Property Description

Nomads Queenstown is backpacking in style and is the winner of multiple awards since we opened our doors 10 years ago

This fantastic purpose-built property is located just metres away from Lake Wakatipu in central Queenstown, with views of the snow-capped mountains.

We have large and small dorms with or without ensuite and family suites. All dorm rooms have lockers which can hold a computer (and charge it at the same time) as well as hanging space and reading lights for every bed.

Our amazing hotel-style king rooms come with flat-screen televisions (with SKY and sports channels, very important when the rugby is on!), fridge, iron and ironing board. Our hostel is sure to impress.

The property also has a fully equipped modern kitchen, a movie room, an amazing lounge with a fireplace, a sauna, internet access with free WiFi throughout, a travel desk and ski storage.

We have our very own travel gurus at both our information desks, who can help book all your crazy activities and forward travels.

This amazing property is an experience in its own right and a must-do on your trip in New Zealand. We want to make sure people have a great time with us here and our friendly staff will make that possible.

We have a 48hr cancellation policy. Late cancellations and no-shows shall be charged the equivalent of the first night's accommodation.

Please note we are a dry hostel, but we're lucky enough to have our own bar so you can get your locals deals!

Please be aware that whilst we try our best, we cannot guarantee reservations will all be allocated in the same rooms.

We love our hostel we hope you love and respect it as well. View House Rules

Overview

Feel right at home at our fun and friendly – did we mention award-winning? – hostel, Nomads Queenstown. We’re perched on the lake in the middle of town, with envy-inducing views of the mountains. Take it easy with other travellers in the movie room or by the fireplace in the lounge. There’s also a sauna – just the thing to restore your muscles after a long hike. Every night we treat you to free food at the bar, and you can upgrade to get a drink and even more food! There’s a free breakfast every day too, because you'll need the fuel for mountain adventures.

Location

Find us on Church Street, surrounded by cafés, restaurants and bars. Bit of a thrill-seeker? Get yourself to Kawarau Gorge (a 45-minute drive) for the ultimate adrenaline experience – bungee jumping. Or if you prefer to take it easy, the Central Art Gallery is only a 5-minute walk from us. It’s easy to get around in general, with the nearest bus stop (Blue Peaks) an 11-minute stroll away. Stay on the bus for just over 20 minutes to get to Queenstown Airport.

Rooms and Dorms

We have privates with or without en-suite, family rooms and mixed or female-only dorms. Charge your laptop and keep it safe in a locker, then read way past your bedtime in peace under your reading light. All that free breakfast means you might expand into one of our hotel-style king rooms, which come complete with flatscreen TVs (with Sky and sports!) and a fridge to keep your beer cold.

Extras and activities

Save cash and cook up your favourite dishes in our guest kitchen, then hit the games room for an epic pool and foosball tournament. You can book your onward travel plans using our free Wi-Fi, but if you need recommendations our knowledgeable gurus at the travel desk will do their best to help – plus we have free city maps. If you’ve come to hit the slopes, we’ll keep your kit safe in our ski storage.

    Nomads Queenstown is fabulous, it's like staying in an hotel, except that you share with strangers, which, for me, was very pleasant. Friends of mine stayed in the YCA, I went to visit them there, and it's not half as nice as Nomads and it was more expensive! Nomads is modern, clean and the facilities are excellent. I'll stay in a Nomads again in different areas and hope they're all as good as at Queenstown.

    This is a great Hostel. Great location and kitchen facilities are very good. Jenica, the activities director does a great job. She is friendly, outgoing. The bathrooms could be a little cleaner, but otherwise a clean property. I would recommend this property.

    Lovely staff. Great big rooms. Got a free upgrade. Massive common room. Tons of people booked rooms on the spot. Huuuuge shout out to the incredible staff that's always eager to help guests out. One of the best hostels I've stayed in.

    Great staff, awesome location. The facilities (when not out of order) might be pleasant to use. The fridge space is lacking as well as not enough pots.

    Just a typical party hostel really. Very noisy as surrounded by bars, kitchen was too small and messy. Alright for a night sleep but not my vibe really

    Pros: - friendly roommates, very welcoming to a solo traveler - easy to socialize in this environment - large kitchen and lounge area - key code security for each hostel room Cons: - loud music across the street until very late - locker hinges were broken - bathroom door locks were broken - sauna was out of order - bathroom flush buttons were broken - very much a party/drinking hostel
