Stayed here a few weeks ago in a single room in the women only 'retreat' section. Room was clean, bathrooms (particularly the women's only one) not so much - mainly due to the wet room design. Appreciated the safety of key cards, but made visiting the bathroom in the middle of the night stressful for fear of forgetting to take...

Very nice hostel, with spacious kitchens, big lounge room and very friendly and helpful staff. Stayed here for a few months while working in Wellington. Hostel has a good mix between long-term and short-term people. Would definitely recommend anyone to stay here!

Lovley friendly staff, cleanish kitchens, bathrooms and rooms are nice enough. They have free Internet computers and also it is right in the centre! Pretty busy hostel but everything seemed to be clean!

Stayed at the hostel for a night after a gig in Wellington, totally acceptable hostel to stay at. Right in town so handy to everything central and only a 2km walk to westpac stadium. You do need to book a space at their car pack but they can give you validated parking close by if their own is full, I...

Perfectly functional hostel. We were able to park in the carpark next door for $20. It's a nice place but bed not very comfortable. Very friendly and helpful reception staff and great central location. Great if catching ferry next day, 10 min drive.

We stayed a night here before heading to Picton on the ferry. The room was clean even if slightly small. The guys at the reception were very friendly and they gave us clear directions to the free shuttle bus to the ferry. The toilet was neat and though we didn't use either of the kitchens we saw, they looked quite...

I enjoyed my 2 night stay here. The room was a good size and had nice big windows, it was clean. They have thought about things most hostels forget such as plenty of hooks for towels, plenty of power points and a mirror in the room. Lockers are provided, however don't forget your padlock. My negative remarks are the wifi....

It was my 2nd stay at Trek Global and this time I have to say that it was really great. My room was located in the retreat area and there was also a nice little terrace. I really enjoyed the fact that it was quiet and that not noisy at all. The staff was also really helpful and nice.

Booked for one night and immediately knew I wanted to stay somewhere else. The front desk staff are friendly enough but don't make any other effort than just to check you in and take your money. The kitchen was dirty and incredibly poorly stocked, but the kitchenettes on each other floor were much better. The mattresses remind me of thin...
