Amazing stay

This is a great place to stay while visiting Queenstown, this was my first solo trip and obviously I’ve heard some weird stuff about hostels, I was hoping to stay at some weird crazy place but it was actually more than what I expected! Cool installations, nice and respectful people while I stayed there, the only thing I would’ve loved is the staff promoting more group parties, it was kinda dead, not really a hostel to make friends I would say, it’s close to everything so car is not needed unless you want to do activities that require driving. Overall a great experience.

It was very unique & had everything we wanted! Just disappointing that we were overbooked by expedia & the hostel wasn’t good at accommodating us with the situation we were in.

Great place in great location

This was one of my favorite backpakers in New Zealand. Trendy place in great location close to restaurants. There were 3 of us and we got our own clean 3 bedroom. Unfortunately we didn’t have time to use it but computer/lounge area looked so comfy after a long day touring town.

Right on the button !

Friendly backpacker right next to the park, gardens and just a couple of minutes walk from the town centre. Hard to beat the location.
