Property Description

Hippo Lodge is a friendly and affordable hostel with an amazing, elevated view of Queenstown, from the side of Queenstown Hill, facing Lake Wakatipu and The Remarkables mountain range. Walk to town in only a few minutes and enjoy all of the region's best offerings, just be prepared for the short but steep ascent back!

We offer a mix of private rooms and mixed dorms, all of which feature views of the mountains, lake or garden. Guests have access to a fully-equipped shared kitchen and a communal lounge with TV.

We offer free WiFi and free (but limited) parking.

Very Good
Nov 07, 2022
A nice place just ruined by potheads that don’t clean up after themselves. Leave everything dirty, and unusable for the next person. First room I was in smelt like feet and weed, second was actually nice and had decent people. But other than that, staff is great, really look after you, AMAZING views from the hostel. Just not great people. But not the hostels fault.
