Great location
Great location - shared bathroom wasn’t clean- a LOT of hair in the shower!

Not bad, left happy
Decent quality hostel in Queenstown. Service was great, staff was always friendly and helpful. Beds were comfortable, but room was rather small. Didn't seem to be enough toilets/showers relative to how many beds there were. Common area was open and comfortable, clean and well kept. The breakfast is very basic (waffles), but it's free and hearty. Limited parking. Great location, only 2 blocks from downtown Queenstown.

Clean, spacious and simple hostel accommodation in the heart of Queenstown. Works great for travelers in transit for a night or two. Kitchen is well equipped to make your own meal too.

Some of the staff could be a bit more enthusiastic when greeting guests into the property. Could also include multiple clothing drying racks inside each room as my personal belongings were touched and I ended up losing a face towel even though I labelled it with my name. I really liked how there were board games available as well as Netflix and that there were waffles and vegetable soup offered. That was a big plus for me.

Enjoyed staying at Tahuna Pod Hostel
One recommened hostel in Queenstown. Convenient location near to the town centre. Staff are friendly and helpful. The hostel facilities clean and well organised. The free waffle breakfast and soup in dinner time are good treats. Hope the unsteady shower temperature could be improved.
