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.

    Had an excellent stay in an all-women’s dorm. Unfortunately I was only there for a night but would have loved to stay longer. Perfect location, super easy to get to from the airport because it’s close to the bus stop. Room was clean and te bed was comfortable, beautiful view from the balcony as well!

    I can hardly fault this hostel! Ideal location, big communal areas, comfy beds and modern bathrooms - just make sure you bring earplugs, the clubs outside are unbelievably loud!

    Facilities were great and staff helpful. However, it is a very big hostel, with lots of people and although a nice vibe, not the best I have ever experienced. Great for a night or two, but wouldn't stay for an extended period of time.

    We had an enjoyable stay at Nomads. The reception staff are really friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious. Bathrooms are very suitable. Kitchen was too small, crowded and very messy with insufficient amounts of utensils, crockery and fridge space. If you don’t plan on using the kitchen then I’d recommend staying here for the location and atmosphere.

    Fine. It was really crowded in the kitchen and lounge area, but then again I was here during high season.. Beds were comfortable, bathrooms were clean. Overall, not a bad place to stay if you don’t mind a really busy hostel.

    Wasn't very nice. Had a bad experience from the start. One of the people at the 'infomation' (sales) desk offered to sign me in but said my room wasn't ready atm (doubt that was true) and proceed to try sell me literally anything and everything in a VERY pushy way. I felt very uncomfortable and he was almost hostile when I kept declining. I think he might have also faked a phone call to make it think he was giving me a good deal. Rest of the hostel was pretty meh, not great.

    This is one of the worst hostels I have ever stayed in. My room was incredibly dirty with stains and loose clothing all around the room. The kitchen was a mess and no one washed there dishes, there was rarely any clean silverware to use. The bar behind the hostel played EDM music until 3 am and I could feel the vibrations was not able to sleep!
