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.

    This is by far the best pod hostel I have stayed in so far. The entire hostel was clean and the staff were amazing and receptive to my needs. The kitchen had all of the fixings and the free breakfast was delicious. The value for money at this hostel is spot on, considering all that it provides its guests. I would highly recommend this hostel to anyone traveling to Queenstown.

    Best hostel we've stayed at in NZ by far, out of 10 hostels. It's very secure, the staff are friendly and helpful giving advice on what activities to do to where's the best place for brunch. The pods are also nice adding some privacy, and have a bedside surface and charging stations in each pod. Would stay again and would highly recommend!

    We had to move for one night to another room to stay together. It was a little bit annoying, but ok. Everything was cleaned, just the pans in the kitchen could already be renewed. The nights were a little bit cool, we had heater in the room, but some rooms mate turned them off at night. Breakfast in the morning is perfect! Would recommend staying here

    The hostel is very good for its price. In the morning we had free breakfast with filter coffee & waffles! You walk only 2min to the city centre & the supermarket is just around the corner. The beds are very wide and comfortable. Unfortunately it is very cold in the corridors, in the bathroom and in the common room in winter which makes the stay there rather unpleasant. The staff is very friendly and will gladly help you with booking activities. I would stay here again!

    Really good location. It was a decent place to stay that felt safe. One shared shower was clogged. Overall the location made up for everything
