This hostel had the cosiest and most 'home-like' bedding of anywhere that we've stayed with big pillows and a fluffy comfortable duvet. The room was basic, but clean, with enough space to put our things. We were in one of the first rooms in the corridor from reception, so we had a short outdoor walk to get to the bathrooms... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights in one of the double rooms. The room was huge with beautiful views, the bathroom was right next to our room, so it felt like we were renting our own cottage. The location is a little out the way of the town center but only a 10 minute walk and you're... More

5 minute walk to town, but a bit longer getting back due to the hill. Fantastic views over the wharf and beach areas. Super friendly hosts who go out of their way to make you welcome. Appears there are a number of long-term guests staying as well. Kitchen and common room are both awesome.Most definitely will stay here again. Bookings... More

While the view from the hostel was beautiful, we wouldn't stay here again. The hostel is extremely old, the rooms are outdated and furniture is circa 1970. Not much of a hostel atmosphere. We did not use the kitchen facility, but it seemed to be an accomodating size. The wifi is only meant to work in the common areas, but... More

This is a clean budget place to stay but a bit crowded. This is grea when you are there to socialize and meet new people. The main living area is fun, a big space where there is wifi. Overall a good place to stay.

After arriving here for a few nights in Queenstown, we were not welcomed by the other people staying in the hostel- they were all workers and it was very much a 'working hostel'. It was busy, overcrowded and small. Good showers in the bathrooms- but I couldn't even brush my teeth the one night as it was full of girls... More

The management here were fantastic, super friendly and always happy to help. I was overall pretty impressed with Deco, the kitchen and lounge area is pretty cool and is open from 0700-2345, although this is pretty much the only place where you can connect to the wifi unless you're in a room which is opposite it. Kitchen is pretty well... More

The staff here are friendly and helpful. Guests are noisy and often drunk. I was here 3 nights and thought that Sat night was loud for obvious reasons and that Sun/Mon would be better. I was wrong. Many drunk young people running through the halls (thin walls too!) and shouting. Not easy to get sleep if you're thinking of hiking... More
