    Good value and pleasant pub with good food. Big kitchen if you needed it. We had an en-suite room which was perfect for one night

    It’s backpacker accommodation so expect some noise.

    The room was just what we needed, clean bathroom, hot shower and very comfortable bed.

    Nothing to complain about at all.

    Excellent location for Bluebridge Ferry terminal, railway station, parliament buildings, wharf side, Wellington Museum and easy walk to Te Papa and Cuba area. Our room was very small - but had everything we needed and was good value for money. There is a comfortable communal lounge and eating area. Our towels were changed daily. Heating was on so nice and warm.

    Nothing. It was very inexpensive.
