There is a few things you should know about Oamaru hostels and the city in general. Besides comparing you the best and cheapest hostels in Oamaru, we also highlight what we have liked, disliked and things to look out for.Visiting Oamaru is like taking a step -- or two -- back in time. The first thing that strikes you about the city is its beautiful, rather grandiose nineteenth-century architecture. One of the most eye-catching buildings there is the Oamaru Opera House, where local and world-renowned operas, musicals, and other theatre acts are showcased. Be sure to visit it at night, for that's when it is lit up beautifully. For those who are enamoured of such architecture, take a walk down the Victorian Precinct to check out more of these old buildings, which also house shops, cafes, and galleries.
