For a first rate New Zealand hostel with a prime location, there is no better choice than the YHA Queenstown Central. Located right in the heart of Queenstown, this accommodation is within walking distances of several cafes, bars, restaurants and the waterfront. You will love being this close to everything in the city. Queenstown is an excellent spot for those who love the outdoors. It is surrounded by mountains, which are perfect for hiking and biking in the summer and skiing in the winter. It is also on the shore of Lake Wakatipu where you can swim, fish, boat or a host of other water sports. There are rivers, forests and other natural wonders in the area, as well, which are fun to explore. The more adventurous can try skydiving, luging or hang gliding in the area. When you are ready to relax, the YHA Queenstown Central is a great place to do so. There is a lounge where you can enjoy panoramic views. There are common areas where you can spend the evening chatting with friends, reading or playing a board game. The best feature, however, might be the friendly staff that is happy to help you make tour and travel arrangements. Overall, this is a very fun place to stay in Queenstown.
