Liked: Good location, close to town and the lake is just in front. The room is decent given the price paid, the cheapest single room in town. The shared bath room during my stay was clean and tidy.

Disliked: Lack of signage which can be a bit hard to find the room when first checked in but then the hostel ain't that big.

Liked: The view, They weren't wrong about the view and location. Probably one of the best views in Queenstown that you don't have to pay a arm & a leg for

Disliked: The kitchen, bathroom & common area was completely filthy. The fridge in my section of backpackers was not working, forcing me to use fridge in main kitchen which was a health hazard. The whole kitchen was a health hazard. I brought this to the attention of management and they listened to me. However it shouldn't have been like that. They either need to get professional cleaning staff or give the backpackers tools to clean up after themselves
