Stay at Base Wellington07:34 AM on Fri 14 Mar 2014


Base Backpackers in Wellington is centrally located in the heart of the city: just a short walk from Cuba St, New World, the Harbour & the I-Site. 
The staff at Wellington were really friendly and a good mix of locals and travellers who have come to call this vibrant city home. The staff at the Travel Desk gave me loads of travel tips as well as a list of free activities, maps and information about local festivals going on (we went to the free open air cinema and the Friday markets). 
Basement Bar downstairs had cheap drink specials on every night of the week as well as a Pizza & Pint Deal. The bar really started to kick off at about 10:00PM – and with Kiwi Experience arriving into the hostel basically every night of the week, it was usually busy every night of the week. 
Reception is open 24 hours. The hostel has 7 levels, with an entire floor dedicated to the Kitchen, Lounge Room, Laundry & an outdoor decking area. Breakfast is served daily for $7: Bread, Cereal, Yoghurt, Fruit, Juice, Tea & Coffee – and Marmite (much to my delight)! 
There are dorm rooms, female sanctuary dorms & private rooms available. 
Travelling with a campervan? Base Backpackers is one of the cheapest and most central locations to park up your Campervan overnight. It will cost you just $15 and you have access to the hostel’s toilet & shower facilities, lounge area, common area & kitchen.
Overall I had a great stay at Base Wellington and have fallen in love with this city! There is so much to do and it is so much more than an overnight stop!
