Had a good sized living space and kitchen area. The rooms were clean, as were the bathrooms. The staff were friendly and able to advise on places to go and tours to do. I even left behind some bits accidentally and they held them for...More

We stayed here for three nights and found almost everything perfect. You might pay a little more than some other backpacker hostels but it shows in the cleanliness and service. The rooms are very cosy and the beds extremely comfortable. The only negative for us...More

Have you sorted your transport options to get from the airport to Dorset House? we recommend booking a shuttle as they are much cheaper than a taxi and run 24/7- unfortunately the number 29 airport bus does not run after 11:00pm.
If you would like us to arrange you a shuttle please send us an email with your flight number- we would be more than happy to book that for you to ensure your arrival runs smoothly :-)
Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can provide any further assistance- we look forward to welcoming you to Dorset House!

We reached Christchurch at 1 am and we were still able to check-in without any problems whatsoever. Write an email to them with your flight details and they leave your room keys in an envelope. We took a Super Shuttle right outside the airport. I guess the hostel arranges a pickup as well. Have a good trip to NZ!
