BackpackerGuide.NZ

Budget accommodation in architectural Dunedin.

With gothic architectural marvels around every corner, you can bet that the backpacker accommodation is going to be different to elsewhere in New Zealand. There are historic homes converted into hostels, hostels with views of grand cathedrals, and even a hostel on a sheep farm. You’ll find some of the best around in this list of backpacker hostels in Dunedin.

For more information on budget accommodation in Dunedin, take a look at our Accommodation to Dunedin City Central and the Accommodation Guide to Dunedin. The budget-conscious backpacker can also look at ways to save money in Dunedin by reading: 12 Free or Cheap Things to Do in Dunedin.

1. Hogwartz

Hogwartz is New Zealand’s school for witchcraft and wizardry… It is also a backpacker hostel! The location is the main drawcard for this hostel looking out to St. Joseph’s Cathedral. The small, clean and sociable hostel is also located close to the city centre. Convenient!

Check Hogwartz out!

2. Manor House Backpackers

Two adjacent 1920s houses have been combined to make this homely backpacker hostel. There are rooms to suit most situations, whether its travellers, families or large groups. There is also a BBQ for use, a garden and an eco-boutique where you can pick up some free second-hand clothes.

3. Chalet backpackers

Stay the night in an old hospital! (Honestly, one of the rooms still has the sinks and the glass paneling when it was once used as a surgery). Today, the hostel just a short walk from the city centre is newly refurbished with a lot of charm. Make us of the pool table, free WiFi and cheapest bed prices in town (at time of writing)!

4. McFarmers Backpackers

If you have a car and are looking to get a bit off the beaten track, McFarmers is a cool and quirky hostel on the Otago Peninsula. This small accommodation on a sheep farm – a true New Zealand experience!

5. Central Backpackers

Exactly what it says on the tin: Central Backpackers is the most central hostel in Dunedin. It is recently renovated accommodation with free breakfast and WiFi.

6. On Top Backpackers

A purpose-built hostel close to Dunedin’s nightlife. This accommodation is “on top” of a pool bar, so you don’t need to travel far for evening entertainment. During the day, the pool bar does coffee, has cosy seats, and is where the free WiFi works best. Instead of corridors, expect to walk along a sun deck to get to your room.
