When you stay with Absoloot Hostel Queenstown, you can be assured you’re in the closest accommodation to beautiful Lake Whakatipu – we actually measured just to be sure!

Zoom out on the map a little to get a handle on the size of Queenstown – the CBD is where you’ll spend 99% of your time while you’re here.  Your next adventure really is just out the front door!

Please be aware that because of our premier location we don’t have parking available on site.  There is 24hr free on-street parking nearby the hostel, however please be aware as this is on-street it does work on a first-come/first-serve basis.  There are also paid parking stations and parking spaces nearby if need be. Please see our map on our FAQ’s page for the best areas for loading/unloading and parking!  

But honestly our location is so good and everything is so close you don’t need a car!  We’re only 150 meters from the nearest public bus stop – Orbus – where you’ll get off if coming from the airport on the public bus service.  And we’re approximately 130 meters from the Queenstown bus depot – located on Athol Street – if you’re travelling on Intercity (or any other private bus system).

For information on how to get to us from the airport or the bus depot, just pop onto our FAQ page for all of your answers, or feel free to contact any of our friendly reception team.

Otherwise start dreaming of your next experience in Queenstown, and prepare to wake up lakeside, downtown, with adventure on your doorstep – book now before space runs out!
