We stayed in an 8 bed dorm for 2 nights. Previous to this we had been travelling in a camper van and the manager let us use their vacuum and other cleaning products to help us clean up the van before we returned it. The room was nice, lots of floor space for backpacks and 2 kitchen and living areas....

The room we got was nice and clean and the bathroom was shared with one other unit. Common areas was comfortable but the kitchen was a bit small. Reception staff was friendly and welcoming. You can rent free dvd's from reception, they had a lot to choose from. Location was convenient, it's within easy walking distance to a good supermarket...

We stayed for two nights, one was in the double ensuite room (which was really small but clean), and the other in a regular double room, which was room 11, probably the best room in the building (spacious, a 2-way view, close to the new kitchen). The dorms building is a bit stifled and a lot of young backpackers come...

Something just did'nt click here. One night we spent here and that was all it took to make sure we didn't come back. The hostel has a strange set up where the room we stayed was the other side of the building and you had to walk all around it to get to the kitchen to which you had to...

Great place to stay and while not luxurious is of a good clean standard and very friendly. Choice of rooms and facilities and good location a short walk from the centre of Queenstown - everything you need for a well priced stay.

Close to the city centre, only a short walk up from the bus stop. Two kitchens and lounges, average sized but clean. Rooms were big with space for backpacks etc. Slightly annoying having to go outside and upstairs every time you want to go into the kitchen or lounge. Only real downside for us was the noise during the night,...

The location was fabulous. We could walk everywhere, but were far enough away from the nightlife to be able to sleep without a lot of noise outside. We were traveling with our adult children and stayed in a spot that had two doubles that shared a bathroom. The rooms were clean, but very basic- a bed, a nightstand and enough...
