Great place! I spent 3 nights in a lake-view queen room (180). Super friendly staff, lovely room, efficient heater, comfortable bed, hot showers, etc. My only complaint, which is NOT the fault of Absoloot, is the noise around the lakefront once the bars close. Pack earplugs!

The elevator was broken when we arrived, which would've been fine with me if I didn't have to lug my suitcase to the 4th floor. One of the workers did help us carry our things, though. Other than that, I wasn't terribly impressed by the service and I also thought it was really pricey for what they offered. I did...

We stayed in a 2 person twin room with an ensuite bathroom. For a budget accommodation, this place was perfect. We had a tv, a fridge, a flat screen tv, and a remote controlled air/heating system. The room and bathroom were spotless, with people dropping by daily to vacuum and clean. The location was also perfect, with the lake, shops,...

We stayed in a double room (room370) for 2 nights( room very clean, microwave, fridge, TV), very comfortable. Then we wanted to extend another nite but the room was booked on the 3rd nite. So we were offered to stay in a room for 2 couples for NZ90 with attached bathroom. The room is clean and has a fridge and...

This backpacker hotel has one of the best views in Queenstown, looking down right over the lake and the steamship pier, with stunning mountain ranges in the background. We stayed in a double room right at the top (room 380?), for which the price was reasonable, especially for Queenstown. The facilities were good, the staff wonderfully warm and helpful, and...

The bathroom didn't look (or smell) like it had been cleaned for a week or more, the towels were clean but the toilet stank and the shower had mould and scum marks all up the wall. The rooms are very dusty and have only a tiny window that opens, so that makes them very stuffy when there are a few...

Great central location and modern facilities await you at Absoloot Value. My room was on the 3rd floor and while the view was fabulous, it was a little noisy (I could hear the music from nearby pub). The room was small but it didn't bother me. Three people would find it tiny.

Absoloot is relatively new, its been open about 7 months so everything is pretty damn clean! We stayed in a 4 bed dorm which was for Queenstown average pricing, maybe a little bit more than your average Base or Nomads but so worth it. It was £32 for a couple rate each a nice in a 4 bed dorm.

We are a couple in our 50's and were a little hesitant about staying in "backpacker accommodation" but we were so wrong. Absoloot Value Accommodation has undergone a total refurbishment in 2010 and the managers, Shaun and Nadine, were always friendly and helpful and made us "oldies" feel very welcome. Our room was on the top floor and had a...
