My review is written a bit late, as I travelled to NZ on last yr Xmas. However this plc is nice, clean, neat. And just a few walks you can see the lake, the market and the best burger restaurant in town, Fergburger. The receptionist also nice. But the only bad thg abt this hostel is we have to park our car quite far for overnight (near to the Gondola), quite tiring to walk over there, haha. If you dont hv car, then this is a best place to stay.

Absoloot hostel has the best vibe, best location, cleanest and most spacious, and most backpacker friendly rooms in Queenstown. I've stayed in a few hostels in QT, i can't fault this place! There's a comfy tv room with pool table, lakeside views, and the most chilled friendly atmosphere. All bunks have got their own plugs n lights and bathrooms are ensuite. Rooms are warm in winter and propper comfy doonas are provided. It's very meticulously cleaned.

We had a corner room on an upper floor with huge windows on two sides facing the water and dock area. The rooms have individually controlled AC and heat. There was a microwave, fridge and coffee maker in the room. Free wifi was very much appreciated. Excellent location only a few steps away from restaurants and shops. The front desk staff were very kind and helpful to us. This was the best hotel/hostel of the 3 that we were in during our stay in Queenstown.

Room Tip: corner room is the best

I was quite looking forward to stay in Absoloot as it really has very good review on tripadvisor.
Unfortunately I was totally dissapointed.

The reception staff is not friendly. In fact, the girl sitting at the reception just showed us that kind of "there is nothing i can do for you" face when we tried to inquiry on the remote control for the aircond. The aircond temperature is central control which mean you cant adjust it accordingly even you feel the temperature is too warm.
The blanket has funny smell that I have to hold my breath each time I flipped it. The room is always full with oily kitchen smell because the kitchen is located at the ground floor ,the smell travel up when there is people cooking downstairs. this make our clothing all stained with funny smell.
It is happening place at MIDNIGHT where people get drunk and decided to sing out loud and play funny music.
I will never come back or recommend this hostel to anyone.

Room Tip: maybe can try to arrange for a room away from the street and higher floor.so that it wont be so noise at night and smelly when people cooking

Bed so springy until your back is directly lying on spring. Terrible night time with people talk&sing loudly on the street.
We there for 2 nights can't rest well. The smoke came from kitchen make the room so smelly.
We choose this place because of lake view but we are not always there to view the lake but to rest at night time.
