Property Information:

Our small, friendly hostel with fabulous views can transform your stay from a good one to a great one! We don't accept coach tours so there's no big groups of people, only individual travellers enjoying an experience they'll never forget.

All our beds are fully made-up with fresh linen and cosy duvets.

We have Internet, cheap Wi-Fi, laundry, a drying room for skiers and boarders and free storage when you go on hikes. Weve got three kitchens and three communal lounge areas, mostly overlooking Lake Wakatipu and the mountains beyond.

The lodge itself is centrally heated for those crisp winter nights and we have picnic tables and a barbeque to cook your summer meals. (Don't worry - we have a fully-equipped kitchen too!)

Were on a quiet street, only five minutes up the hill from the centre of town and are close to shops, supermarkets, pubs, restaurants, and many attractions. Breathtaking walks are only a step away from our door. The airport is also only 10 minutes away.

So why not come see for yourself? When youre here we can help organise your activities for you. Be sure to book online because being small we book up fast!

We look forward to welcoming you to Hippo Lodge. Until then - happy travels!

    Really nice hostel with great staff, one of the best in NZ. Beautiful views over the town and lake, partly cus it's up a massive hill which is a bit of a nightmare! Still close to town though. Free parking, very good communal areas; particularly the outdoor bits including the BBQ terrace. Excellent kitchen, showers & toilets and comfy beds. Wifi is ok, but only a small allowance is free.
