Property Information:

You can enjoy our renovated heritage accommodation, which had a colourful history as Addington Prison.

Our clean, warm and friendly accommodation features super-comfortable beds with free towels, fresh linen with fully made-up beds, free off-street parking, free DVD hire, WiFi, cinema room, free pool table, bicycle hire, commercially-styled guest kitchen and laundry. We offer private singles, doubles, twin bunks and also dorms, as well as some larger rooms that can be used by families or groups.

Christchurch is the gateway to the amazing South Island. Our suburb of Addington is a happening place to be, with awesome new places opening all the time. We are the closest hostel to the Tranzalpine train station (free shuttle to the station available), AMI Stadium and CBS Arena where many concerts and functions are held. You could walk, or it is a short bus ride to Hagley Park, Canterbury Museum and re:start Mall CBD. There are a number of vibrant cafés and bars close by, including the new Dux Live, Bicycle Thief Bar, Bean Scene and Cargo Bar, renowned Simo’s Deli, Addington Coffee Co-op and Court Theatre.

We have modern facilities in our budget youth hostel; you will have secure key access to your room 24 hours a day. And of course, the jail features provide total security.

Wake up to a cup of our freshly made organic, fair-trade espresso coffee from our coffee bar.

We have a travel desk for booking all your New Zealand transport and tickets to Christchurch and South Island attractions - cheapest rates available! The Kiwi Experience buses all pick-up and drop-off here.
