The only issue we had was that whoever was staying in the room next to us had music blaring until midnight and after that was turned down they continued to shout and talk very loudly between each other until the early hours of the morning.

Thanks you for taking the time to write a review. Part of the charm of Haka Lodge Christchurch is it's homely feel and this is partly because it used to be a large family house. Unfortunately this also means that it's sound proofed like a regular house and, like most hostels that are not purpose built, sometimes noise will travel. We work to address this with a clear 'quiet after 10.30pm' policy and onsite staff who are happy to deal with any noise disruption. Once again, thank you for your feedback and we wish you awesome onward travels : )


We Loved haka lodge. Warm welcome on arrival. Kitchen was well equipped. Complimentary tea and coffee. Fast wifi. Lots of space around the lodge, inside and outside. Plenty of areas to sit! Lots of books available. Bathrooms were clean and spacious.The rooms had single beds which were very comfortable! Relaxed atmosphere. Many opportunities to meet other guests. Its location is a little out of town - we had a car so it was more than manageable! We booked two more nights at the end of our trip.

Gorgeous hostel! Felt like a home! Great kitchen facilities, wifi, and sky TV!! Stayed here before catching a flight and was really impressed with everything. Location was a bit out but perfect for what I needed


Best Dorm ever. Very fast Wifi and nice atmosphere.


Haka Lodge was a pleasure to stay at, Not only did I have an relaxing experience the Wonderful Hostess Cheryl & Rach made my stay pleasant I could not thank these two stunning woman enough for what they did for me I am so grateful. The other guests were very quiet & pleasant they made no noise at all. everything about Haka Lodge was 100% amazingly clean and tidy. If you need some where that is reliable safe and 100% clean & super duper quit stay here. I loved watching Oprah on TLC xxxx

Excellent hostel in most ways I can think of. Friendly and helpful staff, pleasant atmosphere and great facilities. Spotlessly clean. The only downside is the location: the area is nice enough, but it is a few km outside Christchurch. We had pleasant weather and enjoyed the walk – those less lucky with the weather or less happy about walking may want to catch a bus or drive.


I would stay again, very helpful staff .
