Only stayed for one night but really enjoyed it. Great, really backpacker-friendly place :)
Loved this hostel. It has so much to offer, tv room with lots of DVDs to choose from, computers, garden, free towels (amazing), great free wifi and lovely staff.
The front office people were knowledgeable but still adjusting to all of the changes in CHch since the earthquake (there IS storage at the bus station). They made all of the arrangements for activities I requested, no problems. Very clean hostel with a generally responsible clientele, which is always helpful. A quiet place to stay despite being so close to downtown everything.
Wifi couldn't reach our room but good stay overall
Nice. Tinier than expected, which was ok. Cool that they did a BBQ. Look out, though, 25 minute walk from the bus station.
Only point of improvement would be the old beds, springs would stick out at some places and make sleeping difficult.

We only overnighted here, but our room whilst a little cramped and not clean (rubbish on the floor was covered in dust) it was comfortable enough for one night. Staff were slow to respond to door and desk buzzers, but once they arrived were friendly and helpful. Definitely fine for a one-night stay, possibly not for longer visits.
Great free unlimited WiFi throughout hostel, bit of a walk into town, awesome that every bed had its own socket though
