Dan, the staff, was so friendly and energetic. He helped us to arrange booking activities and gave us some advice for travel. It was... More

Aspen lodge is not in the centre but not too far from it. clean bed and friendly staffs are the thing you can expect. i stayed in room 2 (dormitory) at downstair but the kitchens are upstairs. if you are driving, there are plenty of parking along roadside.

We were looked after straight away and were immediately put at ease by the friendly and attentive service. Our private room with ensuite bathroom was very spacious and was situated in a... More

We came to Queenstown without any plans and decided to stay for a night. The first hostel we were recommended was Aspen Lodge. It was a real surprise. We got a really nice double room with beautiful view. We had to share the bathroom only with guests in the next double room. Had a great night in a quiet location.... More

Excellent stay here. Great value, really tidy with great facilities and a very central location. The staff are very friendly and helpful too. Rooms are very comfortable and the showers are super! Nice and relaxed atmosphere in common rooms and lockers to store bags when you check out.

This is probably the best hostel we stayed in in our year travelling in NZ, we had a nice double room with a great view, bathroom straight across from us and a nice quiet and clean kitchen and living area next to us that felt like having our own apartment. Good value and highly recommended.

My friend and I stayed here for a week in February and couldn't have asked for a better experience! It was more personalized than staying at one of the larger hostels and everyone was extremely friendly and helpful, including Dan who was fantastic. Very funny guy and he had a lot of great recommendations for us of what to do... More
