About this area

Queenstown

Located in Queenstown, Base Queenstown - Hostel is in the city centre and near the beach. Shotover Jet and Coronet Peak Ski Area are worth checking out if an activity is on the agenda, while those wishing to experience the area's natural beauty can explore Lake Wakatipu and Queenstown Gardens. Skyline Gondola and Kiwi and Birdlife Park are also worth visiting. Our guests appreciate the hostel's location for the sightseeing.
