This is a solid choice if you're after the convenience of a downtown stay without the price tag. For the price, the facilities are remarkably good, with lovely bathrooms, and dated, but beautiful decor.

A cheap, safe, no-frills hostel, Downtown Backpackers is right in the middle of town and perfect for someone passing through the capital city on a budget.

There aren't many Backpacker in the world, let alone the world, that can lay claim to being fit for the Queen. Downtown Backpackers can do just that, sort of. In 1953 the Queen and her entourage stayed here when it was known as the Historic Hotel Waterloo. The beautiful decor remains the same and this is one of Wellington's best located backpackers right opposite the ferry and train stations.
