Great location right in the town centre. Staying in an 8 bed room with 7 women it was every guys dream apart from the mess they had everywhere so not really the fault of the hostel but it made getting in and out of the room (obstacle course) a pain.

Such a wonderful stay over Christmas!!

After staying in some awful dirty hostels, i was worried when we arrived. I had booked a private king roon with ensuite for 4 nights over christmas. As soon as we walked into the room we were delighted. We had a balcony, wet room!, tv, comfy bed, kettler, etc etc! And everything was so clean!!!! It was noisy as the clubs/bars were under our balcony but we slept through it fine. You can ask for ear plugs at reception. The only other bit was the tv was restricted to 25 on the volume which would be ok but due to the bars below and the music in the halls, it was hard to hear so thats the only thing i would alter. Other than that, it was a wonderful stay. I wish we had booked longer. Queenstown was amazing! Also the nomads staff also did us a stocking christmas morning which was nice to wake up too! Loved every minute xx

Worse 3 night sleep ever! Room was nice, stayed in a 4 bed female dorm with en suite, which was nice. However the music on the back side of hostel goes on till 3am every morning! If you've get an early starts not a good place. Staff didn't seem interested when told and told one of the girls who complained, 'do you want me to call the sound police?'

Solo traveller

I enjoyed staying at Nomads Queenstown. In my room I have met incredible people who became my friends. The location is perfect and the amenities top! Only problems, the cost of the WIFI and the laundry...but the staff is great and I appreciated having a free breakfast every morning... So Thank you!
