    Wonderful, chill atmosphere with a more private feel than the big hostel chains. Awesome staff, bikes for borrow and a cozy bed to return to each night. Highly recommend.

    I had a short stay at The Flaming Kiwi, but very pleasant. Good location, free Wi-fi, cosy lounge and frendly guests. I loved the solid wooden bunk beds, noise free. I have to mention Andre's helpful and kind attitude. He is always willing to help and accommodate guests and their needs, a Hostel Manager like him represents without doubt an added value to the Hostel. I have no hesitation in recommending The Flaming Kiwi to all travellers.

    One of the bests in NZ! The dorm has its own bathroom within, the lockers are huge plus there are tiny lockers with outlets inside to put your devices (genious). The bunks are pretty solid wood-made so even if your bunkmate moves a lot you won't notice. It has a courtine which is awesome for privacy, its own night light and outlets by your bed. Maybe the only downside is that the parking lot is really (really) tiny, so is difficult to drive in. Overall awesome stay, I'd definetely stay again :D

    Good location, decent and clean kitchens and bathrooms. Very much liked the large under bed storage and curtains on the bunks in the dorm. We only stayed for one night, but a very friendly backpackers atmosphere if that is what you are looking for.

    This was one of my favorite hostels I stayed at in NZ! It is in a great location, just a few minutes walk to downtown Queenstown but far enough away to be quiet at night. I was in a mixed dorm and it had fairly large lockers for each bed, plus nice bunks with curtains and chargers. After 2 weeks of climbing in and out of rickety bunks, I appreciated how sturdy these bunks and ladders were!

    Plenty of kitchens and bathrooms (clean), nice beds, good location. WiFi was a bit annoying bc you had to log in every time you wanted to use it on your phone or laptop. Free parking was often full. Check in was by 4 pm. A note - lots of ppl were long term residents, giving it more of a university dorm vibe than a hostel of travelers.

    Reception opening times are a bit rubbish but at least you can get hold of the staff really easily. Also, nice idea about the free bikes but an available pump would be a good start.
