I was staying there for 3 days, in six bed mix dorm. All I feel for my experience is all great.

It is located right in front of the lake in downtown queenstown. I stayed at room 203, and the sunset with mountain scenic looked like a beautiful painting , and it goes untill the sun is all set.

You can spend afternoon around the pear, or at the public park next to hostel, with many birds flying and some ice cream.

The hostel itself really strategic even if they don't have car park. Trust me because my car got fine for NZD 40 on 3rd night because parking right in front of the hostel on weekend. after I search for my knowledge, Actually the space park the hostel said is loading zone and parking for dissable. Not for public. Beware yourself

The rest is all good. The front desk Jamie is all nice. Hi Jamie, Thx for lending us the laptop to transfer file. The Wifi also worked very well. You can ask for login password for each of your devices, well there will be some different codes.

The housekeepers are all nice. I met some of them do the kitchen, the room, and the laundry store (the detergen costs NZD 2, and so do the washer and dryer), The kitchen is PERFECT , the scenic, the atmosfer, the any ingridient they have, also tea, coffee, and chocolate ! ♡

Don't worry about finding food. feed yourself all you want. Much restaurant, from any country around the hostel. Don't forget the ice cream and Ferg Burger!

The excellent value and great service is why I keep coming back here. It has to be the best hostel in Queenstown. Always really clean with a good atmosphere and the staff are always willing to help no matter what the issue. Excellent location right on the lakefront and 4 bed dorms have everything including a double bed- you might be lily enough to claim it when you check in! Free wifi and amazing lounge with sky sports! Looking forward to my next visit!

I've stayed three weeks in AVA before to find a room to rent and i've enjoyed my first weeks there. Really comfy bed, actually a double for me alone and i kept it during the three weeks! Sunny room and clean bathroom. Great kitchen with everything you need. Awesome view of the lake! Guys at front desk really friendly, kind and helpful.
I really recommend it!

Room Tip: Four bed dorms have a double bed.

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!!!
