It shows how opinions differ!
The Lab is a very homely hostel with a great crowd of longtermers who, unlike other clicky hostels, make you feel very welcome and instantly part of the group.
There's always a great craic, with people wanting to party every night but quieter places you can escape to with like-minded "chill out" types!
Yeah so it's not the cleanest hostel (think "messy" rather than "dirty"!) and there's no great swimming pool or over the top amenities but it is "budget accommodation" and there's bathrooms/kitchens which are cleaned daily.
The staff are amazing fun and do anything they can to help!
The location couldn't be more perfect for Queenstown (just on the outskirts of the main town centre and NOT up any crazy steep hills!) and the price is affordable.
