Positive Reviews

Convenient location

This hostel is centrally located in Queenstown, allowing guests to explore the surroundings mostly on foot. With Skyline Queenstown less than 15 minutes away on foot, guests are able to get to attractions quickly and easily. There are also a range of restaurants that are within close walking distance.

Friendly staff members

The friendliness of the staff at this hostel makes guests glad to have chosen this accommodation, as a warm and inviting service makes all the difference. Guests are able to ask any of the staff members for assistance whenever they need it.

Comfortable beds on offer

There are plenty of compliments from guests who thoroughly enjoy the comfort levels of the beds on offer. The fine quality mattresses provide a comfortable night’s rest without fail, and add to an overall pleasant stay.

Negative Reviews

Quite noisy at times

Guests find this hostel quite noisy. The noise levels greatly depend on other guests and how much noise they make, as well as the noisy surroundings. Guests struggle to sleep peacefully in this environment.

Small bathrooms

The bathrooms are not as big as guests hope for, which makes them difficult to use. The shower cubicles are cramped, with little space to put belongings during showering.

No parking

While guests appreciate this hostel’s location for its beauty and convenience to popular attractions, the lack of on-site parking forces guests to use street parking. Finding parking on the street can be difficult during most parts of the day.
