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.
