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

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?

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.

Great place to stay, clean and massive kitchen, not too far from everything if you don't mind walking. Free shuttle to the bus station really handy!

Nice hostel, friendly staff and clean. It is about a 10/15 minute walk from the main town centre but it's not too bad. Good size kitchen but eating area is a bit cramped. Would recommend and is a bit cheaper than other hostels.

The hostel is about 20/30 mins away from the centre of the city and add an extra 5 mins to get to the supermarket. The hostel itself is really nice good facilities just location is poor. Unless you like a good walk everyday go for a hostel closer to the city or in it.

The friendliest stuff I've ever had here in NZ. Wished this would have been my first place to stay here, they just help you with everything. Also got a free shuttle to the bus station the next morning. Unfortunately the location is a bit far from all the shops and the city Centre, so you have to walk quite long. Everything clean and comfortable, haven't missed anything :)
