8 Halswell Street Thorndon, Wellington
The Dwellington is relatively new and claims to be the most luxurious hostel you will ever stay in. Their claims are true, as they not only have a long list of amenities, but also lots of style and posh to go with it.

First of all, the communal kitchen is better than the one you have at home (even if you live well). Rooms are nicely appointed, clean, modern, and comfortable. They have dorms and private rooms of varying sizes available at a range of prices, meeting everyone's needs. Guests can eat their free breakfast at the fancy wooden table overlooking the tennis court. You can't say that about most hostels, can you? Their spacious common areas provide for ample opportunity to meet and mingle with other guests.

Reviewers give this hostel high marks for cleanliness and comfort.
