Once in a lifetime experience to live in an actual jail! It was very interesting. The showers could have been a lot cleaner but overall the bathrooms were clean and well kept. Great atmosphere with very helpful & friendly staff. In short I enjoyed my stay at the Jailhouse.

Very clean and comfortable and a great location for the railway station. Would have been 10/10 but for the limited number of showers, toilets and lockers.

Honestly, the place was pretty cool. Awesome staff that helped with some uncommon queries. Seemed quite comfy for "jail".

This place is truly amazing, staying in a gaol overnight is something that everyone should do without having to break the law. The operators of this hostel did a great job in providing such an experience. I would recommend the accommodation to anyone!

On the important stuff this hostel is great. 2 tv rooms, security good, WiFi great and fully equipped kitchen. It lacks a bit of atmosphere but only because people use Christchurch as a stopover and not to party really. Good parking and access to takeaway's and supermarkets.

We had a great time at the Jailhouse. Pretty cool atmosphere! Unfortunately the wifi didn't work for a short time but afterwards it worked.

Pretty standard hostel in a cool building. Very nice staff were ready to help with anything, and kept it relatively clean. It is still an old jailhouse, which is part of the charm, but it does lack a few things like multiple power outlets and modern bathrooms. It is a little out of downtown but not really an issue.

Overall very happy with choosing to stay here. Everything was fantastic and staff were so friendly and helpful. Only very small complaint would be the wifi as if it is busy you might get kicked off and hard to get in your room but not much you can do about that one. Other than that everything was great!
