Reviewed 24 May 2014 via mobile

I arrived in New Zealand from London without a reservation and called from my hire car to book tonight. Staff are helpful and friendly. Communal shower is spotlessly clean with plenty of hot water. My single bedroom is comfortable, clean and is fitted with a large flat screen TV.

For an overnight stay on a budget I cannot fault this establishment - that's what we all want from a backpacker's.

Kia Ora, Thank you for leaving us a review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and found the room clean and comfy as well as the bathrooms.

The local eateries have awesome food and we are stoked you enjoyed your dinner at one of the local eateries close by and found the staff helpful.

Our crazy cats, Ceefah and Cracker are great fun and I sure they would have been on their best behavior entertaining you.

We wish you all the very best wishes for the future as husband and wife.

We hope you enjoy the rest of honeymoon :-)

Stayed there for 2 nights and got a free upgrade to the apartment. Friendly staff and free wifi was also nice to have.

Haven't tried the public kitchen but seems good too.
A own car is recommended to get there.

Kia Ora, Thank you for leaving us a review. We are glad you enjoy your stay in our apartment and found our staff friendly.

There are regular buses to the city centre and a short walk away to catch a bus to the local beaches or airport.

Thank you very much for staying with us and we hope to see you again in the future! We hope you enjoy the rest of your travels.

A great place to stay if you are in Christchurch.
I tried staying at two other places and it did not pan out at all.
Haka Lodge was just magic - it clicked. You get your own bed, great people to hang out with, super clean bathrooms and it is close yet far enough from the CBD to be peaceful.
A definite must stay!!!

We had a mixed experience at Haka lodge. The social areas were great and had a nice DVD collection. Rooms were a good size and clean. Only 2 showers so very difficult to find a time when they were free! Service wasn't great while we were there, it was very difficult to ever find anyone in the office and get hold of them when we needed. This was a shame as once we did find them they were friendly and helpful. The location is a long way away from anywhere! We walked to both the beach and into the centre (both around 1.5 hrs) but we like walking... Otherwise you would need a car or be limited by public transport.

Kia Ora, Thank you for leaving us a review. We are glad to read you enjoyed the social areas of the lodge and found the rooms clean and spacious. We are a small and friendly lodge and the staff could have been checking in another guest or tending to many tasks like the washing so we apologies you had difficulty finding us.

We are located in a suburban neighbourhood in Christchurch and a short walk away there are awesome eateries, supermarkets and a handy public bus stop in front of our lodge that takes you direct to the central city in 10-15mins or some of our amazing beaches as well as the airport.

Thank you very much for staying with us and we hope to see you again in the future! We hope you enjoy the rest of your travels.

Nice place, quite comfortable rooms. Unfortunatelly there is no AC, so during hot days can be tough. Not to close to the center of the city, but with convenient bus connections. Great staff! Always really helpful! One problem - too small number of toilets and extremely noisy doors! Reasonable price for the stay, so I recommend Haka Lodge.

Kia Ora, Thank you for leaving us a review  Great to read that you found our lodge nice and our rooms comfortable. We do not have air conditioning in the rooms however there are large windows in the rooms to let in fresh air. As a fire regulation we are required to have fire doors on all rooms and they are slightly heavier than normal doors.
We are located in a suburban neighbourhood and have regular public buses that stop in front of our lodge that take you direct to the central city in 10-15mins.
Thank you very much for staying with us and we hope to see you again in the future! We hope you enjoy the rest of your travels.

I stayed here for one night while visiting the city (I had a car). It was easy to find, despite being out of the city center and the location was quiet. I stayed in the 7-bed dorm, and loved that it was divided into 3 sections so it felt like a 3-bed dorm. Lots of storage and clean, cozy facilities. Friendly staff. Highly recommended.
