The YHA Queenstown Lakefront is a wonderful choice for backpackers in New Zealand. This Queenstown 4 star hostel is comfortable, clean and in a great location. It is right on the shore of Lake Wakatipu, so guests can enjoy amazing views of the lake and of the surrounding mountain ranges. It is also just a ten minute walk from the hostel to the heart of Queenstown, so you can easily reach all the town has to offer, including cafes and nightlife.

Queenstown is a great area to visit in any season, especially for outdoor enthusiasts. In the summer, you can enjoy the lake and rivers with swimming, fishing, boating, kayaking and rafting. You can also choose to stay on land and hike, bike or play a round of golf. In the winter, you can head up into the mountains for skiing. There are many ski slopes and trails available to you.

At the end of a busy day, the hostel has everything you need to be comfortable. There is a communal kitchen where you can cook your own dinner. There are common rooms, which are great places to meet other backpackers, read a book, check your email at the computer station, or simply unwind after a busy day. The staff is quite friendly and is willing to arrange tours and travel for you. You will surely have a stress-free holiday in New Zealand if you stay at this hostel.
