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.

    I talked to friends who stayed in other hostels and to sum it up: Best choice for a Hostel in Dunedin! Why? Because there was nothing to complain about. - the owners are very nice and always there to help you - the Kitchen ist big, clean and more then well equipped (also filtered drinking water) - bathrooms are very new and get cleaned every day - living room with a chill-out balcony ist very comfy Best of all: No bunkbeds. Big rooms with enough space and proper beds.

    Brilliant value for money. Great atmosphere very relaxed. Great location 10 minutes from center of town. Staff were great. Me and my mate stayed in dorms, beds good, bathrooms great. Just wish we had a locker or something to lock our stuff in nothing of ours was stolen however it’s nice to know that tour stuff is secure.

    Quiet hostel a few minutes walk from the octagon. On a steep hill, so a bit of a climb back to the hostel. Has a cool loft area with a comfy couch. Had the most comfortable bed I had during my time in New Zealand. No bunkbeds, which was a nice change. Has fast wifi, but not unlimited. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

    I came here from central backpackers and this place is so much nicer! Really central in town, just up a little hill. Staff were v friendly and really welcoming when I first arrived. Beds are single beds which are luxury after 6 months of bunk beds! I was in a 4 bed dorm with only 1/2 other people. The kitchen is fully equipt and so much better than the big commercial hostels like nomads/ base. There’s enough stuff for everyone and not over crowded. Only thing is WiFi isn’t in rooms. :)))

    We had a nice stay at Hogwartz. It was nicely located near downtown and it was easy to get to the peninsula and SH1. The rooms were quiet, showers and toilets nice and clean. Kitchen and eating area were also very functional and clean. You do have to take a steep walk to get to parking and to downtown which didn't bother us. The view from our room was beautiful looking towards a cathedral. The hostel itself is a "no frills kind of place. Functional, but not stylish. Good value for your money.
