Situated on the shores of Lake Wakatipu, with views of the lake and remarkable mountain range, YHA Queenstown Lakefront is located just a 10-minute walk from the centre of Queenstown and 20-minute drive to the ski fields.

Spacious common areas offer stunning lake views and a fireplace. Guests enjoy free use of the BBQ area, plus free movies, board games and a guitar. The internet lounge features a wireless hotspot.

Queenstown is the place where you can do it all. Known as the adventure capital of the world you will be spoilt for choice, from bungee jumping to jet boating and sky diving to canyoning. For those with more gentle pursuits in mind, cruise the lake on the old steamship the Earnslaw, visit historic Arrowtown, take a Lord of the Rings tour or enjoy excellent local wineries. Don’t forget the splendour of a day trip to Doubtful or Milford Sounds.

The staff at this hostel were great! They were so nice, and really helpful with booking activities, giving recommendations etc. It's a tiny bit further out of town than the other yha, but still only about a 5 minute walk away.
