    This is one of the few family run hostels left and it has a lovely homely feel. Everyone is made welcome The hot tub wasn’t working as they were waiting for a part but we were able to use the sauna. It is worth spending quite a few hours walking around Lake Matheson

    Sweet hostel in the wild world that is the West Coast of New Zealand. All kinds of weather can happen but Ivory Towers hostel is consistent and hospitable through our entire stay. Would love to return

    During our stay at Ivory Towers, a rockfall closed the road for our onward journey, meaning that we would not get to Queenstown on time for our flights. The staff at the hostel were unbelievably helpful with their advice on what to do next and who to call for more information. Jamie at reception allowed us to occupy the space for several hours to use the phone and computer to rebook/cancel everything and was so generous with her time and advice. Thanks to all we got to where we needed to be!

    I stayed for only one night. The girl at the reception was really kind to give some nice advice to what to do in town, now that sadly the access to the glacier area is possible only with helicopter. The kitchen is quite big and there is plenty of shared space for everybody. There is also a spa (but I didn't try it). At night it is pretty quiet (it is not definitely a party town). Would recommend for anybody who is traveling along the west coast and wants to spend one day in the glaciers area.

    Very Good

    The hostel has everything you need except perhaps, lockers in the dorm. It's TV room with an extensive collection of dvds was a definite plus in a quiet place like Fox. The dorm or common area didn't feel that homely with the exception of the TV room.

    This hostel wasn't too bad or too good. The rooms were a little outdated and ours happened to be really hot with a very limited amount of sockets. The showers were good and clean with plenty of hot water but the bathroom doors did not provide the wanted amount of privacy. Kitchen and general areas were pleasant. Staff was not the most welcoming. Location was good.

    Well located but that is about it... toilets and showers are mixed male+female and are not very clean... the kitchen is big but not many appliances. No individual sockets or lights for each bed, in fact there are hardly any sockets in the room! Wouldn’t go back... Also we were stuck there due to the storms and while other hostels were giving the guests some beer and weren’t charging them for the nights they were stuck, the owner at ours was just worried people paid the extra days...
