Property Description

A little Backpacker Oasis in the heart of Queenstown with free unlimited WiFi and a warm welcome!

Everything at our Backpacker Lodge has been designed with the discerning traveller in mind, from the flat-screen TV's in the common areas and private rooms, to the custom designed wooden bunks with privacy curtains. Our private rooms have hotel standard beds & fluffy pillows, our lounge has an extensive DVD library, & our two kitchens have free herbs, spices, tea and coffee. We also provide every guest with free unlimited Wi-Fi for the duration for their stay, naturally!
Whilst we are spread over 3 levels, we are a small Backpackers for fewer than 50 people. This means that there is more space for you to relax, meet like-minded travelers and plan your adventures in Queenstown. Our experienced staff are on hand to help with ideas and bookings - just come and have a chat!

The cherry on top is our location. Haka Lodge is in the center of Queenstown, yet on a quiet residential street. This means easy access to the town's many activities but also the reassurance of a peaceful night's sleep.

**The minimum age of guests is 18 years old, we do ID check all guests and you will be turned away if you or any other member of your group is under age.
** We also have very limited parking, Queenstown parking is very restricted, we have five onsite parking spaces. We do also have limited street parking but that is shared with two other accommodations. Our reception colleagues will always direct you to parking spots nearby, just ask*** View House Rules

    can't really fault them, perhaps a bit of air freshner for the toilet would be nice, however everything is nice and clean and comfortable, they are extremely thoughtful in all the little touches that they've included, definitely definitely staying here again!! the best hostel we stayed at in our entire trip.

    Staff were very friendly and helpful - lockable drawers under bed were great. Bunks were solidly build timber - minimising disturbance from person on top bunk. Fantastic location - 1 block and your in town - but quiet street with minimal passing traffic.

    Great hostel for a weekend getaway! Stayed in a private room for two nights over a weekend and found this hostel to be in a great location close to the town centre and amenities. Not the place to go if you’re seeking a party atmosphere as it is a quiet hostel but this suited me fine! Super clean and secure, would certainly recommend!

    By far, above all else, the best about HakaL Qtown are its people, the staff!! People come & go in Qtown, and so that particular combination of personalities wont be there for long but I had a really great time making those new friends. I was sad to say goodbye to my new friends. The physical complexity of the lodge is unusual and interesting, not the stereotypical hostel. It seems to promote social gathering and interaction in a positive way. Oh and the 10:30 Kitchen/lounge rule kinda sucks.

    Nice and small hostel in a very good location. Clean as well. The dorm room was kind of tiny and not much floor room there at all.

    This place had the most comfortable beds I’ve ever slept in, also they were made from solid wood so you didn’t get any noises or movement when the person above you moved around in their bed. My only complaint is that they shut down all common areas including the kitchen at night so you’re forced to go out if you want to hang out and have a drink or eat after 10pm.

    Great location, friendly staff. Missing a bit of atmosphere however, the layout doesn't encourage everyone to casually mingle. Perhaps playing a bit of music in the common areas etc would be an easy first step? Everyone was on their phones a lot too, but I guess that's not the hostel's fault...! :) Overall, enjoyed my stay

    we had a nice stay, our biggest complaint was when we arrived the room had toenail clippings around the bin in the room! Gross! The rest of it was well maintained. I think having the kitchen inaccessible early in the morning is absurd though! We had a shuttle at 6am and had to get a night manager to wake up and unlock it so we could get our food before we left. Kinda silly in a hostel where everyone needs to be up early.

    Very nice hostel and good location. I really like the consistency of the Haka Lodge set up in the bunks with the individual plug ins, light and curtain. Just wondering why the kitchen has such strict hours as backpackers are always coming and going at all times of day. 10:30 seems very early to lock the doors.
