Guest Reviews

LyLo was an awesome place to stay.

Staff are kind, fun and friendly. LyLo hosts events each night so meeting people & making friends was easy. Loved my time there!

This place understands hospitality.

I was thoroughly pleased with my stay. If you have any issues while you are there, talk to reception. They listen and make things right. Keep up that way of service LyLo!

LyLo is the best hostel in Queenstown.

I booked here for 1 night, and liked it so much, I booked 2 more nights!! The place is clean, modern, and has a great view of the gondola mountain. In downtown vibe and easily accessible to everything. I wanna shout out Joao. That guy in reception knows how to be nice, understanding, and welcoming of guests! And Chris for letting me use a phone charger. They are examples of good hospitality in the realm of hostels.

This place makes me want to come back each time!

I prefer to stay in private accommodation, but all I can say is this place makes me want to come back each time with how seamless and easy the check-in/out process is, PODs provide everything for a semi-private stay. Staff are friendly and always willing to assist. Each POD is provided with a pillow, towel, lights, USB slots and AU plugs.
The upstairs chill out area has a real chilled out vibe. Modern, clean and perfectly located near the Fortitude Valley station and surrounding nightlife and shopping areas. This is a highly recommended place if you are looking for an affordable, but value for money stay.

Staff are friendly and helpful!

LyLo Queenstown is clean, tidy; facilities are perfect; staff is very friendly and helpful. Location was very central and easy to get to everywhere. Pleasantly surprised and would definitely stay again.

Would definitely stay again!

LyLo was a great place to stay while getting organised for hikes. Baggage storage was a welcome facility at a great rate. The double room I had was quite and comfortable. Would definitely stay again (actually tried to but they were full booked!)

The location was excellent!

The location was excellent! We chose to stay at this facility because of its proximity to bus-shuttle services and the city centre. We stayed in the female-only pods room and rate this experience highly.


Great Central Location!

Comfortable, clean room. Appears modern and recently decorated with a good private bathroom. Helpful staff. Easy check-in process. Great central location in Queenstown.


Great Location!

Great location, super close to the centre. The rooms were nice and clean!


Amazing Vibes

MD Sakir,

The best hostel I’ve ever stayed in

The location is next to the Intercity bus stop, supermarket, all kinds of cafe shops and eateries, and within walking distance to popular hikes. I loved everything about this place! The staff was friendly, the girls in my dorm were so quiet and considerate at night, my pod had sufficient space and privacy, and the rooftop was excellent for some reading and work. Bathrooms clean.

Comfortable stay and good alternative to the usual hostel bed for more privacy. The location is also super convenient. Ben was very helpful in giving tips and could even check me in early.
