    I understand that you can't have high expectations while living at a hostel but when they never clean the duvet cases or vacuum the rooms it easily gets dirty with 8 dorm room. And the toilets could definitely need a proper cleaning as well such...More

    Staying at base during the winter season in a 4 bedroom dorm, Is there still underbed storage in these rooms? and in the underbed storage would it be possible to fit a ski bag? Thanks

    Hi Richard, in the 4 bed dorm there is no under bed storage as these are no longer bunk rooms. We have a luggage storage at reception or there in ample space in the room for your ski bag, just no locker. The lockers in our... More

    Hi there, Thanks for your recent feedback regarding your stay at Base Queenstown. You did comment on your room as cramped. With regards to the size of the room - the 8 bed dorms are actually not too bad in size, however when other guests don’t keep their areas tidy and use the under bed storage this can make others feel cramped. I am sorry that this was the case in your situation. You mentioned that the noise of other guests kept you awake during the night. We have a night manager that does regular floor checks during the night to reduce this noise; however he cannot be in two places at once. We apologise for the noise you encountered during your stay. I do hope that you do enjoy the remainder of your travels. Kind regards, J. Smith
