I'm from Germany and I stayed 5 nights here. It was one of the best hostels I've been to! It's totally relaxed and you can find peace and quiet when you need it. The beds are very good and the kitchen has always been very clean. The bathrooms are large and also very clean. The staff are an absolute 10/10 totally lovely and very helpful. Next time I am in Queenstown I will come back here!!!

I was quite disappointed in the overall shabbiness of the hostel, but the main issue was the lack of bathrooms. There just aren't enough for the number of people staying there. They also are never clean (likewise for the kitchens), and missing small conveniences like hooks for towels and shelves for toiletries. The wifi didn't work in our cabin room, and there was insufficient parking as well. Location is good and convenient, but that's about the only plus. I really did want to like it, but I would look for somewhere else if I go back to Queenstown.
