If you want to experience the beauty and excitement of Queenstown but still get a good night’s sleep, then YHA Queenstown Lakefront is the hostel for you – and it’s only a 10 minute walk into town.

YHA's Queenstown Lakefront hostel is a comfortable fully equipped hostel sitting right on the shores of Lake Wakatipu, offering enchanting views of the lake and Remarkables mountain range. Even though the centre of Queenstown is only 10 minutes walk away, this backpackers is remarkably peaceful and quiet so you can still get a good night’s sleep after you’ve been skiing all day and enjoying the Queenstown nightlife all evening.

All the accommodation is comfortable, clean and modern, following recent refurbishment.
