Good location to access central Queenstown. Nightmare parking as car park is extremely small and street parking is either pay and display or permit. Room basic but fair given price but shared kitchen was nothing less than disgusting. One night was enough
Great vibe, loud party at night
Great location, very affordable. Good staff.”
Friendly staff, great location. Good prices. Near downtown for ski bus, supermarket, Fergburger. Free soup every night after 6pm, great for budget travellers. Private rooms are excellent value compared to hotels. Washers and dryers onsite too.
Overall it was a comfortable experience. I stayed in a double room. Only downside was that the shower temperature was not adjustable/or either too long delay time (over 3 mins). You can see featured paintings/cartoons on the walls.
Not the first time I've stayed here but this time was great. There were 3 of us and we were given the house next to main building which had two bedrooms, lounge, kitchen and bathroom. It is basically in the middle of town. Couldn't have asked for better. Will always stay here, best value in Queenstown for anyone on a budget.
Was okay for the one night”
We booked double bed room. The room light doesn't turn on. Good thing, the head lamp is. TV has only one channel working. The room #4 location is not pretty good at night because outside our window are the swings where people smoke. So got to close the windows at night. The 2 shower rooms and toilets are always available during our use. I'm fine with them. The kitchen area, was also okay. I just couldn't find a place where I can put our free food. So I just wrote "free" with pen the plastic and put it inside the ref. The reception is well-mannered and friendly. The location is very good. Just a few mins walk to the shops and restaurants nearby.
Loved the home-like feel of the hostel! I stayed in a four-bed dorm and it had a private toilet, shower and kitchen shared with just one other room. Staff was super-friendly and helpful and the free soup in the evenings was a nice touch (also tasty!). I'd definitely recommend this place. Only minus was that during four days, no one emptied the rubbish bin in our room (and it was full).
Easy, cheap and great location ”
The place was awesome for the price, very out dated though and could do with a bit of a tidy up. The bed however was extremely uncomfortable and when I was packing up my room I noticed a big blood stain under the mattress covered with some paper towel.. Other guests were also very noisy at all hours of the night but to be expected when staying in shared accommodation. Overall though my experience was ok and would recommend for a very cheap alternative.
We were in a private double room just outside and in via a different entrance - like a Separate house. This was awesome but the other couple on the house were extremely noisy so my only gripe is not with the hostel but the other who stay there with no consideration for others! Which you will always get in a hostel!
Just nice ”
overall is good but the bad thing is i really struggle for the parking.. 😆😆...by the way, the location is very strategic...
Good location, ok staff, not clean at all”
Bed is comfy, room is smallish. Kitchen lacks utensils, bathrooms are not cleaned very regularly. Location is excellent, parking available is a great asset. They don’t clean rooms at all, found a mountain of crumbs and an empty bottle of alcohol beneath our bed.
I am satisfied with room and toilet. But the Wi-Fi connection sucks. ”
Wi-Fi connection was so slow, that I couldn’t even use WhatsApp to send message
quite a good choice (location wise)”
the only negative point is the room is quite small but the facilities is almost perfect.they have everything you might need..walkinh distance to gondola station and the night life is quite enjoyable
Simple hostel with good kitchen facilities”
Simple hotel located uphill. About 5mins walk to base Queenstown. They have washing machine, dryer and a little spa pool. Good kitchen facilities if you want to cook.
Value for money”
Situated uphill. A few mins walk to the base. There's a shared kitchen.
just a few meters to the centre...
Great location! Easily access to everywhere.
clean good nice
Everything was good, except the network.”
within walking distance to queenstown public transport hub, gondola, supermarket and etc.
Satisfied with the accommodation ”
The accommodation provide all basic need. The location is walk in distance with town.
All you need ”
Nothing to complain about, awesome value for your money.
Quite a nice place. The staff are really helpful.
The staff is kind and the kitchens are good. The free soup is delicious! The WiFi isnt too great, but at least it's free. The bathrooms were small and cold, which was mildly irksome.
Only plus point which is near to shops and eateries. Unfortunately, the place is too noisy till early hours like 2am, the thin walls didn't help. inconsiderate customers. totally regreted staying in this place.
we had a twin room, and for what we paid for, the facilities were great, we got privacy, and it was an overall great stay. The free Wifi was also good, and the other people staying there were fairly nice. Fairly close to everything in Queenstown, and easy to get to from the buses. Would definitely recommend.
Friendly hostel with good beds. We stayed one night and it did what we needed it to do. We had a private twin (separate from the dorm house). It was quiet and clean so we could get a good night's rest.
Great place to meet people. Very central 5 min walk from grocery shop and 5 min walk from any bar in town and even shorter to the gondola. Staff took my food from the fridge because the name tag came off, but they refunded me for the food for taking it without warning.
3 night stay in snow season”
I have stayed here several times and it's always been a decent hostel. My one complaint this time was the room next door was partying until very early. Whilst I understand it's Queenstown, this is knackering when you're up very early to snowboard. Otherwise, free soup, rooms were clean and staff were friendly. A shame we booked a group but were in completely different areas of the hostel which was annoying.
Good value for money”
I went to Queenstown to snowboard for a week with a friend ant this place was ideal for our purposes. 3 mins walk to the buses for Cardrona and the Remarkables; 5 mins walk to all restaurants and bars.
Friendly & full of character”
Great staff, friendly atmosphere, colorful charming place. A little dated but clean & comfortable with everything you need. Only one shower & toilet in the block I was in but I never ended up waiting, & there are obviously more around the complex. Great shared facilities & extras (like free soup & popcorn, spa, parking etc).
Nice backpacker place”
The location of this backpacker hostel is quite good. while it is not situated in the center of queenstown, it is near the gondola and also a 5-10 mins walk from the town center. There's also free soup in the evening.
Value for money stay”
Rooms and toilets were clean and the place is located very near to the main street of the town (less than 5 minutes of walking distance). The toilet and kitchenette were right outside our room so there was no need for us to brave the cold to get to the toilets. Free spa and free soup available too. Overall a great value for money deal to stay in Queenstown.
Friendly & full of character”
Cheap & cheerful. Great relaxed, friendly atmosphere. Basic but has everything you need, including a spa, & there's free soup in the kitchens (winter)! Stayed in a double room which was basic (bed, table, heater, rubbish bin) but cosy. Best value in town in my opinion.
Generally good, but have bad moments during stay”
Generally good; but I met a group of party goer, they hold party in the dorm, drink,play music and talk aloud in room 26 untill midnight or even later, I can't remember that, I felt angry and terrible with that. That can really prevent me from choosing this backpacker if I go to Queenstown again. You should hang this kind of signs in the dorm to ask them to be more considerate to others.
Good backpackers stay”
stayed one night, and let us store our luggage for another three - no strings attached. provided only limited wifi data usage, then by top up to external service. we slept well, happy that the next door bunkroom went out for drinks. great location for the gondola and easy walking distance to city cente or larger supermarket for shopping.
nice,quaint hotel with friendly staff.”
A budget backpackers hotel that is very near town center , skyline gondola and kiwi zoo.The amenities is quite good,there is cooking facility,laundry, and general lounge for tv and computer. Recommendations for sight seeing with a lot of phamplets for enquiries at the front desk.It is a backpackers lodging therefore no frills, very basic.
The room was not very well maintained and placed in a major thoroughfare. There also seemed to be a pump directly outside the window that continuously activated throughout the night. Finally, the pipes to the communal kitchen upstairs were also poorly maintained and squeeled when people used them. Overall a poor stay.
Cheap hostel with thin walls”
We stayed here for a night, as we had to catch an early bus. The location was good. Staffs were nice and let us check in early to leave our suitcases. Well, basically these were the only good things. The room was very small and basic, and the shower was tiny (nowhere to put your soap or toiletries). People were noisy... stepping around until 4 am. My suggestion is, if you are light sleeper and can afford to stay somewhere nicer, do it.
Good location, but that's it ”
It was very dated. I felt like it wasn't that clean and the girl at the front desk when we checked in felt like she really didn't want to be there. Only good thing was that it was very close to town.
Pretty good for the price”
Overall a decent place to stay. A little old/run down in places, but good enough for a short stay at least.
in the middle of town”
the location is good, but the room is small.
great place, walking distance to the gondola ride.
staff were great! free soup every evening:)
Good value friendly place ”
All good it is what it is
We stayed in a double room. The room is at another isolated house beside the reception. So the room is quiet. However, the room has no WIFI. The WIFI at the public are is not good too. One plus point is they provide free soup everyday and free parking for us which is great.
Great for Solo & Group Travelers. ”
You could book a 4 bed dorm or 6 bed dorm together and get the whole room to yourself that comes with your very own private kitchenette. Good privacy, space and comfort. Great Hot Tub & Laundry. But pretty bad wifi coverage and speed at night.
Location is handy with a few minutes distance to heart of Queenstown where you can enjoy with everything. Room is only shared common areas such as bathroom, toilet, kitchen with two people. It is pretty good but quite old and smelly though.
the real asset of this place is the staff. very friendly and accomodating. facilities are ok and could do with some improvements. Didnt particularly liked the heater as it gets too hot if left for a long time. You cant turn it off for long either as the room gets cold.so u end up waking up in the middle of the night to turn it on and off. otherwise they keep the facilities clean. very handy location too,
Poor Building Design (normally happen in Queenstown)”
The lodge is built by wooden partition/floor. When you accommodate right below the kitchen. You will feel and hear the stepping noise and vibration. When people outside talk aloud, you can also hear it. Unless you are insensitive to it, it is annoying and it will jeopardize your rest. Even though the kitchen is said to be close around 22:30, no one will care since the lodge reception will be away around 20:00. Therefore, it is poor for you. Since we have same experience in other lodge and we arrive earlier, we have made the request for keeping away from the kitchen. However, people are still having their party after 22:30.
Room 24 far too small for 3.”
My first stay in 3 bed mix dorm (in I think Rm 11) was satisfactory with plenty of room for people and luggage. My next stay on March 20 was totally unsatisfactory in Rm 24 as it was only big enough for 1 bunk just! And they had greedily squeezed in another bed leaving no room for luggage let alone 3 persons which I also feel this situation would be against OHnS. Certainly not worth $30 and would not recommend it unless it was the last room in town. Especially if its used as a mixed room with people unknown to each other. I think the Queenstown counsel needs to go through some of these backpacker accommodation and check if their space to bed ratio is legal. I would try another room in the lodge as it was very clean and orderly.
The worst acomodation”
when i arrived backpackers , i can't find my room. So i wanderd from place to place for 20min. At first, room condition is very bad. Bad smell, although weather is very cold, there isn't any heater.. Also it didn't work hot water in showeroom. But Staff was kind, so we could receive payback.
Small room... ”
The room is very small for two persons... if you willingly to fork out 20-30 dollar more,you can easily get a much bigger place/comfortable bed. however the location is awesome, only 5minutes you can get to the famous fergburger in town! also, it has some free parking, nice!
Great location but small room btw beds”
The kitchen is built inside my rooms, the cooking smell was there for the whole night. But not all rooms are like that. Great location, near to Gondola and city center. A good place to stay but not the best.
Great location but small rooms”
They offered me a 3 bed female share room. The kitchen and washroom are just outside, which are shared by two rooms,it's clean. The matress in my room is too soft, and it's very noisy at night where we can hear ppl talking outside our windows.
Decent location for a night or two”
stayed one night only so can only comment that it was worth what you pay, though the room is small and can be quite warm in the summer heat (esp with 2). bathrooms/shower also small (read: only have space to get in and out)
Great hostel with friendly receptionist”
located near the skyline gondola, this place is such a steal! for the price you are paying, you get good beds and good facilities. i stayed in a double room with shared bathrooms. the bathrooms are just outside the rooms. you get free vege soup every night and the receptionists are always helpful. the only problem is that you have to pay for internet. we paid $ for 24 hours of internet.
A little disappointed”
The room did not reflect as the picture. Was quite disappointed.
Have to pay for wifi
The reception is very friendly. The hostel is not far from the centre but in a quiet zone which is perfect for me.
Small rooms and not so good facilities”
The rooms were very small and very narrow common space. The toilet and shower rooms were too small also. There were few common cutlerries and cups in the kitchen.
If you’re okay with being in close proximity to your friends then totally stay here. Facilities were great and clean, room was a tad unclean but very very small.
It's very nice”
The motel prepare a honey room for us,and it's big and special,we loved it!
Very central to town, friendly staff, got everything you might need. Would stay here again
Good atmosphere Kind people Facilities without discomfort ^-^
Great people, enjoyed location, friendly staff”
Needs better wifi
Clean and good location
it's good place to stay. It organized and closed to main street. But it need to be cleaned and clear more. Other things are perfect here.
Town center and Gondola are in walking distances. There are free self made pop corn at reception too. Great experiences and stay.
Disappointed in Room 24a”
First room I had was 11 I think, it was a 3 bed shared dorm with kitchenette and
