Good choice for Queenstown. The hostel is bright and sunny and very clean. Host is very nice and charismatic and gave us lots of good tips on what to do and where to eat in Queenstown. Unfortunately, the weather wasn't good during our 4 nights, but the host also had plenty of good advise for the wet days. Would recommend... More

Get to know the owner of Scallywags and you will never forget your stay here. The Guest House has personality and charm. I met a number of other travelers that became good friends. The property is about a ten minute walk to the heart of town. Its a quiet and relaxed setting with tremendous hospitality.

For start, the guest house located in a very confusing area, we called to ask for directions and answered rudely "you will manage by your own". When we finally arrived, the manager showed us the place - creepy rooms with teddybears for each bed, without any sheets. (if you want- you can buy dirty ones or clean ones..?!) When we... More
