Property Information:

The Empire is an old favourite amongst backpackers. We are located in the CENTRE of town, near the information centre (i-SITE) in the Historic (Victorian) Precinct. We are well-known for being clean, warm and friendly.

There are 2 lounges, one with a large screen TV and a log fire. We have heaters in the bedrooms and endless hot water. Other facilities include: 3 computers kiosks, WiFi (access via a hotspot), pool table, piano, off-street parking, and... a video library!

We are part of the Historic Precinct and a 15 minute walk to the Blue Penguin Colony. Make sure to visit Steampunk Headquarters and Annie's Victorian Tea Rooms - there is more to see in Oamaru than the guidebooks tell you.

We are surrounded by restaurants, cafes, bars, shops and close to a supermarket.

    I only stayed here for two nights, but I loved it Mandy the manager was so friendly and gave us the low down on when to see the penguins! And it was located in the centre of town, so everything was easily accessible. Definitely one of my favourite hostels.
