Spent a few nights in Queenstown and really just needed a place to sleep as the days were jam packed. Nomads is in a great location, super clean, friendly staff, awesome all the way around. Definitely worth the extra few bucks for a four share dorm, get your own bathroom! Also free breakfast was clutch! Definitely recommend staying here!

There isn't a negative thing to say about this hostel! My friend and I were in an 8 bed mixed dorm and there was enough space for all of us, including a balcony area to hang out washing too. The kitchen/diner/living area was huge and really homely. They have plenty of sofas to sit on and a pool table too.... More

I come back to Queenstown once a month for work and every time I stay at Nomads. They have always been the only choice for me for numerous reasons. The place is spotless and every day you'll see dozens of cleaners tidying from top to bottom. Rooms are comfy and having an ensuite and a balcony like you get in... More

I stayed here for 5 nights as part of the Kiwi Experience and it was very enjoyable. The whole hostel was clean including rooms, kitchen and bathrooms. The staff were great and happy to help out if needed. I really enjoyed the location as well, even though Queenstown is small, this is almost on the waters edge! Thanks guys.

This is a really good high quality hostel with some awesome and caring staff people. If you ever plan to stay here I recommend you go on the wicked Ice bar bar crawl that runs every Monday with Chris and Ben! Guaranteed a great night out!

With the kiwi experience. Nice accommodation kept it clean with lots of people coming through. But the staff were rude. Average kitchen facilities not enough for the amount of people staying in the hostel. Would not stay here again

The place is constantly busy as is the rest of Queenstown. I stayed in a twin room and an 8 bed dorm and both were very good. Situated a road away from all the bars and food joints, it has a great location. Worth the extra bit of cash to stay in a decent hostel. As you step outside, you... More

Without a doubt the coolest hostel I've stayed at. Has an elevator and sauna. The rooms are very nice, although it is quite loud at night. No parking at the hotel, but the staff told me about a nearby lot with parking for NZ$2.50/day. Hostel seems to organize activities as well.

We stayed in an ensuite room and was pleasantly surprised to find the rooms pretty much like any other decent hotel room, albeit a bit smaller. Even though, it was nice, clean comfortable and extremely well located. Would surely be my choice of hostel when I return next to Queenstown. Big thumps up!

Loved the 3 nights we spent in the hostel.. the location cannot get any better... we had a ensuite room which was tiny but manageable if you put your luggage under the bed :) Added advantage was we had a huge shared balcony overlooking the Monty's pub and the street... great to have morning tea or read... Only disappointing part... More
