Lock your door!

Too big

We'd got used to the casual NZ lifestyle, and left our room unlocked while we were inside. At about 5.00am, a prowler wandered into our room, having smashed the outside lightbulb to slow down any barefoot pursuers. He left when we questioned him, but we resumed locking our bedroom door after that.

Stayed in a double room and it came with free towels and TV, room was also nice and clean. The hostel is located between Queenstown centre and the gondola, about 5min to either location, and is far enough from the centre to provide some nice and quiet evenings. They provide free soups every evening and also a free spa which is great! Kitchen is well equipped and has everything you need. Plus for all the comic strips that are found all over the walls, brightens your day!

My bf and I stayed in a double room here for 2 nights. (But unlike the 2 other reviews our room didn't have a TV.) The staff was really helpful and friendly, free soup was nice. The kitchens and bathrooms where clean and tidy. Best thing about the hostel was it's right close to the base of the luge/gondola, and not a very far walk into the center. (I think that the YHA is way out on the side of Queenstown.) another nice thing was the linen in our room was so soft and fluffy :) and we slept really well. Over all I would recommend this hostel.

LOVELY PLACE - WOULD GO BACK

Chilled vibe. Pink walls with quotes scrawled over them. Attentive staff. Friendly atmosphere and good communal areas. A slice of peace in Queenstown. Outdoor swings. Good laundry. Excellent location - near to both central areas and the base of "the luge". TV in our double room. Would definately stay again.

Friendly staff greeted me. A lovely double room with a TV in it awaited. It was central but not in a noisy area. Good communal facilities include spa, laundry and nice lounge and kitchen areas including a little balcony. Lots of leaflets around on local attractions. Clean toilet and shower. Cheery bright decor. Cannot complain at all. Top.

you can't get better than bazza, jenna and rachel, believe me! they made our stay fab, book all the local tours and the hostel is clean, tidy, and had really above average facilities! the best thing is the 2 min walk to town, perfect for those queenstown nights out that are rather drunken!!!!
