Nice hostel, clean, good facilities but our room was way too hot... you have to ask to get the air con temp lowered and the next day it seems to go back up.. not comfortable waking up sweating early in the morning. Half the staff are friendly, half don’t seem so enthusiastic.

This is not a party hostel, quieter crowd, so depends what you’re looking for.

A truly special location, right in the middle of town and with beautiful views of the lake. Staff are super friendly and helpful too.

We had a queen room with our own bathroom & fridge, which was really clean and light, with a mega comfy bed and a little fridge. The only issue is that it can be a little noisy, not bad if you're partying, but on the days we weren't and were getting up early to hike/do activities it was a little frustrating. However, nothing earplugs can't fix! Would defo come again. Thanks for a lovely stay!

This was probably the nicest hostel I have ever stayed in. Staff were welcoming, helpful and professional. They kept a clean hostel and made sure everyone enjoyed themselves. The location could not be better. You are right downtown Queenstown, just steps from the beach and the best nightlife. Rooms were clean and limited to four or six guests. Our group occupied all four beds and we felt like we were in a hotel. Bathrooms were clean and kitchen was tidy. I can't say enough nice things about this place. We will definitely stay again when we visit Queenstown.

What can I say- Queenstown is an epic place but to have a Hostel place in the centre of town with a lake few at the same price as any other hostel in Queenstown is epic. Each room has an en-suite facility as well as awesome share bathrooms. The kitchen has a view that cannot be beaten by any 5 star hotel in Queenstown. Free WIFI, Free Towel what more could you ask for as a backpacker!! Staff are awesome well informed and know all the local secrets.

Anyone who finds this hostel less than 5 stars is a fool!! Great value for money epic location great facilities I will be back!!

Thanks again Absoloot!!!

Room Tip: 4 beds are epic!!!

Couldn’t have chosen a better place to stay. We had a 4 bed room with an ensuite, tv and A/C. The kitchen was clean and had a lovely view overlooking the beach. The communal bathroom was so clean and the staff were wonderful and the price was so affordable!
