I will begin by saying what I've enjoyed with Haka Lodge. The accomodation was well taken care of all the way through, maybe one of the cleanest that I've ever stayed in. The interior was very nice and comfortable with alot to offer in the ways of entertainment. I was a little suprised really by how new everything seemed inside of the building considering that I've been living in backpackers for almost 2 years now and I know how easily things can be damaged inside of them! It did seem a little like I was staying over at someone's house then in a backpackers accomodation. The rooms were nearly motel quality, and the bathrooms were very nice and private and close to our rooms. The staff were very informative about how to get around the city and were helpful when assistance was required.

However, as nice as the backpacker hostel was, I must admit that the location was a bit far from the CBD and other attractions in Christchurch. A bus stop nearby can shift you around with moderate ease though. And some of the staff seemed a little too stern at times or just plain indifferent.

All in all it was a nice, comfortable stay in quality accomodation and with minimal complaints. But hopefully you have a vehicle, or are not shy of a good hike!

I was very ill with sinusitis and bronchitis and had booked a single room. Haka hooked me up with a complimentary upgrade to an apartment to myself because of my situation. They also stored my luggage for weeks. Very kind and considerate staff. My favorite hostile in Christchurch!

Not your typical hostel. We had our own room with nice sheets, a tv and heater. The bathroom was clean as well, it felt more like I was staying at a friend's house. KItchen was awesome and internet was unlimited which we found difficult to find in NZ. Staff was very friendly. Already recommended the place to other travelers going through Christchurch.

we arrived late at night and there was no trouble checking in. the apartment and room was left nice and warm for a cold night. very clean, great bathroom, and easy check out. Plus was recomended a great cafe for breakfast just down the road. Only thing is you'd be best to have a car to stay here (as we did)

Room Tip: twin room was perfect

Having stayed at many hostels, I was quite impressed by the cleanliness of the kitchen at Haka Lodge. Gross kitchens are something that I highly dislike about hostels, but Haka Lodge seemed to have it under control. The rooms and bathrooms were also kept very clean, so I give the Haka Lodge a thumbs up! Thanks for an awesome stay. Definitely recommend this place.
