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

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
