Hostel YHA Queenstown Central - Backpacker - Queenstown

4 star Hostel Queenstown

48 Shotover Street - Queenstown

Price starting from NZD 37.00
For a first rate New Zealand 4-star hostel with a prime location, there is no better choice than the YHA Queenstown Central. Located right in the heart of Queenstown, this accommodation is within walking distance of several cafes, bars, restaurants, and the waterfront. You will love being this close to everything in the city.

Queenstown is an excellent spot for those who love the outdoors. It is surrounded by mountains, which are perfect for hiking and biking in the summer and skiing in the winter. It is also on the shore of Lake Wakatipu where you can swim, fish, and go boating. There are rivers and forests in the area, which are fun to explore. The more adventurous can try skydiving, luging, or hang gliding in the area.

When you are ready to relax, the YHA Queenstown Central is a great place to do so. There are common areas and a library where you can spend the evening chatting with friends, reading, or playing a board game. The best feature, however, might be the friendly staff that is happy to help you make tour and travel arrangements or store your luggage. Wireless high-speed Internet access is available for a surcharge. Overall, this is a very fun place to stay in Queenstown.
