KiWi House is a fantastic hostel! Room rates are very reasonable even for single rooms. The hostel has free WiFi. It sometimes slow because the accommodation has many customers. So, don't expect too much, but still you can use the WiFi unlimitedly. The location is very convenient. The hostel locates in the city of Christchurch. You can walk anywhere from the hostel. Also, the hostel offers picking up service from the airport or the center bus station. The staffs are very friendly and helpful.

Very nice clean place with great staff. Not a place to really socialize with other travelers however. Walkable distance to the city. It was nice and quiet!

It's ok, but the kitchen was super filthy. In general the bathrooms and rooms are clean and the staff is friendly.

Good hostel! The washing machines aren't great and the kitchen a bit small, but overall a good hostel.

Good internet. The staff were quite nice. Clean facilities. Would probably stay here again. Only issue was that there are 2 locations, which we were unaware, and that ended up causing some confusion for our airport shuttle. So be sure to know which address the one you stay at is. I would recommend this place though!

Good hostel, far from the city centre and from countdown and pubblic libraries. Very good kitchen with plenty of gas holders, fridges and sinks. Tv louge. Few bathrooms tough and the long term rooms are smaller and messy. The wi-fi is free but slow and often doesn't work at all. But free parking and they pick you up so what do you want?

Great price, but a long walk from the city centre and is positioned in the middle of a fairly run down suburb. If English speaking / European I would only advise staying here if as a short stop over or in a group. Vast majority of the people staying in the hostel were long termers who had come over from Japan. However, the staff were very friendly and the facilities great!

They kindly come and pick you u from the bus station which is great because it is a bit of a walk away. The hostel is near to the memorial sites from the earthquake and the church, since the earthquake there isn't much else to be near because the few shops,bars and restaurants they do have are quite scattered about. Nice touch having food stores that lock, only down side is that there were only 3 cookers and one was out of order at the time, and there are only 2 showers in each bathroom.
