One of the best hostel I have ever stayed in and the best in New Zealand. The location is brilliant in Queenstown. Very central and easily accessible. The room is very spacious with a balcony. Travelled with a group of friends and we got an entire room to our selves, with separate toilet and bathroom. There is breakfast served too... More

The best town hostel I stayed in New Zealand, magic pixies clean the kitchen and check everything running smoothly day and night. The reception are really helpful and run plenty of activities to get everyone involved. The on site travel shop is very handy. Just one point, they just need to get seals for the bottom of the showers as... More

We stayed here for three nights and really enjoyed it. The rooms are large and clean with shared balconies-unusual for a hostel. There are plenty of power points in each room. It's a huge place but isn't overwhelming because of it's friendly atmosphere and is surprisingly quiet during the night. Free breakfast and dinner is provided on a first-come-first-served basis....

I booked Nomads during early spring 2014 as I was looking for a cheap option after what had been an extravagant trip south from the North Island. The female 4 bed dorm was huge with so much space for suitcases etc compared to my stay a couple of years ago in a dorm room at Base Backpackers on Shotover St.... More

Man oh man! Chris was the best! Answered all my questions! Super fun and cheery, he totally knows what he's talking about. Also, his leopard tattoo is sweet as! The actual hostel is also fantastic! Right down the street from CookieTime, this place is a great spot for people looking to eat! They also give free brekky and dinner! Delicious!

Nomads Queenstown was fantastic all around! Frankly, this place has set my expectations of hostels far too high. My friend and I stayed for 5 nights and didn't want to leave! The rooms were clean, the staff always friendly, the kitchen and communal area were huge, and the location can't be beat. Queenstown is a small place, but Nomads had... More

After staying in some interesting hostels this was a very pleasant surprise. The rooms were very big and clean with large windows making it very light. The shower areas were always very clean and the kitchen and communal areas were huge with loads of space, making it a great place to relax. The hostel is in a great location just... More

Stayed in an all-female dorm for 6 nights for a ski trip. Location excellent, very close to all nightspots and shops. Also the hostel seems quite new and modern. Room was clean (as much as roommates allowed) and common areas clean also. Good kitchen facilities & great lounge/chill areas. They provide free brekky (toast & spreads) daily and also free... More

Great balcony, bathroom, view and comfy bed. Fab staff service for snowboard lockers and booking of tours, always happy to help you and there 24hrs. I left my... More
