The Old Countryhouse Backpackers

Stay at the Old Countryhouse and escape the hustle from the moment you step through the garden gate. One of Christchurch's favourite backpacker hostels for 18 years. We invite you to take a walk along our garden path to one of our charming colonial villas with polished wooden floors and hand-made native timber furniture. Choose from our comfortable double, twin, single or dorm rooms, some with private bathrooms. Central heating keeps you toasty warm during the winter months. Bedroom linen is provided. Our reception desk provides a full travel service. The Old Countryhouse is well-equipped, with spacious kitchens, comfortable lounges, central heating, free unlimited Wi-Fi, a touch of luxury with our Free Spa Pool & Sauna and much more!
