Staff were awesome, I liked staying here and I would again. But just for future reference, you do have to hike up the hill of death to get to the hostel and the place itself is really cold (but that could also be a « me » issue lol. Still recommend.

Solid hostel very short walk to center of Queenstown and close to a lot of bars and restaurants. Beds were pretty comfy. Not super social when I stayed there but there were often people quietly hanging on the couches, so the hostel never felt lonely or anything like that.
