A little out of the way, up the hill from the "main" areas but walking distance, nice, quiet location. Most of the occupants are on their WHVs which meant messy dorms (typical hostel stuff) and alarms going off early the mornings. Generally a younger crowd, which is great cause everyone is friendly and warm though obviously, it isn't very quiet... More

Thank you Myra A, for reviewing Bungi Backpackers. We are all pleased that you enjoyed your time in Queenstown and your stay here at Bungi. We find that our location is good for most people as it is a quieter area, as you say away from the main centre of town, but close enough to walk to. We do try... More

Very basic but good value for money. Shower was a bit dodgy with intermittent hot & cold water which was not fun given the freezing temperatures outside. Good wifi, friendly, homely feel with good free soup every night.

We stayed for 4 nights in the 'Gold Room' out at the back of the hostel. It was a little shed, but soooo cosy! We didn't spend much time in the communal areas but found everyone to be really friendly, especially the staff (Will was great). The kitchen was well stocked and though the fridges were full, we were always... More

We really loved this hostel, for many reasons. The private room was good, free Wi-Fi, a hot tub (very nice after a day of skiing), parking available, and free international calls. Also free soup every day, I didn't have any myself but it's a nice touch. The only thing that was bad was the kitchen. It's so dirty. It's hard... More

Great service from the tall English guy at reception!!! Wish we only had longer to spend relaxing to enjoy fully all the free comfy inclusions very affordable and wicked views.
