Surely this is the best hostel in Queenstown.

Bathrooms would benefit from updating.

This is a really good hostel. So much better than the Discovery Lodge where is also stayed in Queenstown. It has everything you would expect from a YHA and is in a great location right by the lake, but only ten minutes' walk from the town centre.

Good by YHA standards

Most Yhas are similar, big, impersonal and regimental. I was therefore pleasantly surprised with this hostel, being the opposite to most of these things. Its not too big to be impersonal, its hardly regimental in that the dorms were mixed sex - a rariety for the YHA - and the atmosphere was pretty laid back. There was also no curfew. Only downside ; its a bit of a hike to the centre of Queenstown, but if you're in town for some tramping, thats not a bad thing.
