As part of a one week ski tour of New Zealand by Haka tours, I stayed the night before the tour in their Christchurch lodge. It is located about a 15 minute drive from the center of town but on a bus route. The lodge is a mix of a couple of structures and a bit of a maze. It is clean but very basic. There are cooking facilities so you can make your own meals. Beds are comfortable but most are dorm style with a few private rooms. Rooms were clean but the lodge manager wasn’t much help when it came to information. The lodge is okay but simple. The tours are budget tours and the lodge fits that description.

Thanks for your feedback Robert! Haka Lodge Christchurch is indeed a backpackers accommodation, though an upmarket one - you won't find many cosy places with a fireplace in the lounge :-) Apologies if you felt we could have been more helpful! We do have quite a lot of information, including on bus routes and times, local pubs and activities and so forth on signs in the lounge and hope that helped. Our free bike hire makes getting around a breeze, weather permitting. Haka Tours does offer Haka Plus options, with hotel accommodation, if that's of more interest to you next time? Thanks again for taking the time to leave us your review!

The lodge was simple but so so homey and relaxing! They provided everything you could need from shower gels, towels, tea and coffee. This was one of the last days of our trip and it was unreal to have such a comfy place to hang out! Wood fire was cranking and staff were really helpful and friendly :) 10/10

Spent the night in one of the shared rooms. The set-up was very clean and everything was provided - hot water, heating, basic food and tea/coffee. The staff member was fantastic and extremely helpful. A tad far out of the CBD but there's a bus stop right in front of the lodge.

Yay! Great to hear you had such a great stay with us Maddy, and liked our clean and cosy lodge and our awesome staff :-) We're a bit further out of town than some, that's fair enough, but it does mean we can have a nice big garden space and lots of parking for those with their own vehicles. Thanks very much for taking the time to leave your review and hope we get to see you again some day!

A bit far from downtown, but quiet. A car would be an asset, as it's not walking distance to the CBD. Very friendly and helpful staff, warm and cozy, with a wood stove in the common room. The lodge is on a side street (frontage) so a bit hard to find at night, for the first time. All in all, a good place to stay if you don't want the noise of downtown, or the bar scene. Haka tours also operates from the lodge

Kia ora and thanks very much for leaving us your review! Glad you had a great stay at Haka Lodge Christchurch and loved our warm, cosy lodge, awesome staff and comfy fireplace :-) While we're a little further from town, at a 10 minute drive, it does give us the advantages of having a lovely garden space and, as you point out, distance from night-life noise. Hope to see you again soon!
