Amazing value boutique backpacker accommodation just outside Christchurch city centre, Haka Lodge is a hostel with a twist. This cosy sanctuary is a perfect hideaway for backpackers and mid-budget travellers looking to escape the rush of the city centre.
The lodge has inherited its quirky character from its parent company Haka Tours, who run small group adventure and snow tours all over New Zealand. The grounds of the lodge are home to a great variety of different native plants and trees which veil the house from the view of passersby.
Guests are welcome to use the communal lounge (with Sky TV), tea and coffee making facilities, free internet and wi-fi, \'chill out\' area, and garden. Continental breakfast is included in dorm and private room pricing.

DirectionsShow MapHide Map
You can find Haka Lodge at the Ferrymead end of Linwood Avenue, half way between Christchurch's city centre and the surfing suburb of Sumner.
We are located on the corner of Linwood Avenue and St John's Street, 518 Linwood Ave. (opposite Oderings Garden Centre). You have to turn into a service road, Wanstead Place to access the property. We are on Linwood Ave but back from the main road - hence why people often get lost!
We are a little hard to locate as we are on the ‘other side’ of Linwood Avenue, you will see a BP petrol station on Linwood Avenue - Just after the BP Petrol Station on Linwood Ave there’s a side street called Wanstead Place, drive across the grass area and turn left into the ‘other side’ of Linwood Ave – Drive to the end of the cul de sac as we are at the very end, where there is a turning circle - the lodge is on your right behind the wooden gate.
If you are travelling from the airport, catch number 3 bus from the airport or if you are in the city you can catch bus number 21 from the central bus exchange on Lichfield Street.
Should you require any further help with getting here, please call us!
