One of the dirtiest hostels I've been to. The bathroom was constantly disgusting and literally didn't want to put my stuff anywhere in it. The kitchen was far too small for the amount of people in the hostel (it was full due to lack of hostels in Christchurch) and there was no living area big enough to really create any atmosphere. Felt a bit like a prison. Wouldn't stay here again. The only positive was the location which was near the intercity bus stop and town centre.
The bathroom was the dirtiest i have seen. Rooms were clean and tidy though
Staff were a bit rude when we checked in seemed like we were disturbing them...?! Walls are paper thin so all the music and noise from downstairs could be heard quite clearly in our room right until about 5am which was not so noise. Light and socket at each bed was good.
Small hostel with all the necessary facilities, but nothing extraordinary. I thought it was a bit too small. The room didn't have much space for luggage, the kitchen was over crowded, and they don't have a common area only a small separate TV and computer room. For one night it was fine, the staff was also very helpful and friendly.
Great hostel, friendly staff, free wifi is always a plus and the free BBQ was delicious!! Would definitely recommend staying here!

the garden city need more time to recovered from the earthquakes, may god bless it and its people, really feel hurted when the first day i arrived and saw all buildings are need to be re-build. Location of the hostel is too far from the new cdb, free wifi but not working in the room, it was very quiet around the hostel at night. Staff are nice and helpfull in everything you ask.

Excellent staff! I couldn't be happier with the service! Great and friendly place! We loved it!
I was very surprised by this hostel in the heart of Christchurch. It is pretty amazing and I wish I could have stayed longer Comfy dorms, great kitchen and facilities, free unlimited wifi, nice staff and a great backgarden, where they organize barbecues with live music. Had a great time and would definitely return there when in Christchurch!
Late night check in was really easy. Showers were nice.
This was a very nice small Hostel and we had free BBQ. The staff was very friendly and helpful, they also did our laundry. Everything is very clean and from the kitchen you have access to the nice garden. It is good if you want to relax and need some rest. We felt very welcome in this hostel!
Wonderful place. A bit far from the airport, but is probably the best hostel in the city.
Clean hostel with nice garden area. People using as stop off point when entering/leaving nz. Would use again.
Great accomodation, clean rooms, bathrooms and kitchen, nice backyard and very friendly and helpful staff. Unfortunately, there was no free pizza as announced, but at least a movie night with free popcorn. In general a good choice to stay at.
Small place with helpful patient staff. Not much space and the
Small hostel. Only one female and one mixed bathroom for the whole hostel. So no privacy if you are a guy. Lots of free stuff from people leaving NZ.
