On the first of december 2015 I came to Deco`s. Before I did so I travelled the northern island. I intended to stay a week in Queenstown. But Deco`s changed my mind. I had already booked my flight back to Germany on the 9th of december. But I cancelled it. Chris, the manager, is a really friendly guy, who is... More

Good location, just a few minutes away from the city centre. Nice common area and outdoor area. Unfortunately it a bit old and not very clean - neither the room nor the bathrooms. Men's toilets doors didn't lock and there was mould on the wooden benches in the showers. Smelly carpet. Internet working only in the common area (indoor). Quite... More

Saw a couple of bad reviews in the past, but I actually found this place to be quite good. Staff were very friendly and helpful. They went to great effort to rectify a mix-up with the booking. Very basic rooms, as you would expect at a backpacker hostel. But clean and reasonably good facilities. Decent shelving/storage in the rooms, free... More

Decos was an okay place to stay, and the people who had it was nice, but strict. Pros: - Clean sheets - Cheap - ideally located - good kitchen - Nice guests and fun evenings - beautiful garden Cons: - Not clean under bed - Old hostel - I could feel the springs in the matress, and some of them...

Stayed here for 3 nights. It's located off the city center so besides the occasional drunken guest who stumble in the early hours (can't avoid this in QT anyway ;)) , it's nice and quiet. No blankets on the beds which I found a bit weird. Toilets and showers are fine. Kitchen itself is quite small but has heaps of... More

A group of fellow exchange students and myself stayed here and enjoyed our experience. Tony, the helpful owner, graciously went out of his way to help us newbies (to the backpackers world, that is) when we got into an accommodation bind. He ensured we all had a warm and safe place for us to stay. We mingled with others and... More

Loved my time at Deco's, stayed for a total of 3 months. There is a big communal area with a large kitchen and TV room full of bean bags, perfect for a cosy night in or a duvet day after a heavy night out. This is a very loud, social fun hostel so if your looking for a place to... More

We arrived an hour early before check in but they were happy to check us in and the room was ready. Staff were very... More

This hostel is the main reason why I decided to stay for a month in Queenstown without a job. The hostel itself is a cool place, it's situated in a quiet area right outside the center of Queenstown and a couple of minutes away from the lake, bars and restaurants - hey, we're still talking about Queenstown eh, it's not...

Its something like a party hostel, so be aware. The rooms are nice, with shared bathroom. It has a big kitchen and dining room. Locates just a few blocks from centre. Made really nice friends here. Totally recomend it!!!!!
