I stayed there for 2 nights during Easter 2015. The place has an excellent central location however there is no parking, so if you have a car you need to park near the gardens. The good thing is, you don't really need a car in Queenstown as you can walk everywhere. The guy at reception helped me to book the... More

Hostel is lovely, very clean and large rooms. Had a ensuite double for two nights, as good, if not better than a hotel room! 8 bed ensuite was lovely too! The only one i had issues with was the 4 bed female only dorm, the ensuite bathroom wasn't cleaned after the 3 girls left and it was disgusting, i had... More

Stayed here whilst on the kiwi experience!! Loved it. Amazing location. Big hostel. Nice rooms with good aircon although some rooms had too many beds in for the size they were! Good free dinner (small portion and first come first serve but you often got seconds). Friendly staff. Good clean bathrooms. Big seating area in the kitchen and lounge with... More

This is a really nice hostel if you love to go out and party every night. It is clean, the staff are friendly and the room sizes are good with comfortable beds. It is also in a perfect location with walking distance to everything in the town. Unfortunately the noise of the hostel is a major let down. We were... More

This is a very well organized and run establishment. The staff will bend over backwards to help you with anything, anything from back up raining day plans to where to find a good steak or helping book a pick up for a tour. The bathrooms were very clean, the beds were comfortable, the safe in the room was small, but... More

Lots of party-focused bus backpackers. It's right downtown so the environment is pretty loud, especially on the weekend. However, it's super easy to walk to anything in town and most of the shuttles and busses drop off right near by. I stayed in a women's dorm both days and they had an ensuite and balcony. Amenities were well maintained. Pillows... More

Clean rooms. Showers had a good pressure and good temperature. Very modern building. The have proper storage for luggage and a separate space for ski, bikes, etc. Just the bed could be a bit more comfortable... Overall good quality, I would stay here again.
