Alexandra is a sleepy little town that you can walk through in less than five minutes with no real attractions to offer besides local hospitality., but it's a nice place to be if you're looking for a hostel. It is also a great location if you are working in the vineyards over harvest and it is only an hour from Queenstown and Wanaka. So there is plenty of opportunity to escape small town life if you have a car.

The landscape around the city is breathtaking as you weave through the Central Otago mountains, valleys, and lakes. Spectacular and serene at night when window lights scatter through the dark under an expansive starry sky. The scenery is even more beautiful in the Autumn when the tall poplar trees and vineyard leaves change to shades of orange and yellow and the area comes alive for a short time with the buzz of vintage in the crisp air. Alexandra is a great place to go wine tasting at a local winery, many of which are owned and run by families nearby. Many wineries close after Easter for the winter, so make sure you plan ahead to avoid disappointment. Options for dining out in Alex are fairly limited and the nightlight is what you would expect of a small farming community. Take your pick between two or three bars where you could very well have a fun night meeting and drinking with locals.

Your options for hostels in Alexandra are clearly limited, but it is a good place to stay. There are options for camping as well. Alexandra is the epitome of typical small town New Zealand life, nothing exciting except the scenery however the locals wouldn't even think of living anywhere else.
