Chalet Backpackers Dunedin

...where our friendly staff help you to feel home away from home.

Built in 1904, our beautiful historic building began life as The Chalet Hospital, purpose built by two nurses, Mrs Church and Mrs Sutherland. Situated on a corner of High Street, this red brick building has an impressive appearance and amazing views over the city and harbour. The building opposite on Graham St matches the style of Chalet as it was the doctor's residence built around the same time.

In 1991, the building was converted to a backpackers and now accommodates up to 50 guests in single, double & twin rooms, share rooms or dorms. Much of its grandeur and character remain and it is currently under room-by-room renovation in-keeping with its heritage colours.
