Clean, quiet, and in a great location
Posted Oct 25, 2016 on Hotels
I stayed in a 4-bed female dorm with ensuite. The room had two partial bathrooms - one with a toilet and sink, the other with a shower and sink - which made getting ready very easy. The room shared a spacious balcony with the room next door, overlooking an alleyway at the back of the hostel and the many restaurants and bars back there. Everything in the hostel and the room was very clean and well-maintained, including the kitchen, lounge, and lobby areas. The hostel offers towel hire, which is helpful for backpackers or others traveling with minimal luggage. I had only one issue - we ran out of toilet paper - and after stopping at the registration desk someone brought some up to the room within an hour or so. The hostel is "dry" (no alcohol permitted inside) which kept things fairly quiet, though I always travel with ear plugs just in case. Fellow guests were mostly on the younger side (backpackers/working holidays) though I did notice a number of older travelers as well. The location is perfect - within a half block of the lake at the foot of Queenstown Hill, with a multitude of outdoor shops, souvenir shops, adventure booking shops, restaurants, and takeaways within the small downtown area. I would absolutely stay at Nomads Queenstown again!
