I stayed for 4 nights there in a doublé room, a Little bit small but it was ok. Toitles or bathroom in general was ok, clean in my opinión, same as kitchen. Young people, a bit noisy sometimes but still ok. Well located and affordable Price.

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

Nice place, nice people, nice manager. Only 2 min walk to town. Dont stay here if you are looking for a quiet place. A lot of party all day long! Awesome for young backpackers who are looking for making new friends. Very clean too!

Very nice and helpful owner and staff at Deco Backpackers! If you are searching for a cheap and good hostel with free wifi and a great view in Queenstown go there! It`s only a short walk (5 min) to the city.

This was the worst hostel I experienced in NZ, I thought important to say it. You can't sleep because of the noise made by the 18-20 yo drunk and unrespectful people sitting outside. And the owners don't say anything. Also, the hostel is smelling feet all the time, and the kitchen is dirty (you ha Ve the feeling to be... More

I had a great time here over christmas. The manager Tony was great with us and the facilities were very pleasant and clean. Free wifi which is always a godsend. I would recommend to any backpacker who is looking for an independent hostel as opposed to one of the chains. Great back garden also with good views of Queenstown
