Queenstown Hostel

Hostel Queenstown

Welcome to our hostel

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, New Zealand 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.

Sehr laut und hellhörig. Die Mitarbeiterin bei der Ankunft war sehr unfreundlich. Die Küche war ganz ganz toll. Sehr gut. Die Lage hat mir besonders gefallen. Ich war leider in einem der älteren Zimmer untergebracht. Zu wenig Toiletten dort.

There are loud walking from some customers because the floor is made of wood. It is easy to make noise from walking on. Please inform to customers that please walk slowly and quiet.

Très belle auberge bien plaçée à deux pas du centre ville. De beaux espaces pour la cuisine et les salons. Les chambres sont un peu trop petites (cellule de moines). Le confort est soigné. Idéale pour profiter de la merveilleuse région de Queenstone.
