We have had an excellent stay! We booked a private room with an ensuite and it is just like staying in a hotel. Fantastic location (right in the city centre) and great service. The Mad Travel desk were also fantastic! Most of our bookings were managed by Denny. We always received exceptional service. The crew also provided friendly tips about... More

So I stayed here for a week when I was in Queenstown. First off, really cool city. The hostel was clean, the people for the most part were pretty cool and the location was excellent. My only issue which is not the problem of the hostel is that because it is so large you don't get that family/communal feeling as... More

The facilities at this Nomads are so nice. The lounge area is huge and cozy with big couches, a pool table, balcony, and a fireplace. There's also a comfy cinema there with beanbags and movies available to choose from downstairs. Along with that, the kitchen is pretty spacious and they serve a free dinner every night! There is usually a... More

Although this hostel is on the pricey side- you do get what you pay for. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and the kitchen/sofa area was a great place to chill out too. The staff were friendly as well. However they are extremely strict about alcohol- a bit too strict- and the staff often walk into your room unannounced to... More

Fantastic location in the heart of Queenstown. We stayed in a Deluxe King Room, but to be honest for the price that we paid we weren't that impressed. The room was quite small and the shower fan was going continuously (very noisy). When we told the hotel staff they said that all of the fans are on most of the... More

Stayed here for a night while bag packing around the South Island. Warmly received by the staff and placed in a 6 man room. Although we had our own clean toilets, the rooms were a bit too small for 6 people. Apart from that, they had a nice kitchen, free breakfast and a large TV lounge for travellers to chill!

We stayed here for 5 nights while on the kiwi experience. It was probably one of the best hostels we stayed in - mainly because it was so sociable and because Queenstown is so great! Although the price isn't cheap, you definitely get your moneys worth as you get free dinner and breakfast. Its not a banquet or anything because... More

I have given such a high score because I lived in NZ for 1 year, mainly in QT so I tried plenty of hostels. I founds Nomads was the cleanest(bedrooms and showers/toilets) and the location and atmosphere was great. When I first arrived I stayed in dorm rooms and after a while I started to stay in the private doubles... More

Really friendly and accommodating, been here for two weeks now and loved every minute of it. Great staff, really clean and comfortable!! If you fancy a bit more privacy go for the ensuite, but really makes no difference! Would definitely reccommend
