Affordable price for a good hostel. It s perfect if you want to stop between Queenstown and Milford Sounds. We booked 2 beds in a dorm, and what we really appreciate from the reception is that since the hostel was a bit empty they ve put us in a private room for the same price. Not everyone does it.

This hostel had fairly helpful staff, clean rooms and good facilities. Myself and two friends got a triple room which was very good value (only marginally more expensive than getting a dorm room) and whilst it was basic it was warm and had plenty of places to hang up wet towells and clothes (which we needed after taking a walk...

It's clean and has the usual facilities but I've had better YHA hostels in New Zealand. The good point is its close location to town centre and helpful staff. However my pillow was as thin as sheet of paper I had to stack my clothes underneath it.

Cheap stay in a nice hostel. We only planned to stay here one night and then camp while exploring Milford Sound and the surrounding area, but ended up deciding not to camp in the rain and stay for another night. The hostel itself was clean and nice, with a well equipped kitchen and good dining area, and best of all... More

A very clean place that's convenient for travelers but also offers a homey vibe. There is an awesome TV room with bean bags and yoga mats with huge windows. The kitchen is large and has all the utensils you could need. Additionally there are board games and tons of movies. Reception is also very helpful.

Very friendly staff, large kitchen and nice outdoor area from the main lounge facility. Couches a bit worn but it's not too bad, private rooms are small, little space for bags if you're with someone, however they just renovated their storage room which is available to all during reception hours. Free wifi and about a five minute walk to centre... More

While I was on the Kepler Track, I befriended a fellow tramper (hiker) who mentioned how pleasant his stay had been at this particular hostel (and how fast the internet was); so, because I wasn't particularly fond of the previous place I stayed, I decided to give it a try. I could not be more pleased! Whatever request or question... More
