Location and cleanliness were awesome! The staff were friendly and helpful, bathrooms inside rooms were relatively small but the larger bathrooms had plenty of showers with hot water. Lounge indoors with fire is very welcoming with a small outside area for smokers connected to it. Has a little movie theater area which is great for relaxing after a big day.... More

Very big hostel and with free toast and jam for breakfast and small dinner, there is ample opportunity to meet people. Love the rooms that have belconies but indefinitely suck when people decided to smoke on them! Beds and not that comfortable and squeaky but they are clean. New building, but you have to pay for wifi. Go to the... More

It's a great place to stay due to its convenience to the town centre. Big warm, clean rooms are extremely inviting as they provide clean sheets and towels. The only down side to this hostel is that it is too crowded. There was no space for us to relax in the lounge or to use the main kitchen. It got... More

Beautiful location in the heart of Queenstown! The hostel is situated 2 minutes from that lake and main streets. Very basic rooms but really comfortable with nice bathroom. Really good sharing kitchen and amazing common areas! Absolutely recommended!

Staff were super friendly and helpful with every query I had. Room was emaculate, cleaned everyday and had amazing views of both mountains and lake. Great location, smack bang in the center of town and close to shops and most restaurants. Activities booked through their travel desk (with Kat and Chris) were epic and had a blast on their weekly...

My boyfriend and I stayed at nomads for a week whilst house hunting. We had a private ensuit room which was so nice. The room had a great little balcony with mountain views and a flat screen tv. The room was pricy but we were happy to pay abit extra for some relaxation and peace and quiet. The staff are... More

I usually don't like nomads hostels but this one sounded good and had a great location and it didnt disappoint. I wasn't there too long so didn't get to use all the facilities but having a sauna, cinema room and what looked like a well equipped kitchen are all really nice touches. My room had heaps of space for everyone... More

Our room got woken up at 5am by the police because someone in the room was arrested. Myself and 4 others were then asked to move rooms at 4.30am. The staff wernt very understanding and refused to offer a discount or free night for the inconvenience of having to move rooms in the middle of the night. On my 2nd... More

Nomad Hostels I usually find a bit average, but I was really pleasantly surprised by this one. It had decent free wifi in the lobby which you could actually use. The rooms were good, slightly on the small side but clean. The location is great, right next to the lake. They did have free dinners every evening too, it is... More

The facilities of this hostel were awesome. Lots of common area seating, good kitchen, cinema room, lockers in the room, good bathrooms, free luggage storage. Loved the free meal around the corner at the pub! It was lovely to have a balcony in the room and the staff were really friendly. Nothing bad to say about this place!
