WELCOME TO HOGWARTZ

Built in the late 1800s and added to with much taste over the centuries, the impressive bluestone building once named "Rockmount" is now home to Dunedin's top-rated backpacker hostel featuring 17 comfortable guest rooms not only for the weary traveler, but also for visitors to the Otago University, cyclists of the Otago Rail Trail or even business people who prefer the sociable, relaxed environment of a backpacker hostel to a sterile hotel room.

The Catholic bishop's residence since the 1870s, this beautiful old building has now been converted into a wonderfully complicated warren of comfortable rooms and 'projects', such as a mezzanine in the dining room and a bathroom in a corridor. The five-bed dorm, the bishop's old formal dining room, would almost certainly be the grandest dorm room you have ever stayed in...
