There is a tour desk where our friendly staff can help you plan your activities, as well as a separate storage/locker room with secure bicycle parking and ski & snowboard storage. We offer loads of free stuff and even a simple laundry service.

We’re a smaller hostel with a maximum capacity of just 55 beds – ideal for meeting new people and fun times.

We know how to make your stay here at Adventure Q2 Hostel epic. As well as being a home-from-home pad with laid-back communal spaces, we also double up as a tour-booking agency to help you experience the best of New Zealand. There's rock climbing for the brave – and wine tasting for the thirsty! We'll help you capture the moment with a free GoPro loan. There’ll be plenty of chances to meet other travellers with our hostel activities. Snuggle up in the lounge on movie night or head out on a pub crawl. When the weather's fine, we get the barbecue going and hang out on the terrace.


We’re in the centre of Queenstown, a great base for adventures in the area. Bungee jump off Kawarau Bridge (23km away) or hurl yourself down Coronet Peak (16km away) on your skis. (We’ve got snowboard and ski hire here too.) To find us from Queenstown Airport, just hop on the number 11 bus which stops 50m from our front door. The Intercity Bus and the Naked Bus will also bring you within 30m of us at Athol Street.

Rooms and Dorms

There’s nothing better than curling up under your duvet after a day outdoors – that’s why we’ve fitted out the cabin-style bunks in our shared dorms with innerspring mattresses and privacy curtains. If you'd like a bit of extra space, you can book our en-suite double room. You'll have air con and heating, as well as free linen, towels and lockers.

Extras and activities

Heavy backpack? No worries – we’ve got an elevator. When you arrive, use our free Wi-Fi to let everyone know you’ve arrived safely. Our lounge comes with big sofas, cable TV, a PS4 and Netflix. There's a shared kitchen and you can grab a free hot drink, too. Pick up a free map and hire a bike from reception when you're ready to get some fresh Queenstown air.

    We loved staying at Adventure Q2! Anne and Jorge were awesome at the front desk and helped us set up our adventures. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and everyone was very friendly. We really appreciated the beds as they have lights and outlets, as well as shelves for your things. We were two girls in a mixed room and felt very comfortable. They also have locker rooms, which we were able to store our luggage after checking out before leaving town. Would definitely recommend this hostel!

    Best hostel I’ve ever stayed at. Q2 has thought of everything, including the small details: - extra hooks near your bed - built in shelves in the bunks - huge functional windows in the room - great kitchen, common space and bathrooms - free gear to borrow (bikes, go pros etc) - very good quality laundry machines - touch-screen Spotify in the kitchen for queuing songs - SUPER clean and cozy This hostel has ruined every other hostel for me. Why can’t they all be like this?

    Just. A great hostel. Amazing facilities like a lounge with movies, a we'll equipped, social, and clean kitchen, clean and large bathrooms with hot and high pressure water, many things to lend like go pros, free towels, good free food selection. WiFi is excellent and locker rooms are secure and we'll organised. Bunks are the best we've ever slept in with lots of shelving, storage, and plus outlets. Staff are knowledgeable and nice. Location is central and activities are advertised and bookable

    Great hostel right in the heart of Queenstown! Hard to beat this central location. Parking is a bit of an issue as you either have to pay for parking nearby or park a little ways outside of town. Very nice hostel to stay in, nice rooms and facilities. Overall, no complaints!
