I stayed at 2 hostels during my short stay in Queenstown, and loved Butterfli lodge! About a 10 minute walk off the main drag (but really, the entire town is tiny anyways). Had a lovely quiet welcoming atmosphere with a gorgeous view. I stayed in the 4 bed dorm, and it was wonderful, lots of outlets, and 2 clean bathrooms...

Stayed for 2 nights in a double room. Great views comfy bed plenty of showers usual vibe for a hostel. 10 minutes walk into town but very steep going back but around $7 taxi back well worth it!! We never cooked so can't comment otherwise we had a good stay. We chose here because more quieter than the ones in...

Without doubt one of the best views from any accommodation I've stayed in and a great location, just a short 10-15 minute stroll into town. There's quite a steep walk back up to the lodge so if you have any mobility issues this may not be the place for you. The room was adequate and bathrooms clean. The walls, however,...

Butterfli Lodge is within easy walking distance of the town, although it is an uphill walk back. The panorama from the balcony is stunning with wonderful views of the lake and mountains. The rooms are spacious and clean with comfortable beds, and the lounge and kitchen area is large with plenty of intensive at hand. Highly recommended.

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 :)
