6/10 Good

Basic but good
Reception was extremely friendly and helpful. Room is basic. Very dated but perfectly functional. Bunk beds with a short bottom bunk clearance so tall folk up top. Bathroom on the ground floor, rooms on the second. Kitchen is good.

A great place to stay !
A great place to stay...only 8-10 min walk into the hussle and bussle of Queenstown. We had a 1 bed lodge which was fitted out well and very comfortable. 2 supermarkets close to walk to. Friendly helpful staff.

You get what you pay for. It was cheap in comparison, however the bins weren't emptied and the floor as dirty.

For the younger generation. If you want a few comforts don’t book into shared accommodation. Booking into a chalet would be a totally different experience

I didn't stay on Tues 7 Feb, as it was a mix up with by booking back on 7 Jan when it looked looked like I was booking it for that night. I was wrong and did not get notification in time to do the actual booking

2/10 Poor

The facility lacks basics that were inconsistent with property description. I knew it would include a shared shower and toilet. I was pissed to have only 2 showers for roughly 20 people and one of the two shut off while I had shampoo in my hair and shut off during my husband's shower as well. This place has terrible lighting which was problematic as we arrived around 22:00. It was so hot and muggy with no fan to circulate air. The facility overall is very outdated which I ordinarily could care less about, but I wouldn't pay $30 to stay here let alone what I was charged. We stayed one night and then booked elsewhere, essentially ate the cost of the nights we did not stay. I have never done that before.

Pleasant stay, no issues (for us)
Pleasant stay, ensuites were fairly sized and lots of hot water. Room was spacious for a private double. Theres no air con or fan here however so be aware if you get hot warm easily. The TV is very old too, not an active smart tv from our experience with it. Whilst in Queenstown though a TV is not needed!
