Welcome to Absoloot Value Accommodation!

Opened on the 20th of June 2010, Absoloot Value Accommodation (AVA) debuted itself to the world, young and eager to please, with a variety of accommodation options for Queenstown backpackers, flashpackers, and the value-seeking Queenstown traveler!

Now with 6 years under our belts, we continue to offer our guests a range of hostel accommodation configurations in a fresh, contemporary style. Our dorms have a maximum capacity of 6 people, whilst our private configurations rival hotels in regards to their fit-out – we’re definitely more than just a bed in a room! Our location is hard to beat, and with 4-stories of character looking out over The Remarkables and Lake Wakatipu, you can see why we rank highly with across our review mediums.

If you want all of Queenstown’s various attractions on your doorstep, want value for money, or just want to be downtown in the thick of the action, then consider your search complete – you’ve just lucked out and found it all in one neat, friendly package. From Winterfest to New Years Eve, we’ve probably got everything you need without the price normally associated with down-town lodging, not to mention a couple of friendly* (*read: good looking) faces behind the reception desk to help you get the most out of your Queenstown experience.

We’ve recently refurbished again in 2015 to make your experience even more enjoyable.  Our kitchen is now one of the best in New Zealand, with views to capture your adventurous imagination, and outfitted with everything you need to bring out your inner Masterchef!  We’ve brought the lounge room downstairs, which allows us to keep it open 24hrs for your night owls, and is equipped with a games-specific LCD TV (Xbox and Wii), SKY/Movies specific LCD TV, board games, books and guitars.  We’ve even added a dorm bathroom with multiple showers and toilets, so if you’re en suite is occupied, you don’t have to ‘hold it’!  We were already one of the better Queenstown hostels, but with all of our changes we’ve only solidified oursevles as one of the best accommodation options for your Queenstown holiday.

If you’re an independent traveler, traveling in a group or even as a family, check out our dorm room options to find the most suitable configuration for your needs.  Our 6-bed shared dorms are perfect for those on a budget, and they’re also our most spacious option.  The 6-bed en suite dorms are extremely comfortable and well equipped, with bathroom and LCD TV as well.  Finally our 4-bed dorms are our ‘flagship’ option, with all the modern conveniences you could ask for in a dorm (including a fridge!).  They’re ideal for families as well, as the 4-bed option is equipped with a duo bunk (double bed on the bottom, single on top), so Mum and Dad can still share a double bed whilst the kids occupy the rest!  And of course who could forget our private room options – equipped with everything you’d get in a hotel – and some of the best views available from any Queenstown accommodation provider.
