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.

Fabulous location in heart of Queenstown right next to park and middle of everything. Very clean hostel, my room was spotless and the ensuite was also super clean. It's a small hostel and the kitchen can only hold about 6-8 people but it's ok. Hostel is small but sweet.

Absoloot Value Accommodation located at Queenstown City Center, by the lake. All the water sports and cruises etc start at the jetty right beside the hostel so you can expect the atmosphere to be lively. The location is very strategic as all the shopping and restaurants are within walking distance. It is quiet at night and lively during day time....
