  We stayed in a double room with lake views. It was awesome. The same view of the lake from one of the major hotels would have been hundreds of dollars a night more. The rooms are basic but very clean. The staff were wonderful, always polite and helpful. The share bathrooms were very clean. Great relax areas inside and out. Kitchen area huge and clean. 5 star hostel accommodation. Travelers ranged from under 16s Rugby team to geriatric couples. All mingled well, shared, and went their own ways. A great cheap holiday accommodation stay.

Clean hostel, nice kitchen
One of the nicer, roomier dorms in which I've stayed. Clean place, good showers in a roomy bathroom, great kitchen with lots of stovetop options, and a terrific selection of tours and activities. I was a bit annoyed that they charged 10 cents for salt and sugar, especially since spices like cinnamon and garlic powder were free, but they did have a nice selection of goods at the desk.

Well worth a stay
Great location, riverside, a short walk into CBD. Big, well stocked kitchen, rooms clean, all was quite fine.

Geriatric much?
The hostel was seriously lacking in atmosphere. It appears there is a group of oldies living there! Don't expect a fun night in with grandma in the lounge snapping at you. Beds were sunken and uncomfortable and the bathrooms needed work. Honestly, go somewhere else. Hostel Fail!

Too Noisy and Cell Like Rooms
Poor layout, the traffic along the hallways to the bathrooms is deafening. Nothing in basic single but a bed (comfortable enough) and a chair. Tomorrow night I'm going to a cheap hotel where I can hopefully get some sleep, and they'll let me put my luggage into my room even if it's before 2:30 p.m.

Awesome Place! Stay here if you're not too party inclined.
This place is great! It's incredibly clean. It's a beautiful location. The staff are the greatest. It's quiet which is a huge plus compared to the Queenstown Central YHA. This place is for people who are in NZ to relax a bit, rather than just party. It has a dry room which is great for ski gear, great amenities. There is internet and a really great kitchen. It is a bit of a walk to town, but for the tranquility it's worth it. I highly recommend it.

A little further from the town than expected
Great quality hostel with bunks that were attached to the wall in the twin room (so no squeaking!). It was a little further than I had expected from the city but a nice walk along the lake to get there. The hostel had parking across the road. Wish there hadn't been so many stairs to the room as I had a rather heavy suitcase

Friendly staff, clean, and beautiful view
We stayed in a five-bed dorm for three nights in September 2008 and absolutely loved the place. The kitchen is very big and fully equipped with clean all-white plates, bowls, saucers, mugs. Best of all, the receptionist (I did not ask for her name), but she's from Slovakia was very, very friendly and helpful with all our requests. Thank you! Oh, we were very encouraged and pleased at the great efforts to be green, as there were facilities everywhere to help guests to recycle.
