The staff are really helpful and nice, and the location is pretty good - although in Queenstown, it feels like anywhere is going to be decent since it's such a tiny city center!
The kitchen is large, the rooms are just ok. Bathrooms are pretty tiny.
I did give it only three stars though, due to circumstances beyond the Lodge's control - there are very noisy neighbors who blast hideous reggae-remix crap music at incredible volumes all through the night - from about 11pm to 9am. If you're not going to be in the hostel during then that may not matter, and maybe they've moved since I stayed, but - not a wink of sleep when it was going on. Really bad. But, Queenstown itself is lovely!
