Surat Bay Lodge

Our friendly hostel is situated in New Haven on the edge of the Catlins Estuary right next to a beautiful beach (Surat Bay) inhabited by native New Zealand Sea Lions.

This is a spectacular and inspiring place to base yourself for a few days, and experience one of New Zealand's finest natural havens of wonderful scenery and wildlife in its native environment.

We are 5 kilometres from Owaka (the main town in the Catlins) and off the Southern Scenic Route that runs between Te Anau, Invercargill and Dunedin.

We are a Budget Backpacker Hostel - the largest hostel network, currently over 325 hostels, in New Zealand - and we offer guaranteed prices for BBH Club Card members.
