Golden Backpack Award Winners!!!


The Results are in! We are proud to announce that Haka Lodge has won the Best Accommodation in New Zealand award from The TNT Golden Backpacks!

This is an award that is voted for by the public, by YOU, so we would like to take a moment and say THANK YOU to everyone who voted for Haka Lodge. Whether you have stayed in one or more of our lodges, we are so pleased to know that our brand and our lodges were worth voting for!

We put so much heart into each of our lodges and we want each of our guests to feel like Haka Lodge is a home from home. Our staff are hand picked for their friendliness and passion for making your stay a success and we are so happy that we have succeeded and been awarded this honour!

Each lodge is unique, upholding the Haka values and ethos, but with a touch of difference and a particular style exclusive to Haka Lodge.

Haka Auckland is a bustling, upmarket inner city hostel with enthusiastic staff, a beautiful listed building, near to everything the city has to offer.

Haka Christchurch is truly a home from home, an A-frame building nestled just outside the city, with a roaring fire, friendly staff and living room just like yours.

Haka Queenstown lies in the heart of the adventure capital of New Zealand, just around the corner from all the adrenaline chasing you could ask for, a quirky warren of rooms with a knowledgable team of staff to help you have the best holiday.

Haka Paihia sits above the water, minutes from the beach with arguably the best view in town – a penthouse hostel experience with passionate staff and amazing new facilities, right in the heart of the Bay of Islands.

And if you haven’t heard the news, then you heard it here first – Haka Lodge Taupo is almost ready to open and join our fantastic brand! Haka Taupo is situated in the heart of the North Island, surrounded by geothermal activity, volcanic hot springs with a view of the mountain right from the lodge. The staff have been chosen specifically for their knowledge of the area, their passion for customer service and their ability to make your stay the best it can possibly be. There will be no better place to stay in Taupo when this new hidden gem opens.

If you haven’t visited Haka Lodge before, you can now book with confidence, knowing that your fellow backpackers and travellers have gone before you, checked us out, and voted us the best in town! So what are you waiting for? Come and visit us today!
