Stayed in a homely cottage along with another couple. Staff were friendly and helpful to get us on buses to treble cone and cardrona ski slopes. The room was fine for the price paid, although they could have sprung for nicer pillows and the walls are thin which made sleeping tricky on a couple of nights when the group upstairs... More

Stayed with a friend at Southern Laughter and loved our stay. It was perfectly located, the staff was nice and everyone was welcoming and laid back. Perfect place to stay at while in Queenstown wether alone or with friends as there are plenty of opportunities to have fun and make friends. Would definitely come back.

Ive stayed in many hostels and was extremely happy with Sir Cedric's Southern Laughter. Not only were the people working their friendly they were more than happy to assist in any way possible. The rooms were very clean, with daily servicing. Very comfortable place to stay and would recommend to any one wanting fabulous cheap accommodation.

Other than the untidiness of the place it... More

Perfect location, good theme and fantastic front desk service! I thought the bathrooms were pretty rank though, although I will pass exception to that because it was a busy Friday/Saturday night that we were there.

Lots of long time guests at southern laughter. Kitchens were dirty, bed was dirty, room was smelly, no individual outlets or lights, small room, lots of belconies which is cool but not when people smoke on them and it drifts into your room. No a/c so it can be hot... Or I imagine pretty cold. Wifi is alright, people seem... More

Hey! Surprised to hear from you after 6 months! seems like you visited us during the hottest time of year! Due to Queenstown having a predominantly alpine climate- (which means snow on the mountains for most months of the year brrr!) we find we generally don't need air con and that opening the windows generally gets enough fresh air through...

It is quite cheap for a twin room. This hostel also has free wifi unlimited and free international to call to landlines. The soup provided every night is the best and suit this cold winter weather. The location is in the city centre so it is easy to access. No bond is required. This hostel is the best choice for... More
