Had a great stay, super clean, helpful staff and comfy room. Central location and took advantage of the free bikes! Would 100% reccomend!


Terrific hostel, special mention to the guy on the desk, I think his name was Ali, who went above and beyond to help me out and show me what to do in Queenstown


Lovely place, a short distance from the town center but still very close by. Supermarket nearby. Excellent stay! Friendly staff!


Great place and the staff was really helpfull. Close enough to the main streets, but also far enough to provide some quiet after spending the day in the bussy centre of Queenstown. Loved it!

Flaming Kiwi is a great place to stay in Queenstown, great central location, 5 minutes walk into town, nice that you're away from the hustle and bustle yet still easily close enough for an impromptu night out. Awesome place. Great power sockets in lockers.

I had a really enjoyable time in the mixed room, staff were helpful and the location is not in the centre of town which makes it nicer.


Very good accommodation. Everything is cleaned everyday. The free WIFI is very good, although getting new password every 24h is not the most convenient way. The private bathroom in our dorm was great. The spa was too hot (43°C), probably because of a broken thermostat. I didn't use the bikes, but it was good to know they were available.
