Chalet Backpackers

The red brick building with all its grandeur originates from 1904. It was purposely built by two nurses (Mrs Church and Mrs Sutherland) as the private Chalet Hospital.

In 1991 it was converted to the Chalet Backpackers which can accommodate up to 30 guests in single, double & twin rooms, 3 or 4 bed share rooms or 5-6 bed dorms. All beds are fully made up.

We provide free unlimited WiFi, along with tea and coffee, and a pool table for your enjoyment. There is a 5-star kitchen and we recycle glass, plastic, cardboard, newspaper, cans and turn foodscraps into compost.

You can relax in our sunny backyard garden with a book, a cigarette or a glass of wine.

All this within a short walk to the city centre.
Enjoy a home away from home.
