The location is the best in the town with incredible views of the lake from their brand new, and well equipped kitchen. Rooms and bathrooms are all new as well and incredibly clean. It has one of the best social atmospheres I have...

I had been traveling for over a year and stayed in many hostels, Absoloot is hands down the best hostel there is, bar none. Friendly staff, immaculate rooms, and a beautiful view of the lake from the kitchen.....who doesn't want to eat breakfast to that!?!

After 3 years travelling this is the best hostel I've stayed in. Friendly staff, clean kitchen\ clean rooms \ bathrooms, lively atmosphere and perfect location. The highlights of my stay were the views of the lake and mountain ranges from the kitchen and how easy it was to socialise with other travellers in the atmosphere of the hostel.

I'm not really a hostel person however with little choice I opted for this place based on their reviews.... A great little spot I must say - very friendly and professional staff, clean and tidy rooms with comfortable and clean beds and a clean bathroom. Great location - good for people on a budget or with limited time....I wouldn't hesitate...

During my time in NZ I have had the chance to stay at a over a dozen hostels including three in Queenstown and would have to say that AVA is by far the best. The kitchen is definitely one of the highlights of AVA, it is clean, spacious, has two ovens, and has probably one of the best views of...
