The Dwellington

Home-style private and shared accommodation in the heart of Wellington. Our goal is to create a place of comfort and style, in a relaxed atmosphere, providing the weary traveler with some long missed home comforts at extremely affordable rates.


Per night
$32.00 - $270.00


The Dwellington perfectly blends the homely, the cozy and the stylish within a backpackers property. Established in 2013, The Dwellington's aim is to improve the standard of BACKPACKER hostels in Wellington, the Capital city.

Over half of the Dwellington is dedicated to common areas, including the socially-designed kitchen and dining areas, awesome barbecue deck, tennis and squash courts, two living rooms, television with Netflix, and a state of the art cinema room. We offer our guests free unlimited WiFi and a free breakfast everyday during their stay.

Designed to be a sanctuary in the middle of the city, The Dwellington knows that a little comfort goes a long way.
