Property Description

FREE, full speed, UNLIMITED WiFi for all guests :)

One of Queenstown's smallest hostels (26 guests), Alpine Lodge is a great base for all your fun times in the adventure capital of the world. And with only a short, 1 min flat walk to the center of town, you are close to everything but far enough from the busy bustle of town.

All our dorm rooms contain 6 beds and are made up with a thick duvet (no sleeping bags needed here). Doubles and twins are also made up and towels are supplied .We provide Free, full speed and unlimited WiFi to all guests, which is available everywhere the entire property. Alpine Lodge has two separate Lounge/kitchen areas. One (TV lounge) with large movie selection and a toasty fire in the winter. The other a quiet reading area for those who wants some peace and quiet.

Positioned on the city end of Gorge Road, opposite the recreation ground, Alpine Lodge is a 1 min, flat walk to town and 3 min, flat walk from the supermarket. The closest ski field, The Coronet Peak is a 15 min drive from here.

Excellent hostel. Great location, very quiet, clean, well organized kitchen. Owner easy to reach. The only reason for a rate of 4 and not 5 is because it needs ti be upgraded which the owner has started to do.
