Stayed here in March 2012 for 2 nights in a double room and we were really surprised when we saw our room. Its on the lower level of the lodge with a door open to a patio with the wonderful view of Lake Wakatipu. We spend the whole afternoon there enjoying the view and breeze despite the cold weather imagine...

Good clean rooms. No en-suite but there was never a queue for the numerous clean shared facilities. Nice view of the lake. They can book your activities for you, and give free wifi if they do. Having stayed in a few hostels in NZ, this has been my favourite so far. I'd recommend it. It is about 5-10 mins walk...

Bed is comfy and warm. Room cost $68/night. There is a bathroom very near us and 2 more downstairs; shower and toilet together. Clean and quite...

First of all, I'm not a backpacker so it was with trepidation that I stayed at this place. New Zealand hotels are quite pricey so backpackers places were my only choice. To my surprise, this place is hardly a backpacker place. It is best described as a semi-homestay. There are shared rooms (no bunks) and single/doubles. For $62 I had...

Great location, & our triple room(double & 1 single) was very clean & comfy! Short walk to town away from the hustle & bustle of Queenstown. Staff not all that friendly. Kitchen busy! Remember to name & date all your food as they like throwing unmarked food out! We had our food unmarked & found it either in the bin...

We stayed for 4 nights at Butterfli Lodge. Very commercial orientated running hostel quite a walk to the heart of Queenstown, but with a nice view on the lake. Unfriendly staff, for the Internet they made me paying 5 NZ $ for 100 MB using my own Notebook. Rooms are simple, but very clean. Don´t get those rooms on the...
