I spent a little over two months living at the St. George. The price was UNBEATABLE with such an awesome location. Did I mention I stayed in the same room as the Beatles? Too cool! A short walk to Courtney Place and even shorter one to Cuba Street. The place always had friendly familiar faces. Elevators are fast too. And best of all is the manager - Bruce: super friendly, always helpful. I would definitely recommend this place!
“Great place right in the heart of Wellington!”
I lived here while working in Wellington from Jan to May & loved every moment of it. Moved in with my friend and got inter connecting rooms with our own bathroom which was good.Was only meant to stay here for a few days while looking for an aprtment but loved it so much stayed an extra few months. Great place to meet new people, shared kitchen which is handy if your there for a few days and want to save money long term aslong as you get there at the right time you avoid the crowd, kitchen cleaned twice a day which is good. Couldn't say enough good things about the manager Bruce very helpfully even helped me fix a problem with my laptop amoungst and Yong on reception was great too, left my usb and she even posted to me great friendly staff , Miss ye all will defo call in the next time I'm in Wellington, thanks for a great stay ;-)
“Great place to meet other travellers”
I stayed here for a week with my sister while i was in wellington. was a great place to meet others. i found the building to be very warm and hardly needed the heaters provided in each room. we had a room with an ensuite, which also included a bath. the communal kitchen was clean and the lounge area was huge! great idea of having arcade games and vending machines in the common area too.
Perfect location on Willis St means you are right in the city centre...Had a great time living here Jan-March 2011, very reasonably priced accommodation with large bedrooms and fully equipped shared kitchen. Property manager is awesome, very friendly and all the staff there will help you out with any enquiries you have :)Made some great friends living there, I miss you St George!
“Lovely place to stay”
The rooms are spacious and clean. I was in a shared room, with two beds and a shared bathroom. The backpackers is for long term-ers so there are a lot of people working. The common room area is huge, with plenty of room to relax and play pool, or watch TV. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful.
“Ideal for students”
I'm an international from Vietnam and I stayed at Hotel St George for about 10 months. Excellent location (10 mins to Uni, supermarkets, Sunday markets, buses and trains etc.), friendly staff, and very safe. I'll return to St George after my summer vacation to continue my study :)!
