“Just Okay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

This place is an easy walk into town but far enough away to be quiet. Not sure what value to expect, for $120 we got a small room with a double and single bed and an en suite. Shared kitchen facilities. It wasn't bad but it is missing those little things that make all the difference. It wasn't that clean.
The cleaners didn't clean our room, I assume it's because we were staying on so they didn't bother.

There are elaborate instructions for turning on the tele and two remotes to do so but we still couldn't make it go.

The reception staff are helpful, there us a spa for free use with a great view and a laundry you can pay to use, $10 for laundry powder, wash and dry. Also it didn't feel crowded and was quiet which was nice.

Overall not a bad place, would just be so much better if they cleaned it well, aired out the musty smell in the rooms and got t.v.'s that worked.

Well, it didn't work at all in my room. And, I was told that it was only for 20 minutes. Quite pissed me off since the other websites that I went to when booking didn't mention this - only that it was free.

My partner and I stayed in a standard double room and was what I expected for budget room. Nothing flashy just what you need for a place to get your head down after a day out and about around Queenstown.

We stayed in the lodge and had nice clean, tidy rooms with Comfortable beds. Toilet & shower areas are also very clean and had the best hot water pressure. Staff were also very friendly and helpful. Will happily stay again.

Stayed at this hostel for a few nights and I really, really enjoyed it!
The staff was great, very helpful and friendly. The buildings and facilities were clean and in general really nice. Perfect location, close to the city center, it was less than a five minute walk.

Awesome.

Te place is huge and if for BBQ is good and spacy. The staff is friendly and helpful although when talking to the phone they hours at least say hello.
Some rooms stink like moist and humidity.

It is 10 min from downtown but it is OK. I could come here again.
