I was quite looking forward to stay in Absoloot as it really has very good review on tripadvisor. Unfortunately I was totally dissapointed. The reception staff is not friendly. In fact, the girl sitting at the reception just showed us that kind of "there is nothing i can do for you" face when we tried to inquiry on the remote... More

The smoke came from kitchen make the room so smelly. We choose this place because of lake view but we are not always there to view the lake but to rest... More

Absoloot value is probably the best hostel I've stayed in New Zealand. It's very clean, modern, you get warm thick duvets and they even provide towels! I think what makes it so special is the staff. They're constantly cleaning up the kitchen, they're all very friendly and knowledgeable and super patient (they also provide booking services and people walk through... More

For the money you get an amazing wifi, a room with a queen bed (if you are there to snag the bottom bunk), a private bathroom and shower and an excellent location! We got very lucky with our roommates. They had taken the top beds in our bunk bedby choice and left me and my girlfriend with two queensized bottom... More

It's tough for me to review Absoloot completely as I only stayed the single night here but from that experience, I think I can comfortably give it a good four star rating whilst adding some comments for your consideration. So to start with the positives: - very central...literally in the middle of everything so you won't have to go far... More

Value for $, friendly and helpful staffs who seems to remember the face of every guests. The rooms are clean. The lower deck bed is about as spacious as a queen sized bed. Even shower gel is provided in the soap dispenser with the essential free wifi access! (Big Bonus). Witnessed how hard the staff scrubbed the toilet floor one... More

Ensuite, choice of double bed if you check in early and everything you need. Free Wifi. Layout didn't feel very comfortable for me though, with the kitchen and lower lounge being right next to reception on ground level. Kitchen was also cramped. In good location but a good location is a noisy location when you're talkin' that close to town... More

Absolootely fantastic! We stayed in a private room with a queen bed and ensuite and got the best room in the place! Right on the waterfront on the top floor overlooking the stunning mountain scenery the room was beautiful and super cheap. The staff are really professional and friendly, definitely here to make friends and are down to hang out... More
