Bed in 8-Bed Dormitory Room - Lake View
Stayed 3 nights in January 2023

Nice choice for holiday”

I've stayed for 3 nights here with my partner's parents - they stayed in their own double room. My room was a 8 mixed dormitory room, there was a lamp each bed and also a locker. Definitely enough powers to recharge your electronic stuff. Room was quite warm, basically Queenstown was so warm this time, but it didn't seem to have AC in the room, so people left the fan on whole days. I mean, if you would stay outside, it's awesome. In the shared bathroom, there were many shower booth and were a couple of hair dryers. Double room with lake view was awesome, I didn't stay in the room, but I visited my partner's parents' room, they were so happy with everything in the room. There was a bench in their balcony so that you can have good time with good view. They described it was like a hotel room.
