The people at the front desk were very helpful during a stay. Rooms were very clean and bathrooms were also nice. It’s very near the skyline and not too far from other locations. Would definitely recommended this place.

Flaming Kiwi was a good find. I’ve stayed many places in Queenstown and am glad to have found this one. We had a private sleepout cabin with bunks. It was just opposite the door to the lower lounge and kitchen with toilets and showers handy....More

Best hostel I have seen in new zealand. Welcoming and reasonable. Clean and convienent. Fun people to talk too. I was in NZ backpacking and it was perfect for meeting people, cooking my own food, and doing activities around QT.
