll. Beds incredibly uncomfortable - sprung mattress had springs digging in me and foam mattress left daughter with red marks from the bards. Toilets situated way down the corridor. lights missing bulbs, doors not locking well. Night-time noise was incredibly loud including a party downstairs. Will never go there again
