Catering to independent travellers from around the world we offer mostly shared room accommodation and run in-house activities 7 nights a week to make it easy to meet fellow explorers from all around the world. We are a smaller hostel with a maximum capacity of about 50 people - the perfect number for keeping a family atmosphere which is still fun and vibrant. AQ is the most centrally located accommodation in town, you are just a few minutes' walk to everything and at night we guarantee you'll sleep soundly as there are no bars directly by us.
Our spacious and well designed rooms feature custom made hand-built timber bunks, ultra comfortable innerspring mattresses, two pillows and all made up with freshly laundered linen and are ready to hop straight into. Each bunk also includes USB charging ports & electrical outlets, a reading light, ample shelving, a secure under-bed storage locker and privacy curtains. Our rooms also include A/C, heat pump, free high-speed wifi and towels are included as standard!
AQ's balcony spaces are the best in town and a great place to enjoy a drink in the sun. The lounge and dining areas are spacious for a small hostel, which allows plenty of room to chill out, work nomadically or meet new friends. You'll be cooking up a feast in our superbly equipped kitchen that features everything from crockpot's to salad knives!
There is a tour desk where our friendly staff can help you plan your activities, as well as a separate storage/locker room with secure bicycle parking and ski & snowboard storage. We offer loads of free stuff and even a simple laundry service.

COVID 19 Policy
As per New Zealand Government stipulations, in the event of a guest testing positive to Covid-19, you will need to self-isolate for 7 days at your own expense. You will be required to proactively find other suitable accommodation and be financially prepared to cover this cost. Our hostel is not equipped to offer self-isolation due to the shared living nature of hostel life. As per our refund policy, there are no refunds for Covid-19 reasons (with the exception of the government closing the border, which is unlikely). We urge all guests to ensure they have suitable travel insurance.
As we are a small hostel, our reception is open from 8.30am to 7.30pm.
We operate with a maximum 10-day stay policy in any 30 day period. Any bookings made to accumulate more than 10 days will be cancelled.
Late check-ins are not possible without prior notice. So, if you will arrive after 7.30pm, please email or call us 2-3 days before you arrive, and we will provide instructions on how to self-check-in.
Cancellations must be made more than 48 hours prior to the day of arrival. Cancellations made within 48 hours from the date of arrival will incur additional charges equivalent to the first night's accommodation. No Shows will be charged the first nights accommodation.
Check-in is available after 8.30am, however please note that beds/rooms will not be ready until after 2pm. We have storage facilities for the interim and common areas are free for use.
We do not allow minors under the age of 17 in shared rooms, with or without guardians. Families are welcome, but would be required to book an entire room.
