A Warm Welcome to
Adventure Queenstown Hostel
For a cultural experience and your home away from home.
We offer boutique and homely hostel accommodation, which is truly owned and run by intrepid travellers. Centrally located in the heart of Queenstown, we pride ourselves on providing a high level of comfort with personal service. New and modern, with a relaxed atmosphere, we aim to provide a new level of comfort in a hostel.
We’re an owner-run hostel, which provides an environment of personal service from staff who have travelled the world and can understand the tricky situations we all encounter when travelling. With a quality of furnishing not always seen in hostels, we aim to give a lot more at little cost. Our doors are open to people from all around the world and of all ages.
In the afternoon you can enjoy a drink in the sun on our fantastic balconies and watch the hustle and bustle of busy Camp Street, yet in the evening you can enjoy some peace and quiet as there are no loud late-night venues directly by us. You can be assured of a good night’s sleep!
We are a small/medium hostel with a maximum capacity of around 50 people, which we believe is a perfect number for keeping our homely feel while enjoying a fun and vibrant atmosphere.

We generally have teams of staff on board for a full summer or winter season, so it’s not very often a position becomes available. All our staff work part-time and tend to have a second paying job as well. While we usually invite people who are currently staying with us as guests to join our dynamic team, a well written email with well presented CV attached has been known to catch our attention. However, if we may be looking for a new team member, the best way is still to stay as a guest while looking other work and hope that we notice you! Sorry, we cannot consider people who are only available for the short term.

Updates from adventure queenstown
> "This was hands down the best hostel I have ever stayed in and I think the way it is run, with all of the features and amenities makes it a model for how all hostels should be created and managed. They have a ten night max probably due to the fact people would opt to live here. It is not a 'party hostel' like some others in the area, but that does not mean it is opposed to drinking or fun. It is like staying in a clean cosy house with all of your best friends having a sleep over. Just fantastic" – 13 April 14, Tessa from USA
> "I have travelled all the way from Russia, through Mongolia and China, and ended up in New Zealand where I stayed at a hostel that was even greater than I could imagine. One thing I particularly liked about this place, was the atmosphere, and the staff's commitment to making it an awesome experience, by arranging different activities every night, to make it easier for the visitors to get to know some of the other guests at the hostel.

> "Great Hostel. Felt super secure. The staff went out of their way to may us feel welcomed and were full of very useful information about the area. The location is as good as it gets. You are only steps away from everything in downtown Queenstown. I highly recommend this hostel and feel its a GREAT deal for your money. Most hotels I have stayed at do not provide the service and accommodations this hostel has." – 3 Sep 14, Fallon from USA
