Great ensuite 4 bed dorm and the included towel, shampoo and tea/ coffee were unexpected bonus in the room. Not so good was the charge for WiFi; seriously, who isn't offering free wifi these days? It wouldn't have been so bad, but reception dropped in and out in bedrooms, even having paid the extra $2 for premium speed at $6 a day (their basic charge $4 connection so I hate to imagine how poor that is). Get with the 21st century Base!

Rooms cleaned daily (sometimes too often - housekeeping knocked 5 times before midday!) Bit annoying that plug sockets are all located in 1 corner of the room & are limited (Base - you should know by now how vital plug sockets are to backpackers!!) Great location & Loco bar had some good deals. Although this bar is connected to the hostel, if you stay in Nomads instead you get a free meal there every night! Worth thinking about if choosing between the 2...

Stayed here two nights during our stay in Queenstown. The location was very good, near everything and the fact that there was a bar next door which they had deals with makes it even better. The facilities were lacking, only a few plugs for charging phones etc. in each room but otherwise good. Beds were comfy but creaky, staff were really helpful organising activies. Overall would recommend as location is so good and was cheap for what it offered.

The hotel is conveniently located, walking distance to all the activities to do in Queenstown. I was a bit disappointed by the facilities provided: only 2 power outlets in a room of 8, shared bathrooms were really small and not really convenient, and wifi is at an extra cost. The bar downstairs is quite nice, not too noisy if you're staying in the hotel above (I was on the 2nd floor). All in all, convenient if you're just looking for a place to crash, I would not stay there for too long though.

Ok for teenage backpackers, but wouldn't recommend it if you're looking for a quiet, mature place to stay.

Horrendous. Lasted 1 night and had to get another hotel! I understand basic, but this was NOT basic to an acceptable standard

Only good thing i found about this hostel was the staff as they were super helpful. All the other aspects of this hostel are shocking. I was in an 8 bed, which had only 4 plug sockets located on just one side of the room.The door didn't lock to our room and i was told by the staff that this was a common problem on the whole of level 2 as the doors are too big for the frames. Timed showers / Closing of the kitchen facilities at lunchtime for cleaning.You're unable to eat in the TV room & more!!

Needed a place to go. Took recommendations and got here. The 4 bedroom option was awesome. Less people, slightly more and had more privacy.
