Welcome to the Dunstan High School Hostel, Alexandra - Central Otago's only five and seven-day boarding hostel for Year 9 - Year 13.

The hostel is located at 99 Russell Street, just around the corner from the High School, and a 2-3 minute walk from the school grounds. It is a smaller, family-like hostel, with approximately 48 spaces for boys and girls.

Established over 45 years ago, we have been a home away from home for thousands of students from the surrounding area and further afield, helping them to achieve their academic, sporting and cultural goals and working with them to develop the social skills they need to thrive in whatever path they choose to take after their high school education.

For further information, or to request a viewing of the hostel and a meeting with the Director of Boarding, please contact the school office:
