After having stayed in a couple of other hostels over the past few weeks in Queenstown Black Sheep was very refreshing. I honestly cannot praise this place enough!
Myself and my boyfriend stayed here for a week in a mixed dorm. The staff are so polite and helpful. We were given a warm welcome and everything was explained to us thoroughly.
The communal lounge area is warm and comfortable with heaps of bean bags, sofas and a log burner that you can be in control of if you end up getting a bit chilly. They even have a Sunday night film night where they play a feature film at 9pm.
The whole hostel is kept clean and tidy. The bathrooms are super clean and even have a hair dryers in. The hair dryer stopped working but they fixed the issue straight away. They do their best to keep the kitchen clean - although they do shut the kitchen at about 1.30-2pm to clean which is a little awkward with it being lunch time.
Check in time is later than most (3pm) but you can still leave your luggage in their FREE luggage storage and use their kitchen,lounge and bathrooms - extremely handy if you're moving from hostel to hostel.
There are so many little things that make this hostel so customer friendly - free, fast and unlimited wifi, free bicycle rental, a massive DVD/VHS collection, great location (literally a walk through the gardens to get to town) and free disc rental for frisbee golf. They have all the little touches down to the very last thing. This is the best review I have given a hostel since moving around Queenstown. I would absolutely recommend The Black Sheep to anyone - and with having a weekly rate of $160 a week it's the totally worth it.
