Property Description

We have Free Breakfast, onsite parking and WiFi :)

Tahuna Pod Hostel is the very first Pod Hostel open in New Zealand and merges Maori heritage and traditional values into the fabric of its design. The intention is to share insights into this beautiful culture through art, music, movies, food and entertainment.

Each of our pods have been handmade here in New Zealand using sustainable materials. The Pods all feature a lined privacy curtain, individual power point, individual USB point, individual reading light, individual shelf, high quality linens and luxurious pocket sprung mattresses, as a minimum. There’s plenty of room for you to sit up and read or stretch right out for a glorious nights sleep.

Common areas include a large balcony/BBQ area with awesome views over Queenstown, TV Lounge, Dining Area, Kitchen and airy atrium. We’ve made sure that there are plenty of comfy couches and seats throughout the building so you can hang with your fellow travelers or find a cozy corner somewhere. There’s also more than enough individual shower and bathroom units on each floor for your convenience and privacy.

Located in the heart of Queenstown but away from the hustle and bustle of the plentiful bars and restaurants, you wont find a better spot.

We offer all of our guests the following services free of charge: WiFi, Apple TV, Netflix, Breakfast, including tea, milk and coffee, nightly soup, free luggage storage, local maps, free car parking.

We will also loan you a number of things where possible: hairdryers, hair straighteners, travel adapters, DVDs, books, travel guides.

    Really great hostel. My friend and I only stayed one night, but was very clean, the beds were super comfy and the place had a great feel.

    This is the best hostel I have ever stayed at. The staff go above and beyond, in addition to being super friendly and helpful. The cleanliness was 10/10. We tried extending our stay here multiple times because it was such a wonderful, clean, friendly space with an amazing location AND parking. We rented the bikes and enjoyed the complimentary waffles. I would always recommend friends to stay here if visiting Queenstown! Thanks for hosting us, it was superb!

    Loved this hostel! The staff were so warm and friendly and the hostel was very clean. They offered free waffles for breakfast and free soup for dinner which was very handy and just a really nice touch. The communal areas were also great - lounges, tv with Netflix, balcony and a big kitchen! It was also right on the edge of the city, a 2 minute walk to the middle of town. Would HIGHLY recommend this hostel!!

    We absolutely loved our stay here! The double pod we stayed in was tremendously comfortable and provided plenty of privacy for a very reasonable cost. The kitchen was great—lots of space for many people to prepare meals simultaneously. Soup for dinner & waffles for breakfast were a lovely bonus!!

    Our stay at Sir Cedric's was AMAZING! The pods give you a chance to have your own space and truly feel at home. We had our own toilet in our room which was great and the most amazing view of the mountains right outside our window. Despite living with six people, the bedroom and bathroom was always clean and the staff was super friendly. The free breakfast was perfect to get your day going! No complaints, I would go back again any time!

    Great hostel, very clean, friendly staff, excellent location. Great breakfast and soup included for dinner. The doors didn't always lock automatically to the rooms, so even though it seemed like a really safe location, that was the only real area for concern. Pod beds were very cozy and secluded, which has the usual advantages and drawbacks. All in all, would definitely stay here again!
