Rooms were clean, reasonable size and all have ensuite bathrooms. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Common room was the highlight with great views of the lake and a decent tv/speaker combo. Great environment with all guests feeling welcome.

Great hostel, ticks all of the boxes. It would have been better if the lift was working but that's the luck of the draw I suppose. This place was warm, friendly, central, clean and cheap. I would certainly stay here again.

I've been to Queenstown three times. Twice I've stayed at Base, which was okay but Absoloot was far better. My boyfriend and I got a double room which felt more like a hotel room complete with ensuite bathroom, mini fridge, microwave, kettle (with tea, coffee and hot chocolate), TV and a super comfy bed. Great location in the middle of... More

And just a few walks you can see the lake, the market and the best burger restaurant in town, Fergburger. The receptionist also nice. But the only bad thg abt this hostel is we have to park... More

Absoloot hostel has the best vibe, best location, cleanest and most spacious, and most backpacker friendly rooms in Queenstown. I've stayed in a few hostels in QT, i can't fault this place! There's a comfy tv room with pool table, lakeside views, and the most chilled friendly atmosphere. All bunks have got their own plugs n lights and bathrooms are... More

We had a corner room on an upper floor with huge windows on two sides facing the water and dock area. The rooms have individually controlled AC and heat. There was a microwave, fridge and coffee maker in the room. Free wifi was very much appreciated. Excellent location only a few steps away from restaurants and shops. The front desk... More

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

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
