Impressed, new hostel and seem to have considered what people want. Big lockers for whole bags which are great, big kitchen and lounge area. Free computers! Lots of effort being put in for hostel activities! Good location in centre. Staff also very helpful arranging airport transfer. Only slight things are sounds travels very easily around whole building, can disturb at night, and bathroom ran out of soap in evenings. Would recommend as clearly have good plans and intentions!

Social hostel, visited just before ski season so lots of people excited for that! Lots of people going out but quiet after 10pm Pos - great location and view, rooms spacious, beds comfy. Reception staff very helpful. security lockers in cupboard on each floor, bring your own lock. Great atmosphere Neg - kitchen small, was cramped now so could be horrendous in summer, sometimes bit messy. bathrooms could be cleaned more often as in mornings bins overflowing and one toilet kept breaking.

Hi there, thank you for your review. We're very glad you enjoyed your time with us and it's great to hear you liked our rooms. We're sorry if you felt like our kitchen was too small. It has been renovated to accommodate more people, but it can get busy during peak times. The kitchen is cleaned 3 times daily, and our bathrooms are cleaned on a daily basis. However, not everyone in the hostel is respectful and sometimes people will leave a mess. We do encourage any issues to be reported though so we can rectify them. We hope you had a fantastic time in Queenstown and on your travels in NZ.

Loved it here, very chilled hostel, staff very friendly and helpful with helping find a group to do Roy's Peak! Very clean bathroom and kitchen, rooms recently painted and lockers in bedroom. WiFi 500mb free, can buy 3gb for $5 and there's a free computer. Located a bit out centre but literally takes 5/10mins so not far!! Would definitely recommend for outdoor people/snowboarders!

Stayed in 4 bed deluxe dorm,spacious and own bathroom which was kept very clean each day, free tea and coffee. Great kitchens and laundry and bar. Have hot tubs as well. Location great but fj is small! Wi-Fi can't really get in rooms only reception but free, rooms can get quite stuffy and condensation on windows. Maybe need dehumidifier in rooms? Otherwise impressed would stay again definitely

Stayed here after getting the ferry to Picton, it was very nice! Very clean and decorated, has everything you would want facilities wise, good Wi-Fi, good kitchen and clean bathrooms! Very comfy beds. Staff are friendly, free breakfast too! Very impressed and would recommend! My only room for improvement would be maybe having security lockers, as the rooms are quite open and the front door isn't locked til late. They have a security camera 24/7 Otherwise so clean!! Definitely stay here!

Best hostel no have stayed in New Zealand by a mile! Quiet but think it was the time of year. Very clean, kitchens very well equipped (but bring own tea and coffee!) Great location, literally 5 mins to centre and waterfront, and there's a supermarket opposite so easy to get food. Staff very friendly and helpful, rooms well kept and have security lockers for passports etc. Also have range of films, games room and free internet. Honestly the only bad thing I can say is about the tea bags!

Nice relaxed hostel, very friendly staff who help with suggestions and booking! Kitchen very clean and well equipped. Rooms very spacious and not bunk beds! Great location, easily walkable to all the main parts. Could do with security lockers in rooms as only one safe by reception, and the bathrooms could do with refurbishing. Otherwise a nice place to stay.

Great location on Bay, view is lovely. Kitchen very clean and bathrooms clean too. Lockers under bunk beds, bring your own lock, fits whole backpacker rucksack. Free WiFi. Staff are friendly and helpful. Chilled atmosphere, quiet, not a party hostel but it was not peak season. The rooms are quite small however and the one I was in had no windows and not much ventilation, which was quite uncomfortable as it was a bit damp. The fan in there didn't really help much! Would def stay again though!

Absolutely fantastic, we stayed in three Wombats hostels and this one was by far the best! Everyone is really friendly and helpful, the bar provides a great way to meet new people and although it doesn't initially seem like it when you arrive the hostel is in a great location by the centre, and also nearby shops and the underground. The kitchen is well-equipped, and the lockers are secure. My only slight improvement would be to have a sink for handwashing laundry, but that's being really picky!
