    Like everywhere else that we stayed in New Zealand, the problem I have with this hostel is the price. It is easy to find with a good central location, a mere five minute walk from both Intercity stops as well as numerous bars and restaurants,...More

    Bumbles is nice because it's away from the busy city, but still an easy five minute walk to get there. Very clean and staff were very friendly when I needed to figure out travel plans, and also to find alternative transportation when mine fell through

    Stayed here in a twin room - it was a bunk bed. Lovely view of the Remarkables and the lake. Very good radiator! (a rare find at times). Service was very friendly and rooms was nice and clean. Well located to the centre of Queenstown.
