George is an absolute gem and so so helpful! The atmosphere is also super wonderful with all of the folks coming in to adventure in Queenstown! Everyone is super excited and super nice! I also loved that there were plugs next to each bed and a little curtain to close off the rest of the room. Very nice touch.

terribly rude staff. They cut off water in the middle of a shower and it took a while for it to turn back on. The locker under my bed was broken and they told me to "deal with it." I was in a full room with all the lockers being used. I would never stay there again nor would I reccomend it to anyone else.
