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.

I stayed in the dorm on the top floor. Th bathroom is one floor down but that didn't disturb me really. It's a little bit tight to put your luggage but they have big lockers /cupboards there you can put your stuff inside. The bathroom feel a little bit limited in numbers so you

Kia Ora awesome guest! Thank you for your wonderful feedback. We are glad to here you enjoyed your stay with us here at Haka Lodge Christchurch. As the building is quite small we are quite limited with bathrooms. We understand this can be quite irritating when you are sharing with other guests but hope that we make up for it in other aspects of the hostel! Glad to here you enjoyed our comfy beds & lounge room & we would be delighted to see you again if you were ever in the area again! Regards, Haka Team

The hostel is in a suburb of Christchurch and it feels like you are in someone's home due to the layout. The location isn't great. The manager was constantly watching Netflix, probably the reason why the WiFi was terrible for everyone else.

Thanks for taking the time to give us your feedback! We do our best to provide what he hope's a lovely, comfy and homely environment so we're a little sad to hear that didn't suit you. We're a little further out of town than some, though that has a number of nice advantages, like the lovely big garden, veggie patch, quieter environment and unlimited free parking. I can say that it definitely was not the Manager enjoyin some Netflix time, but we do have several staff who stay with us on-site and we like for them to be comfy too. That said, if we're lucky enough to have your company again and you feel someone's hogging the communal TV and you don't feel comfortable talking to them about it, please do come and see us and we'll do our very best to make everyone as happy as possible. Sorry to hear you had Wi-Fi problems! We generally have very strong, fast and great free and unlimited Wi-Fi (that Netflix won't get anywhere near saturating). If we do have you again, please let us know of any issues you're experiencing! Sometimes it's as simple as a good old phone reboot :-) Have a great day and thanks again!

I needed a stop over place on my way up to nelson and found this hostel to be perfect for me. Very relaxed vibe, friendly staff, clean and I had a good nights kip. It’s fully equipped with all the usual hostel kit like a kitchen and chill out lounge. The dorm room was three open

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.
