Ka Ying Lam thinks…

"We lived in a double room and share kitchen and bathroom with another room only. It is the shared bathroom is not with a number of people."

Matthew Monty

15 April 2010 Matthew would recommend this property

Liked: Was cheaper than other hostels in the area.. but not really worth the saving of a few dollars. Needs a better heater in the tv room its cold and u cant really use that room because of that. Showers and toilets are pretty messy but everything works and quite a lot of space. Common rooms and kitchens are quite large and good. Biggest problem was they allowed a 60+ year old man into the hostel. You dont get a good feeling of security in this hostel. He snored loudly too :S Location is a real nuisance on cold nights.

Liked: Really liked the cabin system, it's basicly a lot of small hostels in one. Points to improve: - pool table is broken (balls missing, pool cues broken)- kitchen a bit small for 12 people and also not enough glassesFor the rest: great fun!

Liked: Great value and within easy walking distance of Queenstown centre. Communal areas were a little dated and not too clean, but what do you expect for the cost?

Customer review

14 March 2010

Liked: The hostel itself is fine. We stayed in a unit with 4 privat rooms with our own kitchen and living room. Only 1 shower with toilet for 8 people, which is a little bit less when everything is fully booked. Especially because you can't go to the toilet if someone is taking a shower. Location of the hostel is about a 10 minute walk to the city centre, close to the gondola which has an amazing view. The worst thing about the hostel: it is COLD. We were freezing because of the worse isolation in our unit. There was no working heather in our living room, only one small heather in our bedroom. So yeah, it was really cold.After all it's a fine hostel for a few nights if you don't like the busy hostels in the city like Base and Nomads.

Liked: This was without doubt the BEST stay that we had in the 2.5 months we stayed in New Zealand. The property was excellent. Furnishings, ambiance,cleanliness, position, value for money etc. could not be faulted. The owners were of immense help, advising us of places to visit and information on the surrounding countryside. Could not have been more helpful and I can thoroughly recommend this place.
