    Got given an ensuite room which was cool as I didn't pay for it! Three kitchens which was pretty useful and the reception staff were all friendly. Only annoying thing was the balcony would be locked at 8pm. Met some cool people here!

    Nice kitchen, friendly and helpful staff, ok beds. Not a party hostel! It was exactly what I was looking for!! Cozy hostel but not very social when I was there (maybe a matter of lucky or maybe due to most people were doing hikings and were a bit tired at the end of the day). But definitely a great choice in Queenstaown (I also stayed in nomads and it was horrible)

    Place is pretty well kept, staff are friendly and facilities are good. Bikes and frisbees available for free, however the bikes could do with a bit of a service; they're not unrideable but the brakes are a bit dangerous and you have to be careful with them.
