We booked this as we wanted a very central location in Queenstown so that we could walk easily around the central area. The price suggested that it was budget but we were pleased, it exceeded expectations. The room was compact but very clean with a little en-suite and windows overlooking the town. The windows were double glazed and had internal...

My Travel mate had never stayed at a hostel. She was apprehensive and wary about the experience. As soon as we walked in the door Jamie greeted us with warmth and concern and let her know that all (the room, storing luggage,)would be well taken care of. When I had difficulty obtaining access to my flight information the front desk...

Loved the twin bed room with ensuite bathroom, fridge and microwave. Very quiet and clean. Kitchen has the best view of harbor in town. Jamie at the front desk very helpful in making one feel welcome, has a wonderful sense of humor, and knowledgeable in Queenstown locations and activities.

I work in Southland, so during my days off I usually go to Queenstown for a leisure time. I've stayed in quite a few hostels and backpackers, this one is absolutely one of the best. Great location by the lake, convenient to visit places in town, friendly staff and fortunately got some great roommates, too. Windows in the room got...

I want to give five points because it has everything. A great location with lake view, large and clean rooms which every bed has it's own power supply, a great kitchen and friendly staff. I just want to raise one issue. I know that the fridge was cleaned at my departure date but is that a reason to throw my...

This is an awesome hostel. It's great value for money, the facilities are clean, the staff are uber friendly and you definitely can't beat this place for location. The view from the Kitchen overlooking Queenstown Bay is fantastic!

Hostel itself is great- location fab, room (4 bed dorm with bathroom) clean and comfy, kitchen well-equipped. However the front of house staff member we dealt with, a Scottish guy, was quite superior and rude and his manner made my friend and I feel unwilling to ask him questions or to book any tours etc. Recommend hostel but shame about...

Loved this hostel. Decent price for a bed with bathroom in the room. Sitting in their kitchen having coffee overlooking the bay was a real treat. The kitchen windows open up so you feel like you're sitting on the pier.

Booked this place on the recommendation of a friend for a last minute trip to Queenstown and I'm so glad I did! The cleanliness, facilities and staff could rival any hotel in the area! The best thing about this place is that because staff look after and respect the facilities, so do guests which is great to see (especially as...

Solo mum with 5yo son. Our room was a good size, clean and well equipped for our 8 nights in Queenstown. It was so central we could walk outside and have a picnic lunch on the waterfront right next door, my son loved this! The staff and other guests were all very friendly and welcoming, having chats and playing board...
