Excellent4.0 / 5
Stay wherever, but queenstown is worth it
We were in a private ensuite (bathroom not shared in the hallway, rather in the room) at the end of the hallway, so disregard most of this if you're a backpacker. The room was nice with a king-sized bed, but the mattress was made of abutting twins. The room doors down the hallway shut rather loudly, so that might keep you up at night. On the same note, there's a dance club in the building next door, so depending on which side of the hallway you're on, that might keep you up... or you could just GO to the club and enjoy it yourself. Location is perfect for ALL Queenstown summer activities as you can either walk or catch a shuttle to wherever you're going. No comment on winter, though I'd imagine it's the same. They have a huge locker to leave your stuff in if you're checking in early/out late. The staff was all nice. There's a key deposit, but if you're a hosteler you already knew that. Enjoy Queenstown, it's awesome.

Excellent4.0 / 5
Great location, excellent staff
Understanding that this facility caters to kids traveling low budget and we're 3x older than the average guest, it was exactly as expected - clean, shared baths and central location. Staff were all excellent - scrambled to find us a free private room when our reservation was apparently deleted by a disgruntled former employee. Only negatives - hot water was either too hot or cold and it was noisy outside all night.
