“Nice place for what you pay, but very cold in winter.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014

I stayed there with my friend for a couple of weeks. This hostel is very particular as its divided in small houses, each with indiviadual kitchens. There are a lot of parking slots, the hostel is very clean and the kitchens are just ok. Its close to the city center and its not very expensive (145 for a 4 bed).

I did have a bad experiece with one of the staff girls that clened the place at morning. Someone was not doing their dishes and one of the morning she interogated us about it, asking three times if we were the ones that didnt do the dishes. Next day a very rude sign appeared on the fridge, which you can see on the review photo. The rest of the stafff was very friendly... but avery one in our complex was really upset about that experience... so just wanted to share it.

Its VERY cold, imagine that our olive oil got frozen after we left it inside the kitchen. So, you can tell...

Room Tip: Complex M is very nice, but kitchen is small. L is good too.

The only positive thing about this hostel was the weekly winter rate of $140. For Queenstown in winter season this is really cheap.
However, you get almost nothing for your money, except the bed of course.
We stayed in a quite small six bed dorm. The beds were relatively comfortable, but there's not much space to put your stuff.
The room hasn't been cleaned once during our entire stay, bins haven't been emptied. Bathroom (by the way, two showers and two toilets for the whole apartment complex of about 24 people), common and kitchen could be a lot cleaner, too. The kitchen is extremely poor equipped, you get plates and cups, and if you're lucky you find a small pan but that's it.
The staff at reception was either extremely arrogant or had no clue about anything. Not helpful or welcoming at all.
It could maybe be nice in summer, as there is a big outside barbecue area.
The hostel is located at a hill about 10 to 15 min. walking distance to the city.
Normally we are not the type of people to complain about free wifi...but if the free wifi is never working, why bother even offering it?!
I've stayed in worse hostels but also in far better ones.
Wouldn't necessarily recommend it, but it was the cheapest one in QT.

The Backpacker consists of several small houses with comfortable rooms and own lounge area and kitchen. Great location, just next to the Gondola and only a few minutes to the center. You will have a great view overlooking the city! Highly recommended!

Made our booking last minute and was well impressed with the price! We had our own house which was great. Besides the two bedrooms and bathroom, it had a large lounge area and a kitchen/dining room with all the appliances we needed to prepare our own meals. The highlight of staying here was the helpful staff at reception. We were able to book all of our activities (often with special deals) and they really knew their stuff! Gave great recommendations and made it all very easy. Thank you!! Would highly recommend and would definitely stay here again

Booked Pinewood lodge on price. But received much more for what my group was paying. Friendly and helpful reception. Warm and comfortable rooms, The lodge is clean and quiet and is close to all the attractions Queenstown has to offer. I Highly recommend Pinewood lodge to everyone, and I would definitely be staying here in the future.

Just reserved this because of the price, boy was I glad. Huge property, friendly/helpful/efficient staff, AND it's right next to the Gondola/Sky Luge and tracks up onto Lomond Peak. Highly recommended. If I come to Queenstown I will stay here again.
