    About this area

    Christchurch

    Located in Christchurch, Dorset House Backpackers is in the city center and near a train station. The area's natural beauty can be seen at Hagley Park and New Brighton Beach, while Canterbury Museum and International Antarctic Centre are cultural highlights. Check out an event or a game at AMI Stadium, and consider making time for Christchurch Gondola, a top attraction not to be missed. Our guests appreciate the hostel's quiet location.

    Great location, great lounge, great welcoming staff :) The only hiccup for me was the amount of noise the beds made

    Budget choice!

    Looks like the house is reform from a school. Hv stay in 6 bed room, since all the bed are single bunk, totally no space for luggage. The lights in room is not enough either. Despite of that, ppl are very nice, the lounge is very pretty which I believed is a hall before.

    Great Hostel

    The hostel is nice and well ran. It's clean comfortable and nothing to complain about. The only thing is that it is a bit away from everything and the city center. Still, it didn't stop me from staying there twice.
