Nothing, window glass not sealed. Kitchen not very good specially when kids are around. You can not cook properly because of poor appliances. Self-contained room not in good standard. Drawers, cupboards, I think everything in the room needs to be replaced. Sorry for making this comment but the lodge needs to be at par with the other lodges that with visited. Sad to say your lodge is not recommendable.
Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Excellent location, felt comfortable getting around the city after only a day. Self-contained kitchen was completely adequate, could cook most dinners on the little portable stove top and had most cooking utensils. The 5 person apartment was a great size for eating and socialising, didn't feel cramped at all.
The heaters kept the room very warm but could not be turned off - we got very dehydrated overnight. Bunk beds weren't too comfortable. Sink got blocked on the first night, dirty dishwater took all night to drain.
The location was very centrick - 5-10 minutes to the seafront, papa museum and all places of interest. The room was basic but ok if you dont have a lot of money but dont want to stay in the dorm with other people this is the right option for you.
I would prefer to have the wifi in the room. I had to go down to the lobby and common area to have connection. But I cant complaint as it was on the website.
It was a very convenient location.
Noisy and in need of some renovating in the bathrooms.
The location was handy to town but so is all the budget accommodation in Wellington.
Two of the three showers didn't work on the floor I stayed on and were in an unclean and dated state. Definitely not worth the money, stay at another budget accommodation if you can.
Leaving out the front door
We did not like that it was a dirty hostel horrible bathrooms and lack of lighting n the bathroom
Central to what I required during my stay in Wellington
No wash basin in room or facilities to make tea or coffee
Staff was friendly,good location
Bathrooms and toliets was not clean,no toiletbrushes,me and my husband when both to toilets that was dirty and their was hair in the showers.We will definetly pay more and look for something better. Definetly not for us.
It was very central to town. Found the place clean and staff welcoming and helpful.
My husband found the room next door kept him awake. Could do with upgrading the place has huge potential but is in dire need of just painting, especially in the showers on second floor. No shelves to put things on. Bedroom a bit tight on space but comfortable bed.
The price for the room exceeded its price for an overnight stay, compared to other hotels they offer an overnight room staynight with a bathroom (no sharing) for less than $140 and have better quality rooms. The bathrooms were not of great quality they were dirty and unsanitary E.G. toilets had stains on them. Room wasn't that great either, but everything else was fine.
The hotel was adequate for the time spent there overnight. I liked the sparkling cutlery in the drawer. It was great to pull the drawer open and see the brand spankin new cutlery. I would've expected to see this solid silverware in a real posh hotel. The linen was nice and fresh and the double bed was comfortable in the apartment that sleeps 5 with 2 sets of bunks . The staff on the front desk was very helpful and obliging...you need to
The lift was rather scarry. It clunked when it came to a stop. The stairwell smelled of cigarette smoke. There was no tea towel and the frying pans looked abit sad.
The only thing I liked about Lodge in the City was the great location. I had shouted my two daughters the trip to wellington to see the wearable arts show. We had no transport while in the city so the lodge was handy to shopping and the show. .
The room was very basic. Not well laid out ie TV set and sterio on a unit where there was no plug within 3 metres!!! It is in desparate need of renovation. The bed was comfy enough and clean. But out of the 4 double electric plugs in the room, 3 of them were not working. The hallways were over poweringly smelly with what I suspected was a automatic airfreshener. There were no smoking signs everywhere stating the whole building was smokefree but there was definate smells of smoking in our corridor.
The staff were fantastic, really helpful and did everything they could do help make our stay as good as possible. The bunks were nice and solid and didn't wobble!!! (as in some hostels!). Nice easy walk to Cuba St and central town shops and close to a bus stop.
The bathrooms were dirty and I've never stayed in a hostel before where the bathroom facilities were communal which was a bit disconcerting, When you're wandering around in your PJs, it's nice to have a little girl/boy privacy! Especially because the toilets are already not particularly private with large gaps under and over the doors and dividers. The worst thing was that when we arrived at about 5.30 there was alot of toilet paper all over the toilet floor (level 2) and the bathroom's didn't feel that clean and when I went back at 11pm before going to bed there was still the same toilet paper all over the floor so the bathroom obviously hadn't been cleaned or checked in that time which was a bit horrible. It was also very very noisy in the room we had - we were by the doors and with a window onto the road so it was a pretty interrupted sleep what with lifts, doors banging and ambulances roaring past. I'm not sure I would come again for that reason and because the bathrooms were so unclean and mixed. Although there were female only toilets on the next floor it would be nice not to have to wander down the stairs with your toothbrush. Also no separate lockers for personal storage which I think is important although the staff were very helpful about looking after our stuff while we were in town. Guess you get what you pay for.
No towels were included which I didn't know and usually coffee or some sort of breakfast is included in backpacker accommodation. Which wasn't in this case. The lift wouldn't come to the second flour when called.
The location was quite good and the TV was ok in the room. The heating system was quite good.
Not enough parking spaces, very noisy as it is close to the main street. We didn't feel comfortable to have family holiday at this place.
