Dorset House Backpackers
1 Dorset Street, 8014 Christchurch, New Zealand –
Welcome to Dorset House! Dorset House is one of Christchurch's original Victorian homesteads. Built in 1871, it has had a variety of uses, including a private homestead for a merchant's family, a government-run hospital, a religious home - and since 1998 - a boutique backpackers hostel. Now family-owned by Michelle & Steve and their three young daughters, Dorset House offers a range of quality budget accommodation in a charming historical home. It was fully renovated in 2012 and we offer free unlimited WiFi access throughout the hostel. We'd love to have you stay!
