Property Description

Dorset House is a perfectly located boutique backpackers hostel in a historic 1871 home.

It is situated in a lovely quiet garden setting and is right next to leafy Hagley Park. Built in 1871 as home for a wealthy timber merchant, Dorset House has a fascinating history. It blends character charm with modern facilities, and offers quality budget accommodation in Christchurch. Fully renovated in 2012.

There is plenty of light and space, no bunk beds, and every bed is fully made. There is a full kitchen available, guest laundry facilities, and a large guest lounge room (previously the house's ballroom). Free car-parking is available on a 'first come first serve' basis.

Dorset House offers FREE unlimited WiFi access throughout the hostel.

You will find everything you need for a comfortable stay, including the assistance of our helpful staff. Minx the cat will be asleep on her chair too.

We endeavour to make your stay easy for you. Dorset House offers 24-hour late check-in available on request (please contact us for the door code).

Christchurch is recovering and there's still plenty to do in the Garden City. We'd love to have you stay at Dorset House.
