          I think this is the best affordable place to stay in Queenstown. The kitchen facilities are excellent. Many of the buses stop right outside. The bedding and towels provided were very clean. My only complaint would be that the walls between rooms are quite thin.

          Bed linen was provided automatically during my visit in April 16 but not sure if you can hire towels (will cost slightly more if you can) as I used my own.
