I don't know what all of the good reviews are about. We booked one bedroom in a 3 bedroom cabin for three nights and didn't get one nights sleep. The walls were so thin you could hear the people in the cabin next door use the microwave. The floorboards are so loud if someone walks next door you can hear...

just stayed 3 terrible nights at this place- feels like its stuck in 1970 - hideous decor in very scruffy condition and our room stunk! some noisey plumbing in the wall would have kept us awake but we were already awake from the slamming doors and crashing about from our fellow guests! It felt dirty - only suitable for drunk...

We stayed here as Queenstown was busy. Initially I was put off by the backpacker image but we stayed in an en-suite room and we had a good room with comfortable beds and good shower. We had no problem with any noise as i am a light sleeper. I think it is luck as you can stay in a 5...

this was our base for our Gold Duke of Edinburgh walks in New Zealand. We stayed here with a group of 19 consisting of 2 teachers, 14 students and 3 parents. Students stayed in dorm rooms whilst teachers and parents stayed in 1 bedroom self contained units. Accommodation was very clean and comfortable and an easy walk to supermarkets and...

This is the most terrible place where I' vet ever been in my intire life. The noise is umberable and the people has no respect at all for the other guests. You can' t sleep at night, as simple as that. It' s expensive and the wifi does'n work. Save your money and do not come here!

I knew when booking that this place wouldn't be luxury accommodation, but I was expecting a little more than what was offered. It all just seems very dated, tired and not overly clean. Staff were nice enough, but would have rather spent the extra $40-50 on something a little more tidy.

Initially we booked a "Spike" Cabin. We could not check in until 1.5 hrs after normal check in time. When we got there we could tell they rushed it. It was not very clean. The pullout couch did not have new linens and was dirty. This place is small. Bathrooms incredibly small. Not recommended for 2 adults with grown kids....

Overcharged credit card x 3 for very poor accommodation. In the process of retrieving the x 2 overcharge. Book ahead at somewhere else, pay the extra, and don't bother with this sub standard, overpriced establishment.

It is good clean and good environments but too noisy at nights , even up to 5 a.m some people are talking and laughing loudly, I couldn't sleep normally. There isn't something to get help and go up the second bed and it makes guests potentially in danger , especially at nights. Thanks

ATTENTION QUEENSTOWN WORKERS! Searching for a long room in Queenstown? Do yourself a favour and cross this one off the list! You will be messed around. You will end up living in a landfill with no light, a bedroom with no floor space and a bathroom with more mildew than running water! There will be someone you don't know passed...
