Well.... having to change our plans unexpectedly meant we had to locate somewhere to stay at short notice in a very busy Queenstown during peak season. This was our choice for $31 a night each - for a 6 person dorm. Not ideal but as I stated not much else available. We rang, we booked, we mentioned our arrival time,... More

Was here for one night. Room was lovely and female staff! However I found the manager was rude as he talked over you and not friendly when explaining hostel rules. When I didn't know you can't be in the kitchen a certain hour upstairs due to cleaning, he said it states this on the wall. You did not feel relax... More

Big thank you to Dan and all the staff at Alpine Lodge. Very welcoming and went above and beyond from the start. Friendly family atmosphere in the hostel. Room easily assessable for separate outside staircase which I found helpful. Clean and tidy room. Stayed 4 nights and would certainly stay again as long as these guys are taking care of... More

Just stayed here for a week whilst getting jobs & long term accommodation sorted in queenstown - Tom who runs it is super friendly and helpful. Warm fire, relaxed atmosphere and great value if you stay on a weekly rate. Free (fast!) wifi and bedrooms/bathrooms/kitchen all clean and decent. Would highly recommend and would stay again

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
