Welcome to our hostel

Our group accommodation in Wellington is in a great location, perfect for groups to get around and explore. It is slap bang in the middle of all the action and within walking distance of many of the major sights and attractions.

Wellington is a compact and diverse city which has more than 50 galleries and museums. Groups staying at our hostel should not miss the monumental Te Papa – New Zealand's National Museum, which is just a five minute walk away from the front door.

Join the tours of the locations where Lord of the Rings was filmed either to the studio or to one of the many locations in and around Wellington. And check out the harbour where there is a dazzling array of waterfront cafes, bars and shops.

With a dedicated travel and excursion desk at the hostel, the staff are able to organise activities for groups – and might be able to negotiate a discount for you too.

Groups wanting to discover the local wildlife should make a point of visiting Zealandia: The Karori Sanctuary Experience where some of New Zealand’s rarest wildlife can be seen.

And of course those looking for a personal challenge can scale the heights of Mount Victoria for magnificent views over the city.

A relaxing and memorable day out for groups is a ride in the bright red cable car to the Botanic Gardens. Alternatively why not join in one of the free activities which are regularly organised by the hostel such as walking tours of the city or the famous quiz night?

So if your group is looking for accommodation which is award-winning and centrally located in Wellington, then our hostel could be the one for you. Make an enquiry now.
