Property Description

Absoloot Hostel QT 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, Absoloot Hostel QT 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 bunks with power-points and reading lights at your finger tips.

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 hostel 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. Dorm 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 hostel. En-suite rooms have a fully-equipped bathroom including hair and body wash, as well as an in-room LCD TV, and 4-bed en-suite dorms 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 Absoloot Hostel QT and meet your travel family in your home away from home! View House Rules

    Loved my stay at Absoluut! The people at the front desk are very nice! The bed is already made (no hassling in de the dark if you arrive late) and everybody has an outlet and reading light next to them. The bunkbeds are proper made and don’t feel like they are going to break down. The bathroom facilities were very clean!

    Definitely the best hostel I’ve ever stayed in. All the facilities (even the kitchen and fridges) were spotlessly clean. The staff was super friendly and helpful. Each bed had its own outlet and reading light and was very comfy to sleep in. Ideal location right next to the water with gorgeous views of mountains. My only complaint is my bed was mistaken for someone who was leaving and in the cleaning process my converter went missing. But that could happen in any hostel.

    Greatest hostel in NZ (well amongst the ones I've stayed at). Great friendly and very helpful staffs, convenient location, good crowd and fairly clean. Deffo would recommend AVA as your top choice for when you visit Queenstown.

    Loved staying here, the staff were so friendly and helpful. Accommodation was comfy and clean and the views from the kitchen were beautiful. We are currently staying in another hostel and wish we were staying back in Absoloot.

    Cosy hostel in a great location. Friendly staff. I stayed in a private double room and had a great view of the port/lake and mountains! Hot chocolate in the room was an added bonus. Wifi was strong.

    The hostel is in the perfect location. Everything is in walking distance. The common areas are lacking in atmosphere since it is quite small and dark. The hostel has no parking lots. However, staff can advise where in Queenstown parking is for free (street parking).
