I liked the hostel however we had a couple of issues. A lot of the large rings on the cookers dont work so it can take a while to cook food. Shelf space is limited as staff seem to have about 75% of the shelfs taken. Bathrooms were spotless in fairness however the 8 bed dorm we were in was... More

We stayed here over a long weekend and it was pretty good. It's in a nice location and it is easy to get everywhere in the town. It was clean and tidy and the staff were friendly. They have luggage storage for free. Wifi didn't reach the rooms and you had to pay for it, so we used our data... More

We stayed here twice, at the start and end of our NZ holiday. The first time we were on the 'western' side, facing the Gondola. This side is definitely the 'noisy' side. Some nights the bass pumping out of one of the clubs below was overly excessive. However, it's easier to just join the party... which we did. The 'eastern'... More

This hostel was great, reception staff were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Free breakfast (literally just bread with spreads) and free dinner at the pub every night, so it's a dream for anyone on a strict budget. Good sized kitchen with all the utensils that you could ever need, very well stocked. Hostel common areas were always... More

Probably the best location in the city, awesome views of the mountains. Nice and friendly staff, really helpful. Free Wi-Fi during the day, free breakfast and free dinner at the loco's pub. Overall, a really nice place to stay in beautiful Queenstown.

This is such a great hostel. Ideally situated, everything is an easy walk away (pubs, shops, tourism services) and we were able to park our car for free within 5 minutes of the hostel. There's a well-equipped kitchen where you can cook and store all our food. The staff were incredibly useful and supportive and were willing to go well... More

Stayed with my partner for 3 nights. Room was clean. Staff was nice. The sitting area with fire place was really nice for chilling. If your a light sleeper you might struggle with the bars being literally right down below. But I loved the close proximity to everything you need!

This was one of the last stops of our Kiwi experience, had the best time at this hostel! Free dinner and breakfast is so good for a poor backpacker! Very strict at night about keys but guess that's a good thing! Staff are friendly, everything was clean!
