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. Long Term (extended weekly stays) are welcome during winter months from May-August.

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.

    Friendly staff, comfortable. My only criticism is that people don't obey the noise curfew.

    Secure, spacious rooms in a cute villa which gives you a feel for old NZ. Very nice staff and great to be able to step out and walk straight into Hagley park!

    There are single bed in shaered room, so don’t think about noisy bunk beds when someone shake them. Kitchen is huge and convenience because they provile oil, seasoning and enough utensils. The Backpacker is a bit far from supermarket.

Things to Note

Check-in time: 2pm onwards. Check-out time: 10am.

Reception hours are 9am - 5pm at Dorset House.

If you plan to arrive at Dorset House after reception closes at 5pm, please contact us prior to your arrival to let us know and to receive the door code (also in your confirmation email).

Card Pre-Authorisation:

If the total cost of your booking is over $200.00 we may pre-authorise the booking amount to your credit card. This puts a hold on the set amount to ensure that you have enough funds in your account to successfully pay for the booking. Please note, if your card has been pre-authorised the total charge of the booking must be charged to this card upon check-in as this will remove the hold on funds from the card.

In the event you need to cancel your reservation we will require '2 full days' notice. Reservations cancelled with less than 2 full days notice will be charged for the first nights' stay. For clarity - a reservation made for a Wednesday night must be cancelled prior to close of our reception (5pm) on the Sunday night to be considered outside the cancellation period.
