Dorset House Backpackers, Christchurch: 204 reviews and 1 photos

This hostel was build in 1870 and has been completely restored. The owners want it to be a home away from home and they did it well. It's near Hagley Park, where you can take the hostel dogs for a walk. It's about 15 minutes from the City Centre. This hostel is a Historical Christchurch Landmark and it's a great place to come to rest after a long time of travelling.
