Cozy little hostel with a homey feel, helpful staff, and a nice layout. The dorm is divided so there's some extra privacy, and there's a nice lounge for meeting other travellers or curling up with a book. Definitely recommend!

I've stayed in the Haka Lodge Christchurch for over two weeks and it is the best hostel I had in New Zealand! Everyone was so friendly and helpfully to me. It's a pretty small hostel, so it was quiet familiar after a few days and everyone got in touch with each other. I really enjoyed my stay, thank you very...

I stayed here before my haka tour. Although i really enjoyed my tour, i really didnt enjoy staying at the Haka Lodge in Christchurch. Everyone was friendly enough, but the rooms are tiny (we had a private room). We barely had enough room to open our two suitcases. There was also ALWAYS a decent wait for the bathrooms. There are...

Hi Skipper, I thank you for your feedback. It is our only way we can improve the experience we offer our guests. I have not been made aware of the fact that there is a problem with wait times for the bathrooms before. I am hoping it was just an isolated case with a tour group staying who had particularly...

Haka Lodge Christchurch must be the best value accommodation in town. I had two one-night stays here and received excellent service and a very warm welcome both times. Rachel, the lodge manager, was super helpful and was able to accommodate awkward arrival and departure times, arrange transfers and provide all the information I needed for my stay in Christchurch ......
