          Hi there, Thanks for your recent feedback regarding your stay at Base Queenstown. You did comment on your room as cramped. With regards to the size of the room - the 8 bed dorms are actually not too bad in size, however when other guests don’t keep their areas tidy and use the under bed storage this can make others feel cramped. I am sorry that this was the case in your situation. You mentioned that the noise of other guests kept you awake during the night. We have a night manager that does regular floor checks during the night to reduce this noise; however he cannot be in two places at once. We apologise for the noise you encountered during your stay. I do hope that you do enjoy the remainder of your travels. Kind regards, J. Smith
