      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.

      Et war eng kuerz Busrees bis op Queenstown. Daat war gutt, well den Bus deen mir haaten war relativ kleng an d'Leit waren immens ustrengend. Zu Queenstown ukomm, sin mir kuerz duerch d'Staat gelaaf an bis an den Park. Den Zentrum ass relativ kleng, mee et ass eng schein Staat mat engem groussen Séi an mat Bierger ronderem.

      We arrived in Queenstown Tuesday afternoon and settled into the YHA Lakefront. This YHA is located about 10 minutes walk from town and across the road from Lake Wakatipu. The town centre of Queenstown is relatively compact but with quite a lot of interesting shops and, of course, cafes, restaurants etc.

      Tonight is our third and last night in Queenstown. If we had a whole month left instead of just ten days we would stay here as long as possible! We drove in from Franz Josef on Tuesday, a picturesque journey that took us 8 hours door-to-door though luckily not all spent driving. We stopped for lunch in sandfly central so ended up eating in the car …
