A very clean hostel, well equipped kitchen, the staff are very friendly and helpfull. The hostel is not down town but about 10-15 mins walk from major sites like the canterbury museum, and a small mall with a supermarket. The beds comfy and the rooms are decent size

Great, modern hostel really clean, amazingly powerful showers, outdoor space, two kitchens, basic breakfast. 6 bed rooms slightly cramped. Negative- no lockers, need directions from bus stop on the website but pretty easy to get info from Google

Located near a busy restaurant and bar street, this hostel has spacious dorms with comfy beds (each with e-socket, but no lamp). There are enough bathrooms and showers (both clean) and two kitchens. The living area was great too and good to socialise. Security was good with padlocks and wifi was fast, stable and free. Had a great stay.

A lovely hostel building and the place felt very secure. However the kitchen areas were tiny and constantly full of other people's clutter/washing up. Location OK but a 15 minute walk from the center. The private room was excellent value

Great hostel but an idiot set the fire alarm off at 3.30AM cooking after a night out. This resulted in the whole hostel being evacuated and 2 fire engines showing up. But otherwise everything was very good.

Very clean hostel! Nice atmosphere, and not too far from the everything worthwhile to see/do in Christchurch. Wish they had lockers to put your passport etc. in, but the general atmosphere was friendly and I didn't feel like my stuff wasn't safe.
