The lounge closes really early which is upsetting. Got stuck in a room with 5 guys who were on long-term stay, did not really mesh with my travel plans. Better organization of rooms would have made my stay better. The location cannot be beat! More activities and social outings organized would make this place even better. Kitchen is small and crowded but offers all amenities.

Great hostel in the city centre, close to everything. Room absolutely clean, bathroom inside. Double bed available for the same price (in 4 bed dorm). Free and excellent Wifi (so rare!). Nice view on the lake. Great staff. Great common room with TV and pool table.... Definitely recommend this hostel to stay in Queenstown!

Very good hostel. We booked a double room which is on the top floor. The view of the room is fantastic, the slow mountain, the lake and the lovely lake square.

Location is great. Clean room.

Restroom door was very noisy. You could wake up the rest of the guests in the middle of the night just by going to the restroom.

Nice hostel to stay at. Room was clean and comfortable and there is a lift for those with big suitcases/bags. Location is great, main strip in Queenstown just a few minutes walk (Queenstown is pretty small anyways). TV/games room closes at 10 or 11 which may be annoying for those wanting to stay up late but it's still great to have the facilities. The 4 person room I stayed in had lockers which was great. Atmosphere was ok, not as good as others i've been to but still recommended.

We stayed there for 5 nights and we really enjoyed our stay. The Hostel is really cool incl. Free wifi everywhere! The only thing which wasn't perfect was the cleaning in my room. Could be a lil bit better!

Negatives first - had to move rooms during stay (HostelWorld issue?), kitchen is tight. Lots of positives - staff are fantastic (Ryan in particular was excellent), location is great (central to everything, without being noisy at night), facilities are clever and practical (hooks sockets everywhere, seems like travellers designed/outfitting the place), warm fireplace in the common area, good and reliable free internet (unknown in NZ/AUS!). Overall a very comfortable hostel, with a fun atmosphere.

The staff at Absoloot are absolutely fantastic! They guys running it are clearly backpackers themselves and know what goes into a good hostel. Great recommendations, always friendly, and super chill. I'll be honest, the beds are crazy uncomfortable (you can feel every spring), but the amazing location, great atmosphere, and the fact that if you're lucky, you can get a double bed if you're the first one in the room, makes up for it.

Felt more like a hotel than a hostel -very high quality! Loved the double bunk bed and en suite, although the room was perhaps on the small side for 4 people. Great location right on the lakefront and great TV/pool room.

Staff are very helpful! Great location right in the middle of Queenstown. Had a great common room with its own pool table. Cheers

Awesome hostel and a very good location. Also free wifi and very clean. Staff is amazing, except for the girl with the red hair. She just looks cranky all the time and kind of unhappy. But all the others are GREAT. Would go back here again, FOR SURE.
