I stayed here one night in a triple room.. The room was very small and I didn't have enough space to put my stuff inside (as the other two guys were there before and got most of the space). It's feels a bit damp, and the rooms have a little kitchen shared just with another room. But it's a bit... More

Located a little outside the main part of Queenstown the Southern Laughter Hostel was a good choice. All the important things such as supermarket, booking services and bars are at hand! I was staying in a 4-Bed Dorm and although it was next to the reception and had a window towards a balcony it was surprisingly quite. The shared facilities... More

The location is fantastic but the "free, unlimited wifi" never did work for me over four days and three nights. I was told it was because the wifi "didn't work well with Apple devices." The staff was friendly but not very helpful in that regard. My room was sparse but clean. My shared space was a bit grotty but I... More

I really enjoyed my vacations during my stay at SLB. The staff members are friendly and caring..! love the atmosphere, positivity around the location, which is three minute walk away to the happening shoot-over street. i made couple of friends there and enjoyed the sceneries and mountains too. Thanks to SLB crew for having me there, I will definitely visit... More

Enough space to find the vibe you desire. For me it's a quiter one served by the second kitchen with the bay window. I could go there early in the morning and have the space to myself. That's peaceful in a destination dominated by a younger traveling demographic there for the nightlife.

There was a small inconvenience with our reservation and they gave us a really generous discount on all nights. The stuff was friendly and helpful. The location was great. Close to the center and close to the naked bus stop.

Spent 4 nights here, really friendly staff, nice atmosphere, good sized rooms, we were staying near reception so got wifi in our rooms but I understand that isn't the case if your are located in the other building! My only issue was there was only one toilet and shower located downstairs so often had to Wait but apart from that... More

Don't really know what I can say about it as i'm more used to hotels but I was pleasantly surprised by this place. Seriously good location I thought, we weren't the most accomodating of guests as we were there for a stag but nevertheless it all worked out well without anyone telling us to shut up. Cleaned daily, our room... More

Lots of nice people to meet there. Though my room 3 didnt have internet but overall, i would like to be there once more. close to... More
