Taking advantage of Kingston's backpacker options is a great way to socialise before moving on and exploring the entire country on a budget. Backpacker accommodation is friendly, communal and reliable. They are places where, usually, young travellers congregate and often make friends with people of different nationalities. It's the most fun way to discover everything this country has to offer and meet like-minded travellers. New Zealand backpacker accommodation is considered to be of a consistently high quality. Most backpacker accommodation throughout the country offers a mixture of shared rooms (dormitories), as well as single, twin or double rooms for a higher (but still relatively cheap) cost. The facilities usually consist of a communal kitchen and bathroom, and a coin-operated laundry, although this does vary - many also have internet access, bars and TV lounges. Long-term rates are usually offered for those planning to stay awhile.
Kingston is situated at the southern tip of Lake Wakatipu. Kingston was once a major transit link for goldfields in the region. Kingston accommodation includes self-contained motel units, cabins, kitchen cabins and power sites.
