Pro- The hostel location is good, very close to the beach and Queenstown Garden. The staffs I met were helpful and friendly. The view from kitchen window is fantastic. Con- Very small kitchen compared with the number of rooms so it was really crowded during the breakfast and dinner time. Small amount of dry/clean tea towels in the kitchen. We...

Did not get any information from her. But...

We chose Absoloot Value accommodation mostly for the central location in downtown Queenstown but we would happily stay here again. We chose the more expensive Deluxe room but Room 380 is well worth it despite its small size it's corner room views right on the landscape and lake are beautiful. The building offers backpacker accommodation so there is access to...

Stayed there one night with family. Definitely love the view from the room and kitchen at second floor. Room is clean and the elevator is plus point. It is strategically located in the central of the town.

This place is amazing. Wonderful location, amazing staff, clean rooms and both times I stayed here my shared room had a nice clean bathroom that gets clean every day. They also give you free wifi for each device you have and free towels. In all of my travels this has been by far my favorite hostel. Great job to whoever...
