Please read the following restrictions prior to booking.

  • Our availability shown is live.  If we don’t show any available beds, then we are fully booked out, sorry.
  • Can’t find what you need?  Try our sister Adventure Q2 Hostel, also based in the heart of Queenstown! Click here.


  • Please note our reception hours are 8am – 8pm.  Late check-ins can be arranged with prior notice. Please contact us if you will arrive outside these times.
  • We have a maximum stay policy.   For the summer and shoulder seasons this is 10 days and 14 days for the winter period.  Please contact us via email if you wish to stay longer than 10 days during the ski season.
  • Group Bookings – Sorry, as we are a small hostel, we do not accept groups of more than 6 people.  Multiple bookings which add up to greater than 6 people will turned away, even if it become apparent after check-in.
  • Children aged 16 and under are not permitted in shared rooms. Either all 4 or 6 beds must be booked out in a shared room for us to host children. Please contact us prior to booking.
  • Room moves may be necessary. We cannot always guarantee that guests from a group booking will be in the same room or any booking will be in the same room for the duration of the stay, though we will always try our best!
  • For Xmas we require a minimum stay of the 24th & 25th of December.   Sorry, however we cannot accept check-in or check-outs on Xmas Day.
  • For New Year reservations – You must contact us directly to ask for availability.  We do not accept groups at all for NY, singles and pairs/couples only.   We will turn away groups who try to get around this by booking independently, even after check-in if it becomes known.  Queenstown can get crazy at NY so it’s important to us that we remain a chilled out hostel.  So, backpackers, let us know where you are traveling from and what dates you require and, if we have availability, we will let you know what our booking requirements are.
