Brett and his welcoming energetic team have put a ton of effort into creating the ultimate hostel experience. There's a great atmosphere, its super clean, everything's modern (including USB and plugs for each bed and in every locker)...Here're some details...
>There're organised events every weekday night (quizzes, roast dinner, PlayStation challenge, etc) which creates a very social experience.
> Solid wooden beds with clean rooms and plugs with USB slots next to every single bed
> Modern clean bathrooms with great showers
> Modern clean kitchen with everything you need
> Great central location right in the middle of town but still not noisy at night
> Locker room to store bikes, snowboards, etc with built in lockers, each with its own plug
> A huge comfortable lounge with a massive range of movies, etc on a big TV
Basically its like a hotel in the form of a hostel!

Room Tip: Book early - they're very often full over busy periods - which in Queenstown is often!

I absolutely adore AQ. The staff are incredible- not just friendly, but so knowledgeable and eager to help. They will book tours for you and go above and beyond to make things happen for you (they worked with a few companies to get me where I wanted to go even with weather not cooperating). They will try to save you money and really want you to enjoy your stay, not just tolerate it. Super secure storage area if you need to leave your bags to go on a Great Walk for a few days, outlets and USB chargers over every bed, very clean and modern rooms and bathrooms (and cartoons on bathroom doors so you have something to read!). Simple little touches that make this hostel awesome to stay in. They host dinners twice a week that are cheap (amazing in NZ) and delicious, and a great way to meet people. I absolutely love this hostel and the people who work there. And it helps that they're right in the middle of town. Go there. Just do it.

This hostel was awesome in every aspect. Starting from the basics -- perfect location in the center of Queenstown, the beds are comfortable, there's plenty of space in the rooms, good clean toilets and showers, good clean equipped homey-feel kitcfhen, and friendly staff. All of this would have been enough to merit a 5 star review, but this hostel goes above and beyond that! They have free to use computers and ipads. They will lend you a GoPro camera for free, free international phone calls, they do the laundry for you, the lounge is really fun with a huge TV. I could go on and on about all the small things that make it perfect (like the cute pocket for phones near every bed + 2 power sockets + 2 usb sockets) but the bottom line is that this hostel is run by people who know what a hostel should be like and take continuing care to make it as best as they can!

I spent 5 nights at Adventure a year ago and I still remember how good my stay was. Besides the fact that it is very conveniently located, clean and everything, what impressed me the most was all the customer-friendly designs all over the hostel.

To start with, there was a small sack pinned to the wall right next to every bed for customers to put their phones, keys and other small things in there. And there are plugs right next to your pillow as well, for you to charge your electronic devices conveniently.

Moreover, the bathrooms are super clean and super nicely designed. Every shower has extra space outside of the shower door for you to hang your towels and clothes.

Third, for some reason the hostel really attracts responsible travelers who would try to be quiet when they came back to the room late and who would do their dishes and keep the kitchen clean.

It was a very comfortable and relaxing stay. Definitely one of the top hostels on my list. :)
