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

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!!!!!

The worst hostel we've ever stayed in. Seriously, we booked two double private rooms. They were smelly, like unbearable. They acknowledged it but had no other room left. The whole place is dirty and the staff was very expeditious. One of the rooms was outside, where everyone gather. People were making noise and playing soccer against our bedroom door all... More

This hostel is not very welcoming at all! When checking in we were greeted with someone who looked as if she didn't care at all, we were shown round briefly and hurried along which made us feel un welcome from the start! Our room was OK, there were a lot of bugs on the bed which was particularly very nice!... More

Upon arrival when I was ready to pay I didn't know that the rate I saw was with the BBH card, which we didn't have. The owner was kind enough and charged us the lower rate anyway, so I thank the hostel for the kindness. Our little double room was comfortable enough and the outside garden had an amazing view....

This is budget. So can't expect too much. We got a double super room. Ok and fairly clean but noisey coz near common room with lots of young people drinking till late.Won't stay again unless hard up for money. The rooms inside house smelt funny so lucky we didn't stay in there.

Worst hostel I ever been, looks like a beehive, the staff are terrible and arrogant, rooms are small dirty and smelly, the kitchen is small any they never wash the dishes. Honestly I've been in many bad backpackers but this is more the bad is disgusting
