The owner went out of his way to make us feel welcome. We ended up taking his advise on heading out to the local haunts around town and it possibly was the best night out we have ever had. If you are looking for good value, clean, friendly place to stay then look no further you have found it.

This has probably been the worst hostel I have been in.. and I have seen a lot. The location is pretty alright and the hostel isn't particularly dirty or anything but it is just not a welcoming inviting place. The owner of this place is just incredibly rude. First of all you get chucked out of the bottom lounge and... More

This backpacker is a good place to stay. First thing I have to say : it is VERY clean (guys from the reception clean several times per day the kitchens and lounges). We stayed two nights downstairs and then moved upstairs for an other couple of nights. Upstairs there is only two rooms (one*6 beds dorm and one double bedroom),... More

The one good thing I will say about the hostel is that the staff keep the place very clean! The problem is that the staff are incredibly horrible and rude about it. Below are just a few reasons why you should stay somewhere else. - You get woken up 10am everyday with a vacuum cleaner and the window opened, letting... More

Myself and my boyfriend stayed at Alpine Lodge for a week and it's not a bad hostel at all, apart from the terrible customer service. We stayed in a six bed dorm next to the quiet room which meant we had a good sleep. The lounge downstairs is cozy with a log burner and comfortable sofas. With it only being... More

The place is not bad, they have a quiet floor (which was comfortable) and a non quiet floor (which really sucked), enough bathrooms and kitchens, room was clean, bed average. BUT the staff is not there to help, more to make your stay miserable. The worst example: turning the light off in the room we were reading in, whereas it... More

I've stayed in this backpacker for 2 nights in the 6 bed dorm. The price is ok for what you get. A clean bed and clean showers. The common area is a bit small for my taste with the tv loud most of the times. But the staff could be a bit more friendly.. that you don't wanna get up... More

Alpine Lodge in Queenstown was a great experience. We booked a double room for 3 nights. Upon check-in, the staff was extremely helpful in booking all of our plans during our time in Queenstown. If you get the chance, I recommend the Juicy Tours Milford Sound cruise. He was also very helpful in telling us the best sights and places... More

I really enjoyed my time here. The staff were very friendly and helpful in informing me and my friends of the best activities to do/ not to do, best places to go/not to go ect. The hostel was extremely clean. There were nice areas to relax and even a quiet lounge witch I think is a excellent idea. The location... More

Such a great place to stay at..... the first thing that struck my eye was how close the hostel is to the gondola a 1 minute bike ride and a full view of the gondola carts climbing the mountain everyday : ) I was greeted by the staff member Tom who is also keen Mountain biker and he showed me...
