Well it was 4th year running for Nomads Queenstown in the annual Golden Backpack Awards this year. We won in the category of Best Hostel in New Zealand again!
What's really special about this particular award is that it's our past guests who voted for us! Winning this Award for the 4th year in a row really does say a lot about this special place and our wonderful team.
I'd personally like to thank all of the staff at Nomads Queenstown, for helping to make our hostel even better. We always feel proud of our hostel every day we come to work, not only do we have a great location and spectacular views but we have great facilities too.
The whole team look forward to putting on another great year of service to our amazing guests and showing all of the newcomers who stay with us over the next 12 months just exactly why we have been voted number 1 hostel in New Zealand for the last 4 years running!
- Andre, General Manager Nomads Queenstown.
So what are the Golden Backpack Awards?
"During a nine-week online campaign, backpackers voted for their favourite Hostel and Tour/Activity in every state and territory in Australia and across the Tasman for the New Zealand awards.
National awards recognised tour operators, transport providers and car/campervan rental companies while the general category saw awards for best travel agent, recruitment service, website and indigenous experience.
Almost 94,000 votes have been recorded from 23,000 individual voters with one award category receiving a whopping 2,400 votes alone." - Backpacker Trade News
Every year an awards ceremony is held in Sydney, where many of the finalists enjoy a night of networking, chatting, drinking, being entertained and of course finding out who all the winners are!
This year was another great ceremony, thanks TNT!
