Great place! Queenstown is a small city so downtown is about a 5 minute walk. Nice views of the lake and mountains!

Wonderful location, just a short walk to the center, and lovely view from the room (but then again Queenstown is just gorgeous from any angle). Staff were really helpful, and happy to answer any questions as well as book activities for you. Was travelling solo and met some lovely people at the hostel so would highly recommend.

Good hostel good location however very cold in the room despite small heater. Also on the first day cleaning came in the room before check out time which we did not appreciate

This was my first time in NZ and second hostel stay here. I loved the location- being able to sit on the bean bags in the lounge upstairs and look out over the water/mountains as I read was great. Everyone was also super friendly and gathered for movies/a big dinner every night. The most annoying thing was that there's no common bathroom so you'd have to go back to your room every time or walk to the public ones in town if they were in use, but that was a pretty minor complaint! I'll def be back

Hostel was very cold in the NZ Winter, the heater didn't work in the first room I stayed in. However the staff was amazing and provided extra blankets and hot water bottles.

The stay was good! Everyone we met were very nice and accommodating. The staff is amazing- super friendly and made me feel welcomed. There was old gum on the top corner of my bed post though which was kind of gross, but that hardly matters since it wasn't somewhere I would constantly put my hand. The rest of the place was pretty clean.
