Best Backpackers in Queenstown

Local Recommendations from our My Guide Queenstown team

Queenstown Backpacker accommodation is some of the best in the country. Being the adventure capital of New Zealand, the town is well geared up to provide surprisingly good hostels and dorms for both young and old. Great CBD locations, too.

Backpacker Queenstown accommodation is everywhere you look. The YHA offers hostels on Shotover Street and Lake Esplanade, while the Absoloot Value hostel on Beach Street is one of the newest in town. For the views, try Gorge Road (Alpine, Aspen) and Robins Road. Most hostels have free wi-fi and superb communal facilities.
