Haka Lodge is located in a suburban neighbourhood in Christchurch; we have great eateries, supermarkets within walking distance and handy public buses to the central city, amazing beaches and the airport. We offer a range of accommodation options from dorm beds, double rooms and twin room as well as our two bed roomed self contained apartment. Haka Lodge Christchurch lets you relax in what we like to call “home style luxury”! Unwind in our comfortable lounges, whip up a storm in the kitchen, refresh yourself in our bathrooms with complimentary toiletries and towels, use free unlimited WiFi to say hi to friends and family and relax in our gorgeous eco-friendly garden filled with native plants and herbs and vegetables in the summer months. We have plenty of on-street car parking in front of the property.

Ok place to stay, but make sure you check what you want to see and your budget. Hostel is on opposite side of Christchurch from airport so transfer is expensive. Also, need to take a 20 minute bus or have a car to get into the CBD.

After travelling all of New Zealand, I can certainly say this was one of my favourite hostels. Great staff, relaxed atmosphere and cheaper than the average hostel in Christchurch too. No bunks either!

We stayed in this hostel for 2 nights awaiting the start of our ski tour. It met our needs, despite small rooms and 2 bathrooms. The seating area on the second floor provided a great space to relax after flying for 24 hours and beginning the tour the next day. The spaces are

Kia Ora Polly, Thanks for taking the time to leave a review we really appreciate it. I am really glad you enjoyed your stay and enjoyed our friendly staff. Although we are just outside the city we have plenty of great places to eat close by, plenty of free on street parking, and buses that regularly go to the city. Although the rooms are small compared to hotels they are very standard size for a hostel. I hope you enjoyed your Haka snow tour:) Kind regards, Sheryl Botha
