The location was fabulous. The price was affordable. The staff was friendly.
The noise from outside was very loud until the early hours of the next morning. We also had a light blanket on the bed which didn't keep us warm when we initially climbed in the bed. Throughout the night the room warmed up. The room was bright at night from outside lighting because the curtain didn't cover the sides of the window well.
Staff was very friendly and helpful when I arrived; awesome location with less than 5 min walk to Cuba Street; the shower in my private bathroom had nice, hot water and good water pressure; bed was a bit squeaky but still quite comfortable in my opinion
Facilities a little run down and WiFi only available in the lounge on the first floor They didn’t offer any free meals (free bfast + free dinner) while I was there because of the pandemic, but I still paid the same price for my stay
・Free Pancake in the morning ・Good Wifi Condition in lobby ・Pleasant Staff ・Good Location
Situated rather central in downtown Wellington, it's a brisk walk in any direction to various things. Lower Cuba Street and Courtenay Place are a few minutes away, as is the harbour waterfront, and a little further, the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa. At the hostel, some free amenities can help on a tighter budget, and is an interesting way to meet fellow travellers. Each evening a complimentary dinner is available in the adjacent Blend bar, with $5 house drinks (if you feel like one). At reception, free instant coffee, tea bags, sugar, and milk, are a nice touch – just add your own cup and hot water! The free pancake breakfast offered is a 'cook-it-yourself' (CIY?) deal though. In the shared hostel room the dual pillows per bed were great, the mattress was medium-firm too (although the bunk frame did squeak)!
Free Wi-Fi option is rather weak and slow, only suitable for e-mails, using on your phone, or if you have the patience. Don't expect to watch YouTube or stream video with it. On two consecutive nights the free dinner meat option included beef mince mixed with vegetables, supposedly as a spaghetti bolognese or as a 'pie' (which I say loosely, as was crusts of pie pastry and mince). Base of the bathroom door directly opposite our room has swollen (looks like medium-density fibreboard).
The staff were amazingly helpful and the free dinner is huge. Location is superb.
It was quite unclean, but I suppose that is messy travelers. It's peak season.
With a stay at Nomads Capital Backpackers Wellington, you'll be centrally located in Wellington, steps from Wellington Central Business District and 5 minutes by foot from Te Papa (Museum of New Zealand). Featured amenities include complimentary newspapers in the lobby, a 24-hour front desk, and luggage storage.
