“Nice hostel, MANIAC owner”
Reviewed 23 September 2008

I stayed in this house for 2 nights. The conditions were reasonable for the price I paid (very small kitchen, few bathrooms, confortable bed).

But I definitely CANNOT recommend it. The owner is a complete MANIAC. He thinks he is doing the guests a favour for letting them stay there. Always walking around to see if you do anything wrong (he has the house full of rules and instructions for the guests, can you believe that, they are everywhere). And yeah, don't interrupt his dinner or his tv shows.. that is definitley a no-no.

Reviewed 16 June 2007

This is a fabulous hostel in Queenstown. A short walk from the town, a little uphill and with absolute fantastic views. The host is knowledgable about activities, friendly and the hostel is very clean. Only pitty is that you can only book for a minimum of 3 nights and we initially wanted to stay only 2 but after we saw the view we were converted...
One of our top stays in NZ
