This is a great wee hostel in Queenstown. Unlike others, there is always a kitchen open so it's great to cook whenever you want. It's also kept very clean.
It's just slightly out of town which is ideal because you don't get the all-night noise that central town has, and it's right around the corner from the main supermarket.
A few reviews down talked about the need for new furniture - well, they've upgraded and it's awesome!
It definitely is quite crowded at the end of the day, but it is nice how communal and friendly it is.
The spa and bikes are a great bonus. I really love this hostel!
