Located fairly close to city centre. You have to go uphill a bit, but it's not too bad. I was dropped off here by airport shuttle, otherwise I would have struggled to find it.
Facilities: Excellent kitchen, common room, TV lounge. Comfortable bed with power plugs near by.
Atmosphere: Nothing special really. There are no organised social events or anything like that, but there are plenty of common areas to chat with other backpackers.
Overall a really good hostel to stay at, would recommend.
- 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
