The hostel is very old and it smelled. The owners, although friendly enough seemed over it and a bit jaded. Not great or overly welcoming but not aweful. I have been to better.

A nice, home-like atmosphere, about 20 minutes walk to city centre. Very clean. There was no real lounge or TV viewing area and the owners live at the hostel. Overall, very nice!

A really homely film! The owners could not do enough for you, they were so helpful and generous!! Ask him anything about where to go in NZ, he knows it all!! The food in the pub next door is brilliant and they do deals for backpacker takeaways! Highly recommend the roast beef for 2!!! Again have to repeat so warm and friendly!

Nice house with very homey feel. Location is alright but city centre is still quite a walk away. Room was basic, not a lot of storage space, and the general area was small (but as there aren't that many guests, good enough).

Very quiet and homely place. Slightly out of town but you can hire bicycles for $10 per day (Christchurch is FLAT). Plenty of car parking, warm and comfortable.

Had a wonderful stay at Canterbury! It was very quiet and comfortable. Especially loved the garden out back. The owner was very welcoming, let me store my bag all day after check out and even offered me a lift to the bus station that evening. Will definitely stay here again!
