Old & Dated ......but could be made warm & nice .
I prepaid in advance by weeks.I also emailed the Hotel requesting a good room on level 2. I was given the worst one which had strong foul smell and dirty carpets .I requested a change next day which fell on deaf ears of the rude , stocky male clerk . Apart from this , I enjoyed my first time visit to Dunedin .

Very run down
Very run down, we had a room with no heating apart from a small electric heater. No heating at all in the bathroom and single glazed. The bunk bed wobbled around a lot. The toilet door would not open if the toilet seat was down, the bathroom was that small. Overall it was not worth the money.

Super location, character filled clean hotel!
Fabulous hotel! Enjoyed our stay here and even booked longer. Hotel is dated but that is part of the character, it is clean and well kept. Some beautiful rooms to sit and read in. Bedroom, was a backpacker room so bunk beds, the room was a bit small and nowhere to put stuff but for the price and location you can't go wrong! Bathroom was massive, clean and hot water. The bar and food; the food was delicious! Great prices and sizes, super cold beer at fab prices! Friendly and attentive staff, always willing to help. Perfection location! Highly recommend!

Ideal to walk into the main area but located on a main road you could hear the lorries and coaches rumbling past from early morning.

Nice central place to stay!
The Leviathan is a friendly and convenient place to stay in Dunedin. Walking distance of the Octogon and free parking for guests! The decor is dated but in good condition. You need to check your door is shut properly or it swings open and makes you think there is ghosts! :D (that’s my issue not theirs though!)
