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.

Liked: We had a private ensuite room for 2 weeks, it was amazing value and having a private room means you're on the 3rd floor and away from the hustle and bustle. It also meant we had a shared balcony with the room next door, a fridge, kettle, tv and our own bathroom. Basically the same standard as a hotel room for a fraction of the cost and with all the perks of being in a hostel, ie meeting other young people, common areas and deals on activities. It's right in the middle of town, we were there to snowboard and getting to any of the mountains from here is super easy by bus or there is a carpark downstairs if u rent one. Definitely recommend!

Disliked: Really loud announcements over the PA, constantly. Staff need to stop doing this, it's super annoying if you're trying to sleep!
