As we came to stay in this quite and nice place we really didn't acspect to feel the worse attitude we ever felt in new Zealand. The management staff was so in kind to us that we were so happy to finely leave that place. As you wake up in the morning and to check out at 1000 o'clock the...

We have stayed before and came back because of the beautiful views from the hostel over Lake Wakatipu and The Remarkables. We were not disappointed, the views from the common areas are something special. Hostel itself is good too, clean, homely and relaxed. The kitchen is a bit small, so in the "rush hour" around dinner time you may have...

We stayed over Christmas holidays and had a nice quiet day even though the hostel was fully booked. Jimmy the cat was a wonderful host while the office was closed for two days. He made us feel right at home.

We stayed here two times for respectively two nights and one night. The Hostel has a stunning view and the house is very comfortable. This place could be the perfect place, but the business policy and the manager are killing the whole experience. I know it is quite usual to pay for WiFi, but if I have to pay 5...

I stayed at the lodge for 2 nights in November. It is a short walk from the main town centre and totally worth it. The view from the deck is amazing. The house is cozy and quiet. Everything was clean and comfortable and the staff was kind and helpful. I would highly recommend staying here if you need a place...

Great view of lake wakatipu in front of the lodge. Room is great as no bunk bed for every room but do not get a room under the staircase as it will be very noisy when people walking or even running. Bathroom is big and clean with heater in it. Reception people is very helpful to help us with our...

We stayed at the Butterfli Lodge 3 days, 2 more than originally planned. There's nothing we could find to complain about. Extremely clean, comfortable rooms and modern showers, kitchen well equipped, great view of the lake from the living room and feels extremely homey and cozy. But most importantly, the staff - we had the pleasure of staying in the...

I stayed there quite a long time (over 1 month) in winter and the hostel itself is absolutely recommendable - stunning view of the Lake Wakatipu and The Remarkables, very cosy living room, everything clean, nice fireplace (although it was quite cold a few times when the Manager Cindy didn't want it to be going...), no bunk beds. But unfortunately...

We stayed at Butterfli Lodge for 6days in July. The Lodge itself was clean and comfortable and our room had a terrific view of the lake. The weekend manager Anna couldn't do enough for us and arranged some fantastic tours at great prices. The unfortunate fly in the ointment was the weekday manager Cindy. She made us feel uncomfortable and...

Butterflies123, Manager at Butterfli Lodge, responded to this review

I would like to take the opportunity to respond to this review. I remember your stay at Butterfli Lodge. As we are one of the smaller hostels in Queenstown and work with a small team, we start cleaning the hostel as soon as guests leave at check out time, 10am, allowing us to get everything done before new guests arrive...
