First time in Queenstown and the Hostel did not disappoint. Right near the waterfront and central to all the attractions. They provided us with everything we needed and the kitchen/shared bathrooms were very hygienic. No problems with our stay other than no private parking but the free street parking was only a few minutes away. Would definitely stay here again for the great price and hospitaliity!

Best hostel in town. I stayed here for the season 5 years again and it was the best back then. They’ve improved since then by building a larger kitchen. Clean, tidy, modern with on suit bathrooms. Can’t go wrong...

First time visiting Absoloot in what must have been a few years and it has only got better! It is worth staying just to hang out in the kitchen - it must be the best hostel kitchen in the world. Extremely central, clean, and friendly atmosphere. Wouldn't consider staying anywhere else.

I reckon Absoloot Hostel is THE BEST option in central Queenstown! The staff are exceptional, bedrooms are immaculately clean, and the location doesn't get any better (and all at bargain prices)! The kitchen has a fabulous view with Cecil Peak and Remarkables mountain range.. plus the atmosphere at Absoloot makes it even more likely that you'll to meet some awesome fellow travellers during your stay. Cheers Absoloot crew, I'll be back :D
