I think as long as we look back on our three day Queenstown we will always hold the lakefront YHA close to our hearts. We loved it while we were in the hostel (we spent most of our time in Queenstown packing in activities and the like).
The room and bathroom facilities couldn't be faulted. The laundry and kitchen services were top notch, and I always like to see a place have good recycling policies and this YHA (and its Franz Josef counterpart) had plenty of recycling bins/containers.
Perhaps the biggest star of this hostel is the staff. They are so helpful! From the cleaners to reception staff the management should really be proud of the team they have here. Jordan, Hollie and in particular the German girl (whose name we did not get, but if the management are reading this please thank her) helped us with queries we had. Even if they did not know the answer they strived to help us. I've stayed in many hostels (the ones I've stayed in while visiting NZ have been of a high standard in fairness) and the staff here really could've shown some of the hostels I stayed in a couple of years ago a thing or two.
Try out the massage chairs!
