Liked: -Ubicacion genial: a diez minutos caminando desde la ciudad y ubicado sobre las colinas al final de una calle, lo cual lo hace hermoso-Diferente de otros hostels para mejor!, ya que tiene diferentes unidades (tipo departamentos) ubicados en el complejo, donde en mi caso compartia el cuarto con dos personas mas, y en nuestro "departamento" habia dos cuartos mas-Las instalaciones estan muy bien, hay dos banios por departamento y cada uno tiene una cocina para compartir con tus housemates. -En recepcion son muy amables y hasta se ocuparon de llamar a la aerolinea por mi. -La verdad disfrute mucho hospedandome alli, y solo pague 2 dolares mas que en un hostel normal, realmente vale la pena!

Disliked: El wifi es gratis pero no funciona desde los departamentos

Liked: I always say the people make the hostel, this was very true at pinewood. Free trampoline, free internet (only really works outside reception). There was also a TV in our living area but the TV remote was missing so we could only watch one channel.

Disliked: 2 plug sockets hidden behind a bed in a room of 6 people! No soap de spencer in the bathroom. Cleaners don't bother wiping down the table or use any cleaning products other than water from what I've witnissed. However with all these little things the place grows on you and you start calling it home

Liked: Great location, walking distance to everything you need. Wonderful staff on the counter. Apartment could have been a little bit cleaner. Our room was tidy and well presented however. Overpriced of course, but this is on par with the rest of Queenstown.

Liked: Pinewood Lodge is close to town. There is so much to do there and the people that were staying at the lodge were great.

Disliked: There could have been more plugs in the dorm room.

Liked: Easy

Disliked: No mirrors in bedroom. Which means waiting for the shared bathroom and/or using up bathroom time to do makeup/hair which could be done in bedrooms

Liked: We lived in a double room and share kitchen and bathroom with another room only. It is the shared bathroom is not with a number of people.

Disliked: The location is a bit far from the city center and walk to there with lauggage is not very easy.
