                    Really enjoyed the comfy bed's and room and the bar.

                    Only 2 things to look at 1 lights in the room are good for your bed but need lights down the middle for looking for your gear and packing up and need a longer timer in the shower but other wise really enjoyed the stay and would definitely be back.

                    Good for youngsters, good value for money, perfect location.

                    too noisy in night of doors opening and closing.

                    The fact that it was very noisy for most of the night with parties/heated discussions in the corridors. We didn't complain as there is a bar underneath and obviously the Base is more for the younger audience. Want be staying at this accommodation again in the future.

                    If you are a solo traveler or want to make heaps of friends, definitely stay here you will not regret it! So much fun and the people you meet are amazing!

                    The showers were annoying!

                    Basepackers exceeded our expectations. It was great, but Check in should be earlier than 1pm. People want to get checked in and settled, that was ourselves, but we got to see the same problem arise when we were checking out. I understand that you have to clean rooms, but I do feel that that the Check in time could be something to look at.

                    5.8

                    It was really noisy! We had a room right above the bar and although we had ear plugs we could not sleep..

                    Location of base is superb , and base travel was excellent . Would recommend base queenstown to everybody.

                    It was a great place to meet like minded travellers .the night life was good fun also.

                  • Group of friends
                    7.4

                    it was very handy to everything, was able to get bus just round corner to the events centre where we went to concert, and were able to get one back as well. Spoilt for choice for restaurants, found the young staff at chicos very friendly to us middleaged women!

                    just thought the bathroom should have been cleaned properly, but generally were satisfied, the staff were helpful.

                  • Couple
                    5.0

                    Convenient. Close to town and bus station.

                    The room was terrible. No window. No fresh air. Smelly and hot. There was a fan to circulate the poor closed in sweaty old air. The fan was not helpful. What is required is a window for fresh air or an exchange of fresh air via air conditioning. The room was not at all what we expected from the pictures shown of the backpackers. Not worth $80. We felt like we were in a prison cell. We couldn't even leave the door open. Tough luck for the next person who gets that room. Certainly won't be us staying there again.

                  • Single
                    8.2

                    Price and location mainly. The rooms etc were fine but to be fair I wasn't there long

                    To be honest the biggest down side was most people were quie a bit younger than me, but to be expected!
