Adventure Q2 Hostel

The latest venture from the owners of Adventure Hostels New Zealand!

This centrally located and newly outfitted hostel is the “little sister” of the award-winning Adventure Queenstown Hostel. We aim to offer a homey atmosphere with a vibrant twist, and a high level of convenience, comfort, and personal attention for savvy travellers on a budget. Our hostel features beautifully furnished rooms, a brand new kitchen and lounge area, and all the best amenities – the stuff travellers really want. Our friendly staff is made up of fellow world travellers who are always willing to help out in any way possible. These lovely people are also in charge of our nightly hostel-run activities! Boredom will not be tolerated here at AQ2! With everything from pub crawls, to quiz night to BBQ night, we provide ample opportunities for our guests to join in and make new friends – there’s something for everyone at AQ2!

Employment Opportunities

So, you think you’ve got what it takes? We generally have teams of staff on board for a full summer or winter season, so it’s not very often a position becomes available. All our staff work part-time and tend to have a second paying job as well. While we usually invite people who are currently staying with us as guests to join our dynamic team, a well written email with well-presented CV attached has been known to catch our attention.

Tours & Activities around Queenstown

We aim to share our love of Queenstown with people of all ages from all over the world. Whatever the question, we will help! Take advantage of our tours and activities desk, our considerable local knowledge, and our travel experience. We love this place, and we aim to provide a truly memorable experience both of our hostel and of Queenstown. We are a full tour booking agency right here at AQ2 Hostel! We aim to make life easy for those adventurous (or no so adventurous) people out there by providing expert advice and bookings for any of the hundreds of different tours and activities in and around Queenstown. We have a lot of experience in booking packages for our guests and typically recommend for you to wait until you arrive to make bookings for all adventure activities. This is because when you arrive we can look at determining factors such as the weather, and provide better advice about which day to do which activity.
