Wow, the double room was huge! And the hostel was really close to the Octagon (city centre) and the staff were awesome and friendly. Bit odd that we could not do our own washing... the free wifi worked sometimes, most of the time the voucher...More

Enjoyed my stay. Dorm rooms were spacious and no bunks which was nice. No lockers or room keys but didn't have any issues. Unique look for a hostel as it's in a funky older house. I booked over the phone and staff helped me arrange...More

Thank you for your review! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay! We are located right opposite the catholic church St. Joseph on Rattray Street, and yes, a bit hidden behind bushes, but our signposts should lead the way :).

About
Description
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 ...More 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 $24 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.
