    Great hostel. Clean, well organized, nice people. I had a female-only dorm, with a nice balcony and our own shower. There's a big TV-room, lounge spot with big sofas (ideal for reading a book). The location in town was perfect too! Loved it!

    Dry Hostel

    Upon check-in, with our duty free bottles of alcohol clinking in our hands, we were told that this hostel had now become a dry hostel.
    It would have been nice to sit in the lounge in front of the fireplace with a mulled wine or Baileys & milk instead of having to go out anytime we wanted an alcoholic drink.
    Other than that the staff were very friendly and accommodating. Nomads offered daily events; varying from a hike to bingo and drinks offers at The Find.

    Would definitely recommend this hostel, just unfortunate that its dry.

    its voted the best hostel in NZ for a reason. I had a room with a balcony, there's a TV room, lounge with sofas and fire, free tea/coffee and toast at breakfast, free dinner, sauna and a good location in town :)

    Day 10

    A travel blog entry by becky_whitmore on Aug 30, 2014

    Today is our last full day in Queenstown :-( After a few early starts we enjoyed a lie-in and then went on a very challenging hike up a steep hill to come back down on the gondola; the views of Queenstown were amazing. Then we did some shopping so that I could finally get some replacement jeans, and then we went to the lake for Rosie and Robyn's …

    Day 9

    Today we went to Milford Sound, the '8th wonder of the world' and recently voted the most beautiful place in the world. It was a long drive but the driver was hilarious! The boat cruise was really nice and relaxing, very beautiful. We got back late so had (another) Ferg Burger for dinner - this time Bambi which was amazing - and an early night.

    I had my first skiing experience today! I had a couple of lessons at Cardrona whilst the others went on the slopes. I was better than expected but I had trouble stopping which is a bit of a problem! Difficult but fun :-) When we got back to Queenstown we went to the Ferg Bakery to try a pie and then went to the cookie monster place for cookies and milkshake which were amazing :-)

    We had a quick stop at Puzzling Word this morning before heading to Queenstown, the action and party capital! Rosie had convinced me to do a canyon swing, the worlds highest apparently! There are over 70 ways of jumping and I chose 'the chair of death'! I was incredibly scared but the guys were hilarious (and hot!) which made it slightly easier. It …

    Hallo allemaal,

    Mijn laaste paar weken Nieuw-Zeeland zijn alweer ingegaan, en de afgelopen twee weken had ik vakantie :) Om de laatste dingen van NZ te zien, en een paar dagen Ozzie. De kids groeien met de dag, Dexter is ondertussen begonnen op Kindy en Piper begint al echte woorden te zeggen (voor veel na-apen). De familie heeft ook een …
