Absoloot Value Accommodation
Absoloot Value Accommodation (AVA) opened in June 2010 with a variety of accommodation options for the backpacker, flash-packer and value-seeking traveler! AVA has an outlook second-to-none and four stories worth of character and comfort.
Absoloot Value Accommodation (AVA) has been designed with the backpacker, ‘flash packer’ and value-seeking traveler in mind. AVA is boutique backpackers in that we only have four and six bed dorms, and we have a maximum occupancy of 82. We provide free linen and towels for all guests, and every bathroom includes hair and body wash for everyone's use.
Each room has been fitted with double glazing and shutters to keep the heat in and the noise out. And there's a heat pump/reverse-cycle air-conditioner in every room, so you can stay warm in winter and cool in summer.
The beds are fitted with reading lights, and extra power points so you can charge your phone, laptop and ipod all at the same time if you wish! There's also a fridge in every room (except 6-bed dorms), so you can keep an eye on your personal food. And if you feel like chilling out at the end of the day and want to do your own thing, there's an LCD TV in every room (except 6-bed non-ensuite), so you don't always have to watch what everyone else wants to!
The Loungue Room is now open 24hrs for those insomniacs, and it's euipped with a Nintendo Wii, XBox 360 and various board games to incite some healthy competition, and a 42 inch LCD television for movie evenings and major sporting events. We've even outfitted the room with 2 TV's so some can enjoy a movie while others play video games! There's also a well-equipped reading nook to keep the mind ticking.
Our Guest Kitchen is now on the 2nd floor with multiple microwaves, ovens and stoves, and plenty of bench/eating space to enjoy your fine cuisine! With views looking out across Lake Wakatipu, you can start your day with a free hot chocolate, tea or coffee from our auto-urn, and prepare yourself for what Queenstown has in store.
And of course, we have a Tour Desk so that we can help you find the most suitable activity for you to fully experience the Adventure Capital of the World!
