Free 1GB per day for YHA members (valid for stays).

Centrally located in the heart of buzzing Queenstown, the perfect base for your stay.

Previously part of the ‘Old Mountaineer Hotel', one of the first hotels in Queenstown, all the accommodation at the YHA Queenstown Central hostel now includes ensuites and TVs (with free movies), free tea and coffee in private rooms and some rooms even have their own private courtyard or balcony overlooking the lake. Backpackers love that all the multi-share rooms are nice and small (5-share maximum) and all with private ensuites. The views from the comfortable upstairs lounge make for a most picturesque chill-out zone.

The staff are super-friendly and clued up about getting you the best possible deals on activities in Queenstown, which they're happy to book for free on your behalf.

Booking Conditions:
YHANZ is a not for profit membership organisation. Cancellations must be received 24hrs before arrival date, otherwise the first night for all accommodation booked will be charged.

  • The only benefit of this place is the location. We experienced rude - unaccommodating check in staff our receipt said check in 2pm but we couldn't check in till 230 - sure its only half an hr but after 13hrs of overnight travel a bit annoying! the place was so noisy and we had to use ear plugs in order to sleep. Our room was right next to the common area were everyone drank the closing times of the area changed and no one was interested in our complaint of noisy people after 10pm. Don't stay here unless you intend to drink every night and don't want to sleep before midnight! . 1

  • Hi Kristen, Thanks you for leaving feedback on your stay here. We’re really sorry to hear that you didn’t receive the warm welcome from a friendly staff member that the YHA is known for and while we certainly don’t feel this is common, it’s certainly unacceptable from our point of view. We expect better of our staff and will be speaking to them about this. We also apologise for the confusion regarding your check in time. The standard check in time is 14:30 as this allows for the cleaning staff to complete the cleaning schedule and for us to ensure your room is ready for you. At times, the cleaners can finish earlier or they can overrun and we try our best to get guests into bedrooms as soon as possible. The staff member may likely have had the best intentions which, unfortunately, they could not deliver. Noise in the hostel can be an issue as we are located in the centre of town and we do try to minimise the noise within the hostel by closing the common areas at 10pm. We also have a night security staff member who, along with other tasks, can deal with noise complaints before or as they arise. As there is little we can do to mitigate the noise from outside the hostel, we like to suggest that those wanting a more peaceful night’s sleep may prefer to stay at the Queenstown Lakefront YHA which is only a ten minute walk from the town centre though they lack the ensuite facilities that we have. Once again, thank you for sharing your experience, we will certainly be acting on your concerns and we endeavour to improve our services so as to provide all our guests have the best experience we can
