The Butterfli Lodge is a hostel with a new kitchen, new bathrooms, a warm living room with enough space for everybody and above all a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. The view on the mountains is fantastic and the location good - within walking distance of the lively center with all its attractions of Queenstown.

What an amazing place! By far the best experience staying in Queenstown. Clean, calm, social and super friendly. Great wifi, rooms, beds, kitchen and the lake view is stunning. The receptionist Julien is very welcoming and helpful. Would highly recommend this to anyone just arriving in Queenstown.

Given how many hostels there are in Queenstown it can be hard to choose. I actually found the Butterfli Lodge somewhat by accident as they are not part of the network when you search through the conglomerate site linked through a Google search for "Queenstown Hostel." As everything else was booked I was lucky to find a room there. This...

Amazing place. Nice and small so very welcoming. Safe and secure and a great set of people. View is to die for and great prices. 10 minute walk to the city centre. Very clean and dorms are bunk free which is always a plus.

A great place with an amazing lookout on the lake and the mountains. It's very clean, with hot showers, and comfy living room. The kitchen is new, very functional, with everything you need (free coffee, tee, sugar, herbs, spices... ) . You really feel like home :)

Very friendly and welcoming. The room was very comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. The only down side was that you can hear from the down stairs floor foot steps from above. Very recommend. A beat far from the town center but not to much

This is a lovely little hostel, with a veranda looking over the beautiful lake of Queenstown. Ever since the manager took over it's getting prettier by the day. It's clean, has a well equipped kitchen and bathrooms and a comfortable couch corner where you can watch TV or simply enjoy the view of the lake. The team is very nice...

Really nice, quiet hostel in Queenstown with only 7 rooms. 10 min walk to the citycenter and 20min to the super market fresh choice. 2 mins to the beach. Have breakfast on the balcony with the best lake view and watch the boats go out in the morning or sit inside in the lounge and relax. Nicest manager on my...

We stayed for one night on a Saturday at Butterfli Lodge. We had a double room at the back of the house, overlooking the lake - stunning! You would normally pay a lot of money for a view like that, so we were very happy. The lodge itself was fine - probably just your typical backpackers place, nothing special. The...
