Pool was not working, heaters didn't really work and no lockers...but it was comfortable. Although it was full every night, there was little atmosphere, I had to get people to,drink or to chat...otherwise everyone had their head in their phones...maybe get some more organised things as a hostel

This place should be avoided unless you're smashed all the time & don't mind sleeping somewhere as comfortable as an old couch. Good: free wifi & soup. Bad: really uncomfortable sagging noisy bunk beds with no support, messy dirty kitchen with overfilled fridges, tiny toilets (some without sinks) with wet floors and a huge hole in the wall covered with paper, cold bedroom with just a duvet & no bed sheets or extra blankets, loud & inconsiderate guests.

Overall a very enjoyable stay. Free soup at night, friendly helpful staff, good atmosphere and easy to meet people at night, a fun pub crawl on Tuesday night and good location. Boiler room padlock wasn't secure and shower drains were blocked were the only negatives.

Great social environment! The hostel has a family feel where everyone hangs out with everyone. They organize group bar crawls that are free and are an awesome time. Free hot soup every night which is a huge bonus. The building is older and in mid winter a few of the rooms can get a little cold, and the limited amounts of plug-ins in rooms is a bit of a downer but other than that this hostel has everything you need. The people who run it are great!

Friendly staff, could maybe do with new frying pans. But very quiet at night whilst still being in town and a good selection of films.

Definitely a party hostel but most amazing place to meet people, drinks every night, many movies to choose from and an amazing atmosphere. HOT TUB DOES NOT WORK AND HAS NOT BEEN WORKING FOR A WHILE!

Good hostel. Location from central queenstown is not great, but the friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere made Up for it.

Really helpful awesome staff, loved the free soup too, wifi had a heap of popups though, and didn't love having to walk outside from the main area to my room

The atmosphere and staff were great and really nice and helpful. The setup of the building was inconvenient with most rooms outside of the main building and mattress wasn't very comfortable. But overall great backpackers place and the atmosphere made it a lot better.

I checked in on a snowy afternoon and my booking was upgraded for no cost from 4 bed dorm to private room, thanks to the lady in charge.The stay was pleasant.

Was very nice. They have a alcohol curfew at 10pm which I found quite nice since it avoids drunk loud people in the hostel. Very cosy common room and eating room. Room was nice, too bad there was only one plug for the room though. I really liked the decoration and the free soup every night at 6.

The place just wasn't clean, there were no cups to use for tea and in the middle of the night there was a fight in the dorm, I was able to sleep only 3 hours. I will never stay there again.

Stayed in Pipeline Room (seperate room outside building), very peaceful. This hostel promotes a lot of stuff like discounts for activities, meals etc. Decent showers and toilets. Very comfy beds, you'll have a good night sleep here. Staff are super friendly and very knowledgeable. Literally only a 5 min walk into town, the only issue is walking back up a steep hill back to hostel.

Man, this place was so excellent that we actually spoke about it on our tour bus to try and encourage everyone else to come there. Besides the generous freebies, the staff (especially the lady at reception) were consistently helpful, friendly and generous. The rooms were all I wanted, but it was the atmosphere that truly made me feel at home.

I stayed in 4 hostels in NZ, including another by the same owner, and this was easily the worst in cleanliness, common areas, and security. Cleanliness was like a summer camp in the wilderness. Not unusable, but you could tell only the primary surfaces get cleaned, leaving all else to accumulate layers of grime. Security was to lock the front door at night, but the back door was always unlocked. Lounges were so secluded from the rest of the house, I didn't notice them for days. Wifi was great.
