Superb 9.0 From 141 reviews

Fair 4.0
One night stay in a shared 4 bedded room dorm
The place gives a "too compact feel" and made us feel really claustrophobic... the pods/beds are really close to each other in the room, hallway really narrow... the toilets and bathrooms are ok, but there were no hooks to place your towels/clothes, floors were wet most of the time, soaked bath mats etc...just little things like that, but these are important things! The beds are really comfortable, and the pods themselves are well designed.

Not bad, left happy
Decent quality hostel in Queenstown. Service was great, staff was always friendly and helpful. Beds were comfortable, but room was rather small. Didn't seem to be enough toilets/showers relative to how many beds there were. Common area was open and comfortable, clean and well kept. The breakfast is very basic (waffles), but it's free and hearty. Limited parking. Great location, only 2 blocks from downtown Queenstown.
