This hostel is right in the centre of town between the lake and the centre - Fergburgers and all the tourism/tour booking offices is around one corner, the lake is behind it! It's very clean, they have great towels and bathrooms, the kitchen is very clean and cosy! Security is good too - we each have our own swipe cards to get into our rooms!

The facilities would also have received an excellent rating except that the kitchen was very small and closed during the night. It was supposed to open at 7am but I went down three times and it was still closed. Since I had an 8 o'clock bus to catch, I had to buy breakfast which was a bit annoying. I had a fridge and microwave in my room and could have made breakfast there but I didn't have any bowls or utensils. The kitchen should be 24 hours.

I appreciated the courtesy, friendliness and help of the staff at Absoloot Value Accommodation. Thank you for storing my luggage for a week while I hiked the Milford and Routeburn Tracks. The kitchen was always clean during my stay at Absoloot Value Accommodation and I really appreciate the work of the staff to keep the premises clean.

Four bed dorms are reasonably sized, light and airy. There is street noise as it's right by pubs but closing the windows helps

AVA was surprisingly quiet for it's prime beach front location. Everyone staying there was respectful of the kitchen- kept it clean and organized! Really great that you got a towel instead of using your own. Only downside is that you havere-log into the wifi each time you want to use it! Great value overall!

The location is great, clean bathrooms. The kitchen is small and it gets busy very often. Nice staff.

Really nice location by the water, staff are super sweet and all seem to get on really well. Wifi is not great (but ok). Kitchen is a bit small. Rooms are clean and beds are comfy. Would recommend.

Generally, convenient place to stay. The upper bunk bed in the room we stayed were facing just inches below the air cond which is very inconvenient and uncomfortable with it blowing intermittent cold/hot air directly during sleep. Brought matter up to staff, but were told we have no choice due to fully booked. Suggest management to look into alternate suitable arrangement for bunk beds.

It is a perfect place to stay after a hike. They have a kitchen, and the the facilities are good. However it might be really noisy in late hours

Blown away by the facilities! Thought is accidentally booked us into a more expensive suite but it turns out all the dorms are so clean. 4 bed dorm had its own bathroom and a mini fridge. Lounge area was nice and the kitchen kept well cleaned. Phenomenal hostel. Just note that many of the male workers have games to see how many girls they can sleep with. I know some enjoy that part of travel but this is the 1st time it's been so obvious during my stay.

Quite tiny kitchen with narrow paths and the volume from the street was quite high even when both window layers were closed. Otherwise not much to say, good hostel with clean rooms and good location.
