Absolutely awesome atmosphere in a great spot, with the enjoyment and security of a comfortable home that is so important for so many travelers, especially those arriving exhausted and broken after stupid, long, cheap flights.

I had a wonderful stay at House of Tawatawa. It is a fantastic guy and the social house he created is something I will always remember ! I stayed three days and it was quite hard to leave...we had fun playing cards, he took me to visit the surroundings (red rocks, beach...), gave me advices for my trip, cook a nice diner...it couldn’t have been more perfect! Others people are also very friendly and I really felt home the all time. Thank you so much for the great experience, come for a visit in France !!!!!

I had a great time staying at the House of Tawatawa. I've experienced him as a funny, honest and overall great host. The view over Wellington from his place alone is breathtaking and there were always people around, which made it easy to make new connections. It's certainly not your typical couchsurfing experience but if you want to meet new people and have a great time I can highly recommend to drop him a request!

Me and my boyfriend stayed at House of Tawatawa for a week when we just moved to Wellington. It’s a cool place with a lot of fun people, it’s always busy and people to hang out with. I would recommend staying there, it’s a lovely view and area, and a short walk to the bus that takes you right to cbd. Conrad and all the people staying there were super nice and it was just very chill.
Thanks House of Tawatawa, and I guess we’ll see you around! Feel free to come by Aro Valley :)

There are so many things I could write about House of Tawatawa and it own little "society"...
as I arrived Conrad welcomed me in front of gis house playing the guitar... immadiately we went on making music...
it is an amazing big house where no less then 22 people are living together..
and it works... that s amazing! few rules... do the dishes... don t make noise outside at night and don t complain about others seem to be enough to keep a long term togetherness going on...
even though I applied for 2 nights, Conrad allowed me to stay to more nights without any conditions...
Conrad has a deep social intelligence , and understands to still be available for you if you need it...he is a sensitive person and a good musician.
Even if you get the impression first it s all about drinking and party.... it s not... there are much deeper things going on in this community!!
you will meet people sll over the world living there... many started as couchsurfers first!
Thanks bro!!

We lived in that house for more than 6 months. If you are looking for a quite place to stay then you should probably go somewhere else. If you want to meet new friends, fantastic people from all around the world, have a fun, drink and play games every night, well, come here. Crazy house and people - Christmas in July and New Years Eve in August, Nerf and water balloon wars, no pants Wednesday or just sit and chill on a beach - would stay again and again. Please, keep the place clean, wash and dry your dishes, recycle and bring some toilet paper. Not suitable for rascists, xenophobes and homophobes.

Me & my friend Fabian stayed one night at the House of Tawatawa. It is a very chaotic fun-house with various people from different backgrounds. We immediately were welcomed with a bottle of beer and went out the first day to celebrate the birthday of someone we never met before - it was insanely funny and totally worth it. It seemed similar to a hostel, but actually more like a home for short period. The people living there are all very welcoming and friendly, everybody has an interesting story to tell and anything but boring.
We really enjoyed our stay in front of their house (we stayed in the van because we were too drunk to make it in the bunk beds when we came home :D). Thanks for hosting us - you are always welcome on the other side of the world in Germany & Austria to stay with us and get fucked up ;)

at the House of Tawatawa is a power team. They each bring something different to the table keep the place running. They also all have different interests and hobbies so you can get into a lot of unique things and conversations. Of course there are some common grounds like rugby, brews, music and nocturnal hangout sessions.
As long as you actually read the profile and are fun or easy going this house is awesome to be in. There are a lot of other awesome people in the house as well. Some regulars and lots of passer throughers to keep things interesting and to bounce ideas off of for travel.
I wasn’t sure what I was getting into when I arrived but I got a warm welcome and felt comfortable immediately (as far as I can remember ). New Zealand is great within itself but the locals, aka the Kiwis, to me, put it on another level for travel and these guys do not disappoint.
Can’t thank you all enough for everything!
Cheers!

It was wonderful staying at the House of Tawatawa! I didn't hang out with Adam or Sean, but I had a great time playing cards with Conrad and many of the other surfers / folks living there and I even learned a new variation of Euchre! This is a great place for solo travelers. You can meet some friends along the way, share some stories, make some food in the kitchen/common area they have, and just feel really comfortable and at home. I did. Thanks Conrad and co!

This place is the best to meet a ton of chill people. It is also just a quick bus ride from the center, with suuuuper comfy beds and a smart ass dog :)

Conrad, Shaun, and Adam... 1,000 characters is not enough. I just can't believe I was lucky enough to stumble into these beautiful people the moment I touched down in Wellington. If you are: spontaneous, clean, random, into drinking and partying late practically every night, stargazing, pushing the limits of personal space and boundaries, witnessing and participating in sinful acts (oh come on people I mean tarot reading), meeting randos on a regular basis, and being social at odd hours of the day, you have found the perfect host. If you are at all shy, awkward, afraid of French people, or not into sharing you better turn right around and don't look back. To describe each of the guys individually, you have Conrad, affectionate and giggly, Adam, who sucks at nerf gun battles but owns at practically everything else, and Shaun, who is a perfect little snowflake. Plus you have the other 12 people living in the house, each with their own unique set of characteristics. It all just works.

I was supposed at the House of Tawatawa and its horde of 10+ adoptees for three days. It's a good week later and, what do you know, I'm still here - it is that kind of place. Should you get a chance to stay at the House of Tawatawa, consider yourself lucky, you'll love it. You'll meet a bunch of great people from all over the world (and the cutest pup!) who will make your stay in Wellington so much more enjoyable.

The boys were excellent host, who was willing to help us despite arriving late in the evening (12:30am). It's a perfect halfway house set-up for people arriving into Wellington - the guys will let you crash on a sofa or a floor or even a bed if they have one going. We only met Shaun briefly as we left, but in our two nights there Conrad and Adam were both friendly, helpful and welcoming. Would recommend, and will probably be returning for a few beers once we've found our feet in the city.

The House of Tawatawa family are very friendly and epic! They are easy going and fun to hang out with. Basically you will feel comfortable to be around them eventhough seeing them for the first time. Conrad is very accommodating as my plan changed last min, but he was able to host me for two nights instead of one. I learn a new game from them and it was fun!! Hehehehe... At last, i think they have a good vibes and will choose to hang out with them again! Cheers!!

We enjoyed staying at the House of Tawatawa! They were very kind to send us an email with a lot of information about his house and things to do in the city, and the travellers he hosts are lucky to share a nice private space. The house is in a good location for getting around by bus, and there are nice views. Thanks so much guys, we really appreciated the stay!

These guys are just like my friends back home so I felt at home right away. Nothing on their profile is a lie. They drink lots of beer and stay out till late. Also everyone helps to keep the house clean. I loved staying there and will definitely go back if I get the change.

The boys were a great host, very social and easy going, generous and very caring. I also met Adam and had some good late night conversations with him. If google maps tells you to take the N1 bus and walk through the "golf course", don't do it.

I've stayed just three nights at the House of Tawatawa and I was really sad the day I had to leave... after traveling for four months, it was the first time that I really felt at home. Conrad, Shaun an Adam are some really cool, lovely and funny guys!
I hope to meet you again :)

Staying with Conrad, Shaun and Adam is what Couchsurfing is all about. These three cool guys open their home to share real experiences with people from all around the world. I stayed with them a few nights and enjoyed every second of my stay. I met some amazing people and shared some great beers with them too:) I really wish everyone using this website was as cool as these guys here, I am excited to meet you all again, until then!

House of Tawatawa sure was a space host (the best host in the universe)! I had an amazing time staying with him, his roommates and the other couchsurfers, even though it was only for two nights and it was raining. I was lucky enough to get some guitar lessons, and I must say Conrad is an amazing teacher as well! Furthermore they're sweet, caring, funny, and just awesome people! I'm definitely coming back :)

Our first couchsurfing experience and it was amazing. It was always funny with all the other couchsurfers and Conrad and his flatmates were so nice. We also experienced some impressive sounds of them thanks for having us hopefully we'll see eachother again.

The house is full of energy and the boys are a great host who's likely to give you a tour through the track, if you're lucky you'll ever see a couple of shooting stars there at night. Did I mention the walking tracks? Couple of them just right next to the house.
Other than that you'll find yourself constantly amazed and confused with so many nice travellers passing by.

Having such a blast I'm staying one more night! I loved the house full of people from all over the world. Listening to everyone around me was incredible. Had such a fun time exploring the flying fox and staying up way past my bedtime talking with congrad and Suzy, playing dice with Adam. Such beautiful people, I hope to always keep up with their lives.
