          Stunning views, friendly and helpful staff, clean and tidy. Would definitely stay again next time I am in Queenstown. Usually visit Queenstown in a mix of hotels, motels and backpackers and this is very comfortable!

          Book well in advance, it's a popular place and Queenstown has an acute shortage of budget accommodation. The dorms with private rooms attached unfortunately only have 1 bathroom for 10 people, so you need to be strategic about your showering time.
