– Adventure is on your doorstep –

Do you want to stay as close to Lake Whakatipu as you can – downtown in Queenstown – with adventure waiting for you at the front doo?

Do you value experience in your holiday – where your accommodation isn’t just a place to rest your head – but somewhere you can enjoy in itself, potentially make lifetime friends, or just drink in your surroundings?

Then consider your search complete – you’ve just lucked out and found it all!  Now you’ve just got to decide what room best suits your needs.

We’ve recently refurbished again in 2019 to make your experience even more enjoyable so you can get the most from your stay.  Our kitchen is 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 Master-chef!

We’ve brought the lounge room downstairs, which allows us to keep it open 24hrs for the night owls – enjoy movies, games, video consoles, books and the company of friends in a cozy environment made for everyone.

Take advantage of our free and secure storage facilities for your bags, bikes, boards or skis.  Enjoy the convenience of a commercial-grade self-service laundromat at your fingertips.  And grab a seat in reception – by the fire of course – and chat to our friendly team and find out what kind of deals we have available for your next experience.

We have multiple room-types to suit every need!  From private rooms that rival hotels for style, comfort and views, to multi-person dorm rooms for solo adventurers or groups of friends with sustainably made bunks with privacy curtains, reading lamps and power-points, personal lockers and free unlimited wi-fi throughout the whole hostel!

And our family rooms are perfect for the whole family without breaking the bank, with all the modern conveniences you’d expect, and family packs to keep the kids entertained.  Or if you’re travelling with friends and need some privacy, we can provide Twins and Triples to suit every group if the private rooms don’t meet your needs.

So let us help you create the perfect memory of your visit to the Adventure Capital of the world – just make sure to book direct here on our website, phone or email to guarantee the best deals for your perfect Queenstown hostel experience.
