Not the right atmosphere. A lot of sketchy people living there and just getting drunk all evening.. The facilities were not as nice as other hostels I've visited for even cheaper


Building is showing its age, but the staff are great, it was comfy, clean, and a bit of free light breakfast is always nice. Free WiFi would be a welcome addition.


Expensive for what it is, people drink and party until late and no one does anything bout it. the breakfast offered wasn't very nice, no sugar. bred isn't good tho.

Too many first-trip travellers, disrespectful people without any consciousness of what is sharing a room.


Nice place to Stay


Booked the hostel on the premiss they ran a shuttle to/from the airport. I emailed the hostel before we set off to let them know what we wanted a shuttle there/back but received no reply. When we arrived in Christchurch we phoned the hostel and were told the shuttle was fully booked, and we had to make our own ($40 taxi) way there. When we asked about the Taxi service for $10 back to the airport we were told, despite it being advertised as a 7 day service, that it would not be running.
