Property Description

You will find a restful, good night's sleep here at Hogwartz Backpackers and Studios! None of the impressively spacious bedrooms have more than six beds (no bunks!), offering guests loads of personal space and our private rooms range from single, twin, double to triple rooms and even for parties of four. All our rooms feature made up beds, individual reading lights, heaters and extra blankets (and extra pillows on request) and the mattresses are of hotel quality, and so are the cozy fresh sheets and duvets.

The probably most highly praised features of this up-market backpacker hostel, are its bathroom facilities. All of our many toilets and showers have undergone extensive renovations, and the latest European-style upgrades boast such luxuries as rain showers, under-tile heating and automatic lighting.

    Really good place. It was fun and had good staff. Interesting building too. Had a nice view because it was up a hill. Lots of parking.

    Had a great stay! Staff were very friendly, common room was very comfy and warm and kitchen was huge! Uphill from the Octogon so easy walk down, and easy to walk off whatever dessert was had on the way back up!

    Incredibly clean hostel and comfy beds. Best sleep I've had in a while. Feels like a big home and the owners are there keeping up the standards. Could do more with the Hogwartz theme, both otherwise and excellent stay.

    Very clean, great bathrooms/showers and kitchen. Feels spacious and cozy. Super quiet when I was there but it’s the off-season. Would stay again!

    Enjoyed our stay at Hogwartz. Atmosphere is hit or miss, but managed to meet some cool people along the way. Great location close to town. Be prepped for loads of hills, but that's Dunedin for you. Very cozy, but pretty small common areas. Kitchen was nice but could be cramped at times. Wifi was a bit frustrating - slow and only worked in the small common area. Other than that, I'd stay there again for sure!

    Our stay at hogwartz was okay for a private room it was spacious. The shower didn’t work very well though and Wifi only worked in specific parts of the hostel. Staff were friendly and helpful :) hogwartz was a little difficult to find around the small steep roads however it’s a good walking distance from the town centre.

    This place has its problems but is still great and I would stay there again, the rooms really need lockers, I travel around with expensive camera gear I couldn’t leave it behind and had to take it everywhere with me for this reason, it is a lovely old home and is a bit different from your standard backpackers, also no parking
