Aspen Lodge in Queenstown has all you want. Great staff that always help you with your questions. Its a friendy and cosy place close to Fesh Choise supermarket and it takes just 3 minutes to walk to the town centreYou will for sure find some funny people to hang around with. I had my best week ever at Aspen Lodge when I stayed there in february 2012. Staying in the 8 bed room with ensuit bathroom was the best room.

enjoyed my stay there welcoming staff and good place to hang out. Good distance from town centre not too close so disturbed by noise but close enough to nip to go to a bar or shop.

This week we've had a bus pass which allows us unlimited travel to the surrounding areas. We've spent a few days there; swimming in the river, panning for gold, walking in the hills, eating steak and yummy award-winning ice creams and enjoying the atmosphere of the quaint historical village with its old miners huts and Victorian Main Street. …

Yesterday we went up the skyline gondola to start a walk up from the top over to the summit of Ben Lohmond. Up there we had really nice views over the lake which is unnaturally blue due to glacier waters and 'rock flour' sifting through the water. An …

Wow. What an amazing place! Fit for Queen Victoria... The reason why it's called Queenstown. And fit for other famous people too. One of the first things we heard on entering the town was that Daniel Craig and Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were all staying in town on their holidays! I went a bit crazy at first at the prospect of being in the same …

... along the length of the South island to reach a busy city. I make a quick phone call to the YHA at Mt. Cook which is about an hour east of Lake Pukaki and book myself in for one night there.

As I drive north-east along the Lake towards Mt Cook town, I can feel the mountains and the lake forming a beautiful silhouette that one can see in any picture postcard. But I can't see it as it's past sun down and obviously quite dark.

... I thought about doing it, but we are glad we did not. Both hostels we have stayed at so far had the Kiwi Bus stop there for the night too, and thirty to forty young, mostly English and German, backpackers shared the hostel with us and we found them to be loud, immature, and a bit obnoxious. No offense to English and Germans though; we’ve met plenty of cool English and German people, it’s just I think that form of traveling is not our thing.
