The hostel is located in very close proximity to everything you need - great restaurants, snow transport, bars and is right beside the lake. It felt like home away from home, cosy foyer (with fireplace) and great room with spectacular views. You would pay much higher for this quality in a hotel, super value for money. The staff were also...

Having been in a few hostels during my trip to New Zealand, I can safely say this has been the best I have stayed in so far. The price was very reasonable given the great location and the staff were very friendly. Moreover, it had a very clean and modern feel to it. There was also a very sociable atmosphere....

Ive been away for nearly 8 months now and Absoloot is seriously the best hostel I have ever stayed in. The staff are so friendly and couldn't be more helpful.

I was a bit worried about staying here, given anything that is an "absolute" value is generally not the highest quality but this place was really great. The room was super clean and tidy, all the washrooms were as well. I never went in the kitchen so can't comment on that. The staff were really friendly and helpful, especially about...

Hi there, It's great to hear your enjoyed your stay! It's a shame you didn't get to check out our kitchen - we're pretty proud of that one. But we can agree that our location is pretty special, and we can't blame you if you happened to have a Fergburger for every meal instead of cooking, we find it pretty...

Epic location in the middle of town next to bars and shopping. They offer free earplugs to deal with noise from the street, but that wasn't an issue for me. As you check in you get wifi codes for however many devices you've got and it worked really well for my needs. 24/7 common room with a TV and power...

This hostel is in a prime location amongst bars and restaurants so if you are up for a good time this is your spot. The staff are great, make a real effort with everyone. The Internet was out for a couple of days during our stay which was annoying, even when it is up it is not great. We were...

Hi there, Thanks for your comments, we really appreciate it! We apologise for your issues with the internet access - you obviously stayed during a period where there were some troubles with the provider, which is why it was down for a couple of days.

Modern, clean and with friendly staff. Comfy beds, secure rooms.. Everything you could want from a hostel! Free ear plugs and towels was convenient not that earplugs were needed because the rooms were well sound proofed. Was great having your own bathroom in the room too, as well as closet storage and a heat pump, luxury!! Amazing central location and...
