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...

Really helpful host who new her stuff about the local area. The rooms and bathrooms were lovely. The whole hostel was immaculate. Great location, quiet and only a ten minute walk into town. Enough free parking opposite if car park was full.

We had a wonderful experience staying at this hostel. The entire place was very clean - room, kitchen, bahtroom and common areas. The hall was nice and warm (we were there during winter), no to mention the presence of Jimmy, the sweetest lapcat in the world! He lets you cuddle him and may even fall asleep on your lap...aww. We...

My partner and I stayed in a double room for one week. The staff are friendly and very accommodating. Cindi, the manager, always has the log fire going to keep it warm and keeps the place spotless! The entire place was so comfortable and clean - the bedroom, kitchen, lounge and bathrooms. The views of the lake and mountains are...

I stayed for a few nights in a private double room which was one of the best I have experienced at hostel level. It was more like staying in a home rather than a hostel. My spotless room was situated downstairs and was beautifully furnished and decorated, with large doors opening onto the patio area giving stunning views over the...

Stayed here for 3 nights last Dec with my hubby. Our room wasn't facing the lake but we weren't particular about it. We usually had meals at the balcony area where we could eat and enjoy the scenery at the same time. The common bathroom and kitchen were clean. We drove around in Queenstown. If you don't intend to rent...

A group of four of us (two couples) stayed in the Butterfli Lodge in mid January for 7 nights. It was a wonderful experience. The quality of the room we stayed in was amazing for the price. The double room that we stayed in had an amazing view across the Lake to the Remarkables. It was a small room and...
