Find us on Shotover St next to the Night ‘n Day. There is no on-site parking and street parking is limited. Please have a chat to staff so they can direct you to the nearest carpark. The closest free parking is 15 minutes’ walk from the hostel and is subject to availability. It is highly advised to carry snow chains at all times during winter.


This hostel couldn’t be more aptly named – nestled between the Wakatipu lakefront and Shotover St it’s right in the rapidly beating heart of this famous little resort town of Queenstown. Everything is on your doorstep – cafes, bars, restaurants and the waterfront with all its activities.

Previously part of the ‘Old Mountaineer Hotel’, one of Queenstown's first hotels, YHA Queenstown Central enjoys stunning views from the communal lounge and features ensuites in every room. Our 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.

Please note there is no bike storage or onsite parking at the hostel.
