Great Hostel
It is quite clear this hostel has been recently refurbished. The carpets in the dorms were thick and soft, the mattresses were comfy and it has a large kitchen with great views over looking the lake. It is in a quiet neighbourhood about a 10minute walk along the lake to the centre of Queenstown. It has several off street parking spaces but even if these are full there is free parking on the road with no time limit. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Fair2.0 / 5
The most expensive & worst hostel experience in NZ
Terrible. Don't take any rooms on 3rd floor. You might as well sleep in the local Gymnasium while there is a netball match going on around you. See other reviews! Tried to move beds for less noise - someone else's rubbish left under the bed.

Amazing place!
Amazing backpackers hostel! I just booked this hostel because the lake view, the pictures of the building in general on the website was very simple and old but when I got there I just got a plus! They've renovated everything! Very modern and new hostel! The facilities in the kitchen are the best I ever saw! The staff are amazing! Really friendly and helpful all the time! The lake is amazing! Really recommend this place!
