After travelling around New Zealand on the Haka Tour, we actually opted to return to Christchurch to stay back in the Haka Lodge for the next 7 nights. We had lovely service, and were given a private room when they had one available. I did come down one evening and found several people without beds sleeping on the couches in... More

Arrived late afternoon & thank my lucky stars for gentleman sat on plane next to us who gave us a lift from the airport - think we'd still be trying to find it via no.3 bus in pitch black otherwise! Once discovered its a great lodge, very homely especially lounge area with log burner blazing away. Twin room was immaculate... More

Stayed in a private room, which was cosy and well decorated. Had a good panel heater. Balcony was cool. Located out of town, but transport links seemed to be good (we had a hire car). Communal areas comfortable and kitchen was well equipped. Only two bathrooms, but these were clean and showers good. Perhaps we stayed at Haka Lodge at... More

I arrived in New Zealand from London without a reservation and called from my hire car to book tonight. Staff are helpful and friendly. Communal shower is spotlessly clean with plenty of hot water. My single bedroom is comfortable, clean and is fitted with a large flat screen TV. For an overnight stay on a budget I cannot fault this... More

Bathrooms in superb condition and beautiful hot showers. Little upset that only stayed 1 night wish I could have stayed longer. Oh and nice friendly cats.

Stayed there for 2 nights and got a free upgrade to the apartment. Friendly staff and free wifi was also nice to have. Haven't tried the public kitchen but seems good too. A own car is recommended to get there.

A great place to stay if you are in Christchurch. I tried staying at two other places and it did not pan out at all. Haka Lodge was just magic - it clicked. You get your own bed, great people to hang out with, super clean bathrooms and it is close yet far enough from the CBD to be peaceful.... More

We had a mixed experience at Haka lodge. The social areas were great and had a nice DVD collection. Rooms were a good size and clean. Only 2 showers so very difficult to find a time when they were free! Service wasn't great while we were there, it was very difficult to ever find anyone in the office and get... More

Nice place, quite comfortable rooms. Unfortunatelly there is no AC, so during hot days can be tough. Not to close to the center of the city, but with convenient bus connections. Great staff! Always really helpful! One problem - too small number of toilets and extremely noisy doors! Reasonable price for the stay, so I recommend Haka Lodge.
