    The water on bathroom has no pressure at all. In other hotels, the flow of water on shower is really good.

    Overall fine. The rooms got very hot at night. The location couldn’t really get much better. This YHA is particularly expensive. Never a plus for backpackers.

    I enjoyed my stay at YHA. It’s not my favourite hostel in Queenstown (fave is Absoloot), but the YHA is great. No complaints! It being a Hosteling International place it’s fairly similar to all other HIs.

    Great location and very helpful staff. Horrible ventilation - room was incredibly hot and couldn't cool it down. The shower pressure was dismal at best. Not the best YHA stay I've had.

    Worst experience I’ve had in NZ. There were construction works in the building next door going on all day and night and it sounded like it was right next to my bed. Not very clean as well. Great location and staff however.
