Liked: This was my favorite out of the hostels I stayed in in NZ. Very friendly staff and guests. I loved the location right on the lake with great views. The kitchen was pretty clean and I liked the computer/tv room a lot. This hostel felt fairly new and modern but had a lot more character than a Base or YHA.

Liked: Quiet, warm, comfortable hostel. 2 minute walk from the city centre so easy to get there by foot but far enough that it's not noisy at night. Spacious 6 bed dorm, clean kitchen and ensuite and cool tv area.

Disliked: Having to pay for internet access/wifi - but this seems pretty standard in NZ.

Liked: it was really clean and new. I also liked how it wasn't right in town but still definitely close enough to walk.

Disliked: there weren't any ovens in the kitchen and the heating wasn't very good.

Liked: The bedrooms and bathroom cleaned everyday! And thoroughly! The lounge and kitchen was also very clean and easily enough hobs for everyone to cook. The receptionists were also very friendly. The location had views of the lake which is difficult to find with many backpackers in queenstown!

Disliked: No free wifi. Same price as some other hostels and they have free breakfast or free wifi. Think maybe some events could have been created by the hostel to meet people.

Liked: Good location, helpful staff.

Disliked: WiFi must be FREE in 21 century!!!The toilet in our room was stinky so I had to close the door after each user. Some people had a noisy party all the night when the staff was not there and could not stop them from disturbing other travellers.

Liked: The room i had in the hostel had an amazing view of the lake, it was a lovely size room with good facilities. The staff couldn't of been more helpful or friendly and because it was 5 mins walk away from the town centre it was quite when you needed to sleep but close enough to walk to everything.

Disliked: The $2 charge for the lockers in the room every time you use them , it's the only factor that let's the property down. Having a box that you could padlock yourself would make such a big difference in security.
