Really great hostel. Amazing location, pretty much om the lake so very central. Super friendly staff. Comfy beds. Free towels amd wifi. Fantastic artwork on the stairs.
Only booked this place because it was the cheapest of what could take a booking of 4 in February in Queenstown but was so glad we booked. Highly recommend this place.

Having hostel hopped for 7 weeks in Queenstown Absoloot was by far my favourite hostel. Clean and very pleasant rooms and excellently equipped for backpackers - individual plugs by your bed, hooks for your towels, clean duvets that you don't need to sleep with a sheet over you first (It's the little things!) and a lovely kitchen with beautiful views. Also cheaper than Nomads/Base etc and it's a much much better hostel.

Jamie on reception was also always very helpful and accommodating - from giving directions, putting DVDS on / helping me turn on the TV and constantly booking me into rooms nothing was ever too much trouble. Thanks Jamie!!!

Left this hostel this morning and was really impressed, it's in a great location and the view from the kitchen is beautiful.

The beds are super comfy (and good pillows, which is always something in a hostel!) and everything was clean.

We had an issue with our key deposit checking out, but reception manager Chris was great over email and sorted everything out for us.

Great central location. Had a double room for one night and being so central was easy to get around and catch shuttles etc. a bit noisy outside in the park Saturday night. Staff were very helpful. Good coffee at Fergburger Beach St.

It's not luxurious, but it offers anything you need. Located in the centre of Queenstown nightlife, restaurants and world famous Fergsburger are at your doorstep. All the major avtivities and collecting points for tours are in short walking distance too. All thiscomes at a very good price that makes a stay in expensive QT affordable. Rooms are simple and tidy and the staff is very helpful and friendly.
