Had a private double room, with en suite - so not typical hostel experience. Very nice room and facilities - basic, but good clean "motel" quality. Good view from upper floor and balcony. Nice and central in Queenstown. But expensive (paying for the location, of course).

Not really much to say as we missed out pre paid nights stay here after being stuck by flooding on a track. We booked and paid for another night but staff couldn’t seem to care less about our situation.

Good location, close to shops and restaurants. The property is in good condition. Has everything a motel would have in a private room. However we had to basically shout at staff when checking in the music was so loud repeating ourselves three times. The room was so small there was nowhere to put bags other than beside the bed and the hot water ran out in the shower. There were only 3 tv channels to choose from as the others didn’t work. Quite disappointing for $150 a night.
