Stayed here for 1 night in a double room! Nothing fancy, but the room was clean.
There is a good sized kitchen for cooking (with gas and sharp knives) and the building has a nice charm with the 'Harry Potter' theme.
It's a short (but steep) walk to town (5 mins). The walk home is more difficult as its straight up a hill.
The staff were friendly and helpful, pointing out interesting things to do on the map.
The place has a homely feel to it with a nice fire place in the dining area!
No car park is a bit of a downer, but there is street parking close by.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hogwartz is a Backpacker Hostel with a wide spectrum of room types. Budget travellers enjoy their shared rooms with up to six beds (no bunks) or the private rooms with shared facilities. For those who prefer a little bit more privacy and luxury, they have a beautifully rebuilt, self-contained cottage (the Coach House) available with two en suite rooms and a shared full kitchen. And at the top end of the spectrum, there are two stylish, fully self-contained studio rooms (the Stables) to spoil yourselves with. Per person prices range from $26 to $58 per night, and there is some complimentary wifi at fibre-optics speed. Located a short distance uphill from the city centre, Hogwartz is a hostel for grown-ups: it is not suitable for party crowds or for small children (minimum age 12years). Free car parking is available on surrounding streets, and the walk into the Octagon takes roughly 5min. There are no gimmicks, no false promises here, just genuine quality accommodation and service. ... more less
