    Pleasant Stay

    We stayed three nights in a twin room with shared bathroom. The room was small and rather plain - two beds, one chair and hooks for hanging - but clean and the beds were comfortable. The kitchen was a reasonable size and well equipped and the lounge and dining areas bright and clean. The hostel is about 10 minutes walk from town and across the road from the lake so location was good. As with most YHAs this was a clean pleasant place to stay.

    Beautiful setting on Lake Waktipu. Rooms are nothing but you should only be in them to sleep anyway, The y are big and that makes it easier to share the dorms. Bathrooms large as well. Everything spotless. The kitchen, lounges, amenties are fantastic.

    Awesome views, not that far from town but a very cold walk in July. Kitchen large but crowded, rooms ok, showers ok. Price around $25 with YHA card.

    Nice hostel, but too big to be social

    Way too big to be social, but a nice place to stay. Looks a way out of town but it only takes 10-15 minutes to stroll (and I mean stroll, only takes 5 minutes to power walk) into town. Only has 5 or 6 parking spaces but free parking available on the road.

    Today me and Amy hung out together in the morning sunbathing until mid afternoon when we went and met Lauren and Katy for the famous Fergburger. Me and Amy shared one as theyre massive, theyre well known in New Zealand. It was a pretty amazing burger but I wouldnt go on about it being one of 2 best burgers in the country! Im glad I have now tried …

    Below Zero

    Today we had booked a voucher to go the local Ice Bar, called Below Zero. Luckily we got advised of some voucher websites and found it pretty cheap! It included a drink too and it was something different to do and something for me to do in general! So we made an effort to look nice, took a walk into town on a really nice hot day and searched for …

    Today was more of the same as yesterday. The girls booked a cool trip on luges up the mountains around Queenstown, theyre like little go karts with just a break they looked pretty cool but I couldnt afford it! So I skyped most of the day, sunbathed and just chilled in the movie room and drew!

    This morning I complained to reception about the corridor and the wifi to the most horrible manager I have ever come across she was so rude and was telling me I was just wrong. The night before we made dinner in the scabbiest of kitchens, it was so clear that no one cleans it, there was dirty utensils everywhere we had to clean things to use them …
