Pavlova Palace

A ‘sweet as’ backpackers in Dunedin

Welcome to Pavlova Palace, Dunedin’s best budget backpacker accommodation

Pavlova Palace (previously Elm Lodge), is one of Dunedin’s central city backpackers and Youth Hostels, offering a range of homely and affordable budget accommodation choices. Located only 650m from the central CBD with panoramic views of the City, Otago Peninsula and St Clair Beach. The Pavlova Palace team are passionate about sharing New Zealand food, arts, music, sports and culture, which feature strongly throughout our hostel.

Dunedin City itself offers an array of this culture for backpackers to explore.

The Octagon is in the heart of the city centre, steeped in history with St Pauls Cathedral, The Dunedin Town Hall and Regent Theatre.  A great selection of restaurants and bars gives the Octagon and the city a distinct european feel.

Our goal is to consistently go over and above your expectations providing guests a ‘sweet as slice’ of hospitality.

“I was warmly greeted and felt immediately at home at this lovely lodge. I especially enjoyed the spa pool! The friendly host, Matt, let me know all the best spots in Dunedin so I really got to know the city well too!”
