Property Description

Welcome to Adventure Q2 Hostel.

Catering to young independent travellers from around the world we offer mostly shared room accommodation and run in-house activities most nights a week to make it easy to meet new people from around the world.

Our beds are custom designed timber bunks with comfortable innerspring mattresses. The Village Green is right across the street to enjoy a drink in the sun, our common areas are large for a small hostel which allows plenty of room to engage with fellow travellers.

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.

Being right in the heart of town, you’re close to everything.

Designed and created by the owners of the multi award-winning Adventure Queenstown Hostel, we’ve taking our years of experience to build a hostel that is specifically designed for all a traveller needs.

Located in the very centre of Queenstown, you're a 2-3min walk to everything, including the Village Green just across the street. View House Rules


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.

    I tried not giving this place a perfect score because there's other *elite* hostels in the world I probably regard slightly higher. But when I thought about each category it was impossible not to give each a perfect score. Probably the most comfy beds/pillows I've ever had at a hostel, amazing staff, a beautiful range of facilities kept spotlessly clean, interesting activities every night and great spaces for socialising in different ways. An amazing hostel in a beautiful part of the world.

    Booked hostel after reading great reviews. honestly the photos do not do this hostel justice. I booked 6 bed dorm with en-suite. Cleanliness is exceptional, not a spec of dust in sight. Loads of shelves to put shoes, an personal items away, also cupboard for suitcase/backpack. Shelves also above bed, a personal bedside light and USB charger with wall pocket for phone! Bathroom new&modern, also extremely clean, sparkling glass shower door (hotel standard). Was cleaned every day. No bad smells.
