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.

I love the location very much. Your staff is amazingly friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable. One thing I would improve is kitchen organization, but don't mind me I am an organizing freak :)

It would be more than 100% satisfied and convenience if check out become 11am, plus strongly supported to have room rate raised 25% to helping operation costs.

Location is outside of the centre of Queenstown, however, this has its benefits. Has great views of Lake Wakatipu and is a short 5-10 minute walk to central Queenstown. I like that they have a storage box outside so you can leave you luggage for a few days. The hostel is very well presented.
