We have the best views in town, only five minutes from town centre.
Our small, friendly hostel with fabulous views can transform your stay from a good one to a great one! We don't accept coach tours so there's no big groups of people, only individual travellers enjoying an experience they'll never forget.
All our beds are fully made-up with fresh linen and cosy duvets.
We have Internet, cheap Wi-Fi, laundry, a drying room for skiers and boarders and free storage when you go on hikes. We've got three kitchens and three communal lounge areas, mostly overlooking Lake Wakatipu and the mountains beyond.
The lodge itself is centrally heated for those crisp winter nights and we have picnic tables and a barbeque to cook your summer meals. (Don't worry - we have a fully-equipped kitchen too!)
We're on a quiet street, only five minutes up the hill from the centre of town and are close to shops, supermarkets, pubs, restaurants, and many attractions. Breathtaking walks are only a step away from our door. The airport is also only 10 minutes away.
So why not come see for yourself? When you're here we can help organise your activities for you. Be sure to book online because being small we book up fast!
We look forward to welcoming you to Hippo Lodge. Until then - happy travels!
