The property's response is

Aw thanks :) Glad Bumbles was your New Zealand favourite! (we do have an oven - it's a free standing one on the counter in the small kitchen). Thanks for the review - it made us smile :)

Liked: The view is amazing from the hostel. Close proximity to all the activities in Queenstown, but far enough that you don't have to deal with loud bars or restaurants.

Disliked: Reception hours are a little short.

Liked: I stay one night at Base Hostel and one night at Bumbles. Bumbles staff remembers me by name and it doesn't have the feeling that it is a hostel catering to the masses. It is located near the main Queenstown centre but it is quiet enough for a relaxing time. The view of the lake from the hostel is awesome.
