Lots of street noise for front rooms which is fine if you are a party person, but maybe not so great for those that go to bed early. Wifi not great, didn't work some of the time.


Very nice staff. Because it's located on the warf, it's a little bit noise on the night. Very nice room !!


Great stay, great hostel, spacious room and convenient en suite. I stayed in nomads the previous time I was in QT, but much preferred Absoloot!


They upgraded us to a 4bed dorm which was cool. The atmosphere was awesome. All the travellers there are nice! The kitchen had everything you need too. It IS a bit small but you're there to cook and not to chill so that's alright. The staff clean up very well and the whole building is clean. The talc perfume that they use also smells very nice. The staff were helpful and nice. They even called a lot of other hostels to help out a girl that needed a place to stay that one night. amazing service!


The location can't be beat. It's right in the middle of town so it's super easy to get anywhere. The rooms are nice, but there's a gap between the door & wall in the bathroom so there's zero noise privacy. You can hear what everyone is doing and they can hear you. Awkward. Also the kitchen is way too tiny for the number of people. It's poorly set up so you are constantly running into someone. The common room is a bit lifeless. There's great wifi though (and it's free) and the staff are great.


Great location. Room is a bit small. Upper bed is smaller than the lower one so if you check in late, you will have to stay in a small bed. Kitchen is too small so I can see a number of backpackers staying there prefer boiling water for their instant noodle rather than cooking their own food. Wifi is free. Overall, it is highly recommended!


It was an amazing stay, greatest 5 days of my life! A

Excellent location, clean rooms with comfortable beds.


This hostel was cheap and cheerful, exactly what I wanted for a couple of nights away. The room was clean and the bathrooms nice, the shower was one of the best I've had in a 'budget' hostel. The en suite per dorm leaved little to the imagination but it was nice to not have to wander down corridors to find the loo. Overall, I would recommend to anyone staying in Queenstown for a few nights on a budget.
