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.

the first night I stayed in a dorm on the first floor immediately above loco bar and was kept up until 4am by the loud music. I could literally feel the vibrations through my (flat) pillow. After that the amazing girl at reception moved me to a 6 bed ensuite on the third floor where I slept like a baby for my remaining three nights. The kitchen was a good size, clean and tidy. Free wifi on the ground floor 7am - 7pm
