Property Description

AbsolootQT welcomes you with a variety of accommodation options for the independent travelers, families and groups alike. With the best location in Queenstown, you’ll get to enjoy the convenience, view, and quality that you only get from a stay with your friends here at Absoloot.

Designed by travelers, for travelers, AbsolootQT is owner-operated and equipped with everything you could ask for. Have breakfast in the best hostel kitchen in New Zealand, talk to our staff for advice on the coolest adventures around, and sleep in comfort in sustainably designed custom beds with power-points and reading lights at your finger tips. Some of our multi person rooms can also be booked privately for families, triples and couples.

If you need more privacy, take a look into our Queen and Double configurations, and enjoy the sort of comfort some hotels don’t even provide. You can also enjoy peace of mind from the fact you’re in an accommodation provider that cares, with sustainable practices employed across the accommodation to keep our environmental impact to a minimum.

Each room has been fitted with double-glazing and shutters to keep the heat in and the noise out. And there's a heat pump/reverse-cycle air-conditioner in every room, so you can stay warm in Winter and cool in Summer. Multi person room guests can enjoy fully-made beds with toasty duvets (doona’s), large individual lockers for every bed, key-card door access, individual reading lamps and power-points, and Free Unlimited Wi-Fi throughout the property. En-suite rooms have a fully-equipped bathroom including hair and body wash, as well as an in-room LCD TV, and 4 person en-suite rooms come equipped with a fridge as well. Borrow a free fresh towel from reception if you’ve forgotten your own, free earplugs if you’re a light sleeper, and free smiles all day long!

Speaking of smiles, you’ll have one all over your face once you step into our guest kitchen after taking one look at that view. Grab a free coffee, tea or hot chocolate, spice up your life with free spices while cooking on quality electric stove tops and ovens in a fully-equipped kitchen, and lose yourself in daydreams about the experiences available on your doorstep.

On the down days, take a moment to sort those dirty clothes out in our commercial on-site Laundromat with brand-new machines. Then while you’re getting your life in order, you can relax in our 24hr lounge room, equipped with a Nintendo Wii, XBox 360, board games, book exchange, and a travel nook to book the next leg of your journey. An LCD TV for video games and a Smart TV for your ‘Netflix and Chill’ should stop any arguments about what’s on, but that’s only if you haven’t taken advantage of the adventure deals available from the team at reception – there’s no excuses to not get the most out of your Queenstown experience.

So just get in touch with the team at AbsolootQT and meet your travel family in your home away from home!

    Without question the best hostel I have ever stayed in. The staff have been wonderfully friendly, contributing massively to the easy-going and fun vibe the hostel offers. It couldn’t be located any better - nothing in the village is more than a five minute walk away. The room was well laid-out, with all three of us very comfortable and cosy for the entirety of our trip. I couldn’t recommend staying here more!

    Right in the centre of Queenstown with lake front views from modern kitchen facility. Rooms and bunks are also modern with en-suite bathrooms and cleaned daily. Also amazing value and staff are very helpful and friendly. Probably best hostel I’ve stayed at in Queenstown location wise.

    Loved my stay here! Great location in the heart of Queenstown with amazing views from the kitchen. The reception staff were very friendly and had a good laugh with them too! The hostel was very clean with great facilities such as the kitchen, communal bathroom, lounge and reception area. The lounge was definitely my favourite place to chill out in front of Disney+ & NETFLIX. Nice to see such an accommodating hostel with all kinds of people staying, Family’s, couples, large groups and individuals

    -The swipe activated lock on the door to my room didn't work which resulted in the person in my dorm knocking loudly to be let in at 1am in the morning, waking me -Lack of separate bathrooms, toilets for different genders. I have no problem with gender diverse/trans people using facilities (male or female), this should be inclusive but I would also like to have female bathrooms to feel comfortable. Male/female dorms would be good too. -Person at front desk seemed rude.
