For the last three years we have stayed here as we have two older teenagers and the cost in Queenstown can be outrageously expensive!
We are not cheepskates, but find it incredibly frustrating to find accomodation that is well located, warm, cost effective, provide full kitchen facilities and allows for an eclectic mix of patrons that all members of the family can enjoy!
The Queenstown YHA has a 2 bedroom unit that ticks all the boxes. It's not flash, but it's well appointed, clean, warm, excellent bathroom facilities and right on the lakefront!
Our kids love it (bus leaves for Coronet Peak in the morning from the front door), staff are brilliant (young, happy, friendly - kind of reminds me of the days when my wife and I were young!)
Occasionally there is a bit of noise from the guests (do you blame them?) having a bit of fun.
Seriously - if you have teenage (or older) kids and you want to have a ball in a cost effective family unit (nobody knows about the 2BR unit!), this is the place - you will NOT be disappointed!!! Full kitchen facilities (Oven/Microwave etc etc)
