Liked: I met some amazing people at the hostel, and the facilities were always kept clean.

Disliked: The wifi was the biggest issue here, intimitantly cutting out, but the hostel workers were willing to help get in touch with Global Chat (wifi company) I much prefer previous hostel wifi setup's where it's not handled externally.

Liked: The facilities are excellent and the staff go out of their way to make sure you have a good stay! The movie room is great and there are always things happening. This is the first time I have travelled by myself and nomads was my first stop in Queenstown and I had the most amazing time and can't recommend it highly enough.

Disliked: Playing pool should be free

Liked: The people at the reception were very friendly and helpful, the showers, toilets and rooms were clean, comfortable beds, and the atmosphere was fresh and nice.

Disliked: It was loud during the night, because of the people partying on the streets. But i think one shouldnt expect anything else from Queenstown. The only thing i really did dislike was the fact, that it was cold in my room.

Liked: Verry nice place, stayed in a lot of Nomads around the world and this one is definitely on of the best! Large living room, sauna, cinema, and lots of staff for helping you at any time!!! Commun area doesnt close during the night (just the kitchen) and we can find a big fireplace !! The free meal every nights is top, best time for making new friends!!!! And for finish, there is a lots of deals for cheap food and drinks in the city!

Disliked: One of the only hostel without free wifi, and I think for being one of the most expensive hostel in Queenstown, the wifi could be including. No long term room, because its a busy hostel, but don't understand the reason for refuse customers to stay for a long time if we pay every week!? I think if its a diffent customer or the same one in the room, don't change the bill. I would love to stay there more time there!

Liked: Very professional and clean, nice facilities and a very nice location close to everything. Staff is very nice and helpful, sparks conversation and makes you feel welcome.

Disliked: A bit too professional maybe, not a lot of openness or familiarity. Kitchen is quite small and for the free "meal" you almost have to queue 30 minutes in advance. Kiwi Experience travellers stay here, so if you're not going out, you're not getting any sleep either.

Liked: The place was always clean, the rooms are an ok size, the staff (all backpackers themself) are super happy, they have a ton of activities (its Queenstown after all) and hand out flyers for free or reduced drinks at night.

Disliked: Theres a TON of people in this Hostel, the kitchen and the bathrooms are far too small and you always end up waiting to do anything and everything. On top of that, did one of the staff break a pipe when he was drunk so we got kicked out at 5am by the fire alarm and some of the rooms got flooded. Their stuff was ruined. The place reaked of mold (so did my room 106) for days until I finally left.
