Great cheap accommodation in the middle of Queenstown. There is a very convenient section of the hotel where the staff act as agents organising activities for you. I booked bungy jumping, canyon swing, Nevis swing, jet boat rides, sky diving, Milford sound daytrip ... all through staff in the hotel. Also, they have group activities for people staying there every...

Overall its a great place to stay and is well catered for backpackers and especially young partygoers. There is free breakfast and the staff are welcoming and helpful. Also its in a good location walking distance from all the activity in Queenstown. As it is close to a bar it can get very noisy so if you need a quiet...

My food was proper labed (name, room number, check out date) and they took out the fridge with no reason. When I got it the next day it was rotten and I didn't get a refund or anything to compensate my lost for their fault. And also no hot water for a hole afternoon.

This hostel was great value - we had a private bathroom and everything is walking distance since it's right in the middle of town. They offer cheap dinners and bar specials each night and free WiFi during the day. The private room is large and the bathroom is clean. Would definitely stay here again.

...except the fact that alcohol is not allowed. My boyfriend and I stayed here on a Saturday night in an eight bed room dorm. All the kids dressed up and were out all night. It was kind of crazy to observe this behaviour but fascinating at the same time. It reminded me of 10 years ago when I was at...

Urgh where to start... The hostel has absolutely no positive vibe to it. It feels like a corporate business designed to pack as many people in as possible - it seems to hold roughly 300 people. The whole hostel is plastered with ads for various "experiences" in Queenstown, further nailing home the fact that you are constantly being directed to...

Queenstown was booked out almost (at least for budget travellers) so decided to stay with Nomads in the only room left a flashy deulxe room! Nomads comes across as quite a trendy place to stay, lots of backpackers and a fun vibe throughout the building. The deluxe room was alright, probably not worth hotel rates but when you think of...
