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.
Since 10th March 2016 Surat Bay Lodge is now under new Ownership. While the Lodge is still open as usual during the winter months, we will be making much needed updates to the Lodge ready for Summer 16/17. We promise it will be bigger, better and much more accommodating for our guests needs!
Please Note: We do not have mobile phone reception in the area. Wifi and a landline phone for local calls are available for your use.
