Nestled between the lakefront and Shotover St, YHA Queenstown Central is right in the rapidly beating heart of this stunning resort town. The hostel is close to all pick up points for activities with bars, clubs, cafes and restaurants just a stone’s throw away.

All rooms include en-suites and TVs (with free movies) and some have their own private courtyard. The views from the comfortable upstairs lounge make for a most picturesque chill-out zone. The staff are super-friendly and clued up about getting you the best possible deals on activities in Queenstown, which they’re happy to book for free on your behalf. There is 24h Internet access.

Guests can take part in activities like: rafting, river surfing, combo trips, scenic tours, wine tours, horse riding, paragliding, jet boating, Milford Sound trips, Mt Aspiring flights and so much more in New Zealand!

Rooms are very clean. It would be good to - at least - offer one towel for drying your hands in the dorms as my roommates did not wash their hands after toilet due to the missing towel! I understand the policy of closing the kitchen during nighttime, however there is then no public space available where people can gather. As some people in a dorm are already sleeping at 10.30pm it is not possible to work or talk in the sleeping room. Another public room would be great!
