Chose this hostel after hearing someone say comment on the great value and environment. Did not regret my decision and decided to stay a second time after a few weeks.

Rooms and en-suite toilets were clean and tidy - of course, this depends on your room mates as well. Really love the view of the lake and town from the kitchen. It's great that the facilities and utensils in the kitchen were also clean and well-maintained. You don't always get this in other hostels. Also love that there was a charging outlet and reading light at each bed. There was also a mini-fridge in the room.

Only complaints might be the unstable wifi. Also, I decided to start my day slightly later on one day, and the housekeeping team came into the room without knocking - and they came in more than 3 times that same morning as each staff/team had different roles. Should organise and finish the room at one go instead of disturbing the guest multiple times.

The hostel is very quiet for a hostel located directly in Queenstown which was very cool. It was very clean too. Fresh Towel everyday was amazing. Free Wifi but slow connection. Helpfull Staff aswell. Only Negatives for me were the Kitchen which is not bad but way to small for the amount of people. Best to avoid busy times. Beds were a bit unstable.

Excellent Hostel. Good prices for accommodations, bathrooms were very clean, also the rooms. Staff was very cheerfully and helpfully,
Amazing view from the lake when you was at the kitchen. The only negative point was the internet, but who cares.

Room Tip: Picked uo the mixed 6 dorms, has a bathroom in it.

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 shutters to make the room dark. We slept well, maybe the kg of fresh cherries that we ate during the day helped! There is a great shared kitchen but also a microwave and fridge in the room. The staff were very friendly and always happy to help in any way.

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 (especially Jamie) took great care of us, assisting us with his computer. We felt the staff at the hostel took much better care of us then all the "nice" hotels that we had stayed at during our main tour. The room was basic but comfortable and had a microwave and refrig to assist with meals. The kitchen had a great view of the Lake and had all the amenities. Needless to say, I can see staying at hostel's like Absoloot Value will be in our future.

Room Tip: Some rooms may have a water view but we had views of the hills
