Very good! Good beds, kitchen, location is exceptional in the heart of Queenstown. Staff is very friendly. There is just one issue, the wifi is really bad. Why not change to a better router? We were three sharing a 4 bed room with private toilet and bathroom. Good place with value for the money. Excellent!

I booked a twin room for 3 nights at Absoloot Value hostel for Dec 2016 many months in advance. By Queenstown standards, this was the least priced private room with ensuite bathroom, centrally located, that I could find. The location can't be beat, the staff is efficient and helpful. WiFi is free. There is an elevator. The room was well...

Chose this hostel after hearing someone say comment on the great value and environment. Did not regret my decision and decided to stay a second time after a few weeks. Rooms and en-suite toilets were clean and tidy - of course, this depends on your room mates as well. Really love the view of the lake and town from the...

Helpfull Staff aswell. Only Negatives for me were the Kitchen which is not bad but way to small for the amount of people. Best to avoid busy times. Beds...

Excellent Hostel. Good prices for accommodations, bathrooms were very clean, also the rooms. Staff was very cheerfully and helpfully, Amazing view from the lake when you was at the kitchen. The only negative point was the internet, but who cares.

We booked this as we wanted a very central location in Queenstown so that we could walk easily around the central area. The price suggested that it was budget but we were pleased, it exceeded expectations. The room was compact but very clean with a little en-suite and windows overlooking the town. The windows were double glazed and had internal...

My Travel mate had never stayed at a hostel. She was apprehensive and wary about the experience. As soon as we walked in the door Jamie greeted us with warmth and concern and let her know that all (the room, storing luggage,)would be well taken care of. When I had difficulty obtaining access to my flight information the front desk...

Loved the twin bed room with ensuite bathroom, fridge and microwave. Very quiet and clean. Kitchen has the best view of harbor in town. Jamie at the front desk very helpful in making one feel welcome, has a wonderful sense of humor, and knowledgeable in Queenstown locations and activities.

I work in Southland, so during my days off I usually go to Queenstown for a leisure time. I've stayed in quite a few hostels and backpackers, this one is absolutely one of the best. Great location by the lake, convenient to visit places in town, friendly staff and fortunately got some great roommates, too. Windows in the room got...
