Great location for being in centre of Queenstown near everything you need. However all the girl dorms are over the street with bars in it so it's noisy at night. A shame because the 4 bed girls dorms are lovely, hotel standard bathrooms. Really nice common areas. Half hour of free wifi. The free meal is nice touch but is more snack size.

Thanks for your feedback Victoria, glad you had a good stay with us. As we are located in the centre of town there can be a bit of noise especially on the weekends however we do offer free earplugs for all guests as well as triple glazed glass windows/black out sheets. Apologies for this and I hope you had a great stay in Queenie - Cheers, Nomads Crew :)

I decided to leave as every backpacker did not shut up about the bungee jump.

Compared to the other hostels I've stayed at in New Zealand, this is definitely one of the best. It's huge and more like a hotel, but it has a big kitchen, lots of bathrooms, and is in an excellent location.

Location is perfect. Middle of queenstown but isnt every hostel? Its an oke hostel, clean rooms, a bit small, big kitchen and common areas.. It does the trick and perfect for some nights out in qt! Although i think for that money they dont offer anything special. A few smaller hostels in qt which are really worth staying at for the same money or even cheaper. But then again nomads is always a great place tp meet people

Good location. Nice staff. Very sterile hostile with no atmosphere. The no drinking policy leaves less people conversing and hanging out. More people just sitting on the internet.

Dear Guest, thank you for your feedback and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. The no drinking policy was put in place due to consistent complaints about silly people ruining everybody elses stay. There are plenty of bars just a stones throw away to hangout and enjoy yourself also. Thanks again and we hope you enjoyed the rest of your travels. Kindest regards Management @ Nomads Queenstown

A good hostel in an excellent location in Queenstown town centre. Had a comfortable stay with clean rooms and a comfy dorm bed. A little expensive relative to the rest of NZ but then everywhere in QT is. Very much a 'large' hostel, so will depend on what you're after; facilities are excellent but perhaps lacking in the atmosphere of smaller, more communal hostels.

Great location. Probably a bit on the 'older' side to have stayed in this hostel. We didn't really use any of the facilities, eg brekkie, dinner etc.

The hostel where kiwi ex stop so expect lots of people. Free breakfast is just toast and evening meal is snack size, queue early and don't expect any seconds! Bit too big for my liking.

Overall, this was a great hostel. Free (light) breakfast and dinner, lots of shared facilities, good layout, balconies adjoining the rooms (handy for drying clothes), and on and on. My main complaint is that the shower temperature was a little unstable, which resulted in occasional shouts of "Ow, ow, ow, why did the shower suddenly get burning hot!?".

The staff were very rude! When it came to the free dinner and breakfast, staff and friends helped themselves to massive portions, leave a mere snack for everyone else, they went as far as putting food in containers for meals later on! It was unbelievable. Breakfast was late getting out on our last day, we did not get to eat because our bus was coming. The staff always looked hung over and smelt of booze. Also, our rooms was right over the top of a night club, the base vibrated us awake all night

Great location - but q bit impersonal, as it's a huge hostel. It's nice that they do a free evening meal each night

Do not stay in the rooms that face the back side, the bars are open till late, often noise will last till 4 am.
