“Very good, looks great and very very clean”
Reviewed 2 May 2012

Stayed here for just one night, before picking up our campervan. The staff girl was extremely nice and welcoming. The dorm room was amazing, it wasn't even a real dorm like I'm used to but seperate units with two beds. The entire hostel was very clean and tidy. Everything (showers, toilets, couches, etcetc) was new and worked perfectly.
Just two points of criticism: our dorm-beds were no good, the bottom of the bed was like a pit so we woke up with sore backs. They only give you a voucher for 1 hour of wifi internet which you have to use up at once, very inconvenient. They should provide around the clock free wifi. Also, there are no computers around.

Haka Lodge is a new building with all the amenities that you would want from a hostel. The lodge was very clean with a beautiful garden surrounding so you had a nice tranquil feeling. The rooms were a bit small, the hostel itself is a bit small and the walls are pretty thin so you can hear quite a bit of noise from people in rooms next to you or above.

It is not a party hostel, which we liked but it is a bit out of town. Easy to get buses but a bit difficult to get good information from the 'office' for bus schedules, maps, etc.

Our flight arrived late, but there was an information packet and therefore no problem arriving late at night or early in the morning.

If you want to do laundry, I would not recommend it here. Your only option is to have them do your laundry for you for $7 NZD

Overall, it was a nice experience. A bit small and far from town but a very nice building with a beautiful garden!

This is a high quality budget accom. We had a private double with a shared bathroom. Reasonably priced, clean, flat screen TV in our room, lovely lounge and kitchen dining room, free wi-fi. Set a high standard for the rest of our trip around NZ.

We had a lovely stay at Haka Lodge. We had a 2 bedroom apartment to ourselves which was fully equipped (even with tea and coffe). We arrived quite late and there were clear instructions for us to get into the apartment. My only comment would be that it wasn't very well lit so we struggled a bit.

The staff were very friendly and organised a tour for us the following day.

It was very easy to get a bus into town as the bust stop was just outside.

I would definitely recommend Haka Lodge

Was a great place to stay. Had a double room that shared a bathroom kitchen and big screen tv, living room with one other couple. Had our own deck outside our sliding, bedroom door.
Add in free wifi and it was a perfect stay!

Room Tip: Go for the double room, awesome!

We stayed here in a double room, when we arrived we saw it had a nice little garden. We were welcomed by I assume one of the owners a friendly lady who directly made us feel at home. We needed a shuttle for the next morning and she took care of all that, really nice after a long day just didnt have to do anything anymore !

She sat us down and told us everything about christchurch in a nutshell, we have never had this in any backpackers and especially for in a big city it is really good to know something about it told by a citizen !

Then the room, it was all very new and the room was just really cozy we felt right at home and so relaxed. We had a nice TV with sky in our room and the bed was amazing. It all just looks really nice and the price is cheap for what you get. The showers are clean and working well. The kitchen also has everything you need !

Location is good, bus transport right in front of the hostel and there is shops close by aswell with some good take away and a shopping mall.

In 3 months traveling NZ this is our favourite backpackers and we have been in many so far.
