Nomads Queenstown Backpackers

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

It had the perfect location downtown with very short walks to bars, shopping, restaurants and the lake. Also had light breakfast and dinner included. Definitely would stay here again.

King room with bathroom ensuite. Small but adequate. Great rate.

I traveled to Queenstown to visit my son who is working there and this was my first time staying in a hostel. I stayed in a king room with private bath and I was pleasantly surprised at how nice it was. I'm so glad I didn't spend a small fortune on a hotel. Nomads is in an excellent location in the middle of Queenstown and within short walking distance to the lake, Queenstown Gardens and tons of restaurants, bars, etc. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

I stayed 2 separate nights here, & both times, the noise from loud music & partiers went on way past midnight. I am staying at a hostel now, that is respectful of their guests by having a noise curfew of 10:00 & will make sure from now on to look for that when booking.

This is the best hostel I've ever been to. The Rom Comfort section suffers only because of the nature of the type of room I stayed in, a 6-bed share. Even though my roommates were nice and tried to be quiet, our chosen sleep cycles were not in sync and so that was a bit awkward. However, everything else was great. The staff were super nice and friendly and the shared bathroom was kept fairly clean. If you're okay staying at a hostel and share a bedroom with some strangers, this hostel is definitely recommended.

good location, price reasonable, free breakfast and even dinner too if you come early. i really enjoyed my stay. they have enough staffed to keep the place clean specially the kitchen.
