    Very comfortable and clean accommodation. The location is also convenient and the room has a nice view to the lake. There is just one thing is that the fridge is not cold enough. Definitely come back here when I travel to Queenstown again.

    Good spot just outside the main city centre (so it's less crowded and not as loud at night) with a nice view of the lake. The staff were very friendly and helpful. A good spot to meet other backpackers.
