the people are not among the friendliest. guests not allowed on property. while its understandable as keeping the place safe, really not as pleasant...as you can see from the reviews of some other users. I agree with them that the service really could improve, but wouldn't complain too much given the price anyway.

I chose Alpine Lodge on the basis that it is one of the smallest hostels in Queenstown. Small, it may be, but it is typically grubby and noisy. I was in a private room next to the bathroom. Guests were showering well into the wee hours of the morning. One going for an obligatory vomit after having too much to... More

Stayed here during our first visit at Queenstown during a winter festival back in 2008. It's a typical backpacker accommodation with shared everything except for the room we got. Our double room however was not good. The bed wasn't comfortable, the room is tidy as it can be but old and run down. They have breakfast which consist of cereals... More

I'm usually never pointing any bad things about hostel because there are always bad points and good points. Being perfect is something not possible. I'm a very easygoing person and not difficult when it comes to stay somewhere.. BUT that place ! I'm going to take 10 minutes of my time to let a review because i've had the worst... More

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
