Location

Dunedin, Otago, New Zealand

Our hostel is located in a residential area and just a 5 minute walk away from the very centre of town (ok, on the way back maybe 7 minutes, because, yes, Dunedin is hilly! ;)). And for beer lovers, good news, it is just 2 minutes away from the Speight's brewery!

I have always loved travelling, exploring new countries and meeting people from across the world. Swiss-born and bred, I arrived in NZ with my backpack some 20 years ago and was lucky enough to find my Kiwi hubby who used to do tour driving around Europe and NZ. After travelling around the South Island together in our mobile home for a couple of years, we set up Hogwartz Backpacker Hostel and Studios in Dunedin where we are still based today. I love animals, and I enjoy taking our dog on my SUP for a quiet glide or ride my motorbike to clear out the cobwebs.
