    The best hostel I've stayed at bar none. First time in NZ and the folks at Absoloot were super accommodating and friendly. Sean and Sarah both helped me book and finalize activities around Queenstown and they were always ready to lend a helping hand. The place was also super clean, lots of storage, and very conveniently located in QT. The place and the staff are absolutely great!

    Epic location, our room overlooked the lake and it was so beautiful! So central as well so perfect if you don't have a car! However it is right on the waterfront so definitely amongst the hustle and bustle and was a tiny bit noisy at night but overall loved it and would absolutely stay again!

    Great hostel right in the middle of Queenstown! Hostel was very clean, had good beds and bathrooms and offers a nice kitchen with lakeside views. Also it's staff is really helpfull to make your stay comfy and succesfull. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone who visits Queenstown. Although I can imagine the place is a bit noisy if Queenstown's nightligt is fully on again.

    Stayed here before hiking the Milford track. Very friendly and helpful staff. Location is excellent. Only comment, for a 6’2 person the bunks are a little bit short. Won’t hold that against them though, as it’s a nice place to stay and would definitely stay here again

    Lovely hostel super central to all the main attractions of Queenstown! Good facilities and lovely staff, although our room was very close to the kitchen and nearly always smelt strongly of food and cooking (not always good cooking). Would still definitely stay again!
