We arranged late check in with the hostel, but the code they gave us to open the side door didn't work, nor did the doorbell to ring the night manager.
Ok hostel but very pricey for what you get. Good atmosphere. One of the 8 bed dorms has no windows (it's not nice).
Bad located, messy, strange people.
This was just a brief stopover, but the staff was very helpful!
The staff are really friendly and so helpfully. Only thing is the location is out on city centre, which I personal enjoyed but many may not want to take a 30min bus ride. Only downer to the hostel, was that it was very cold and at night I needed extra blanket!
Location is not the best, 30 minutes busdrive away from the city with no nightbuses. All hostels in Christchurch are quite expensive, but one has to keep in mind that staying at the point break means also paying 3.5$ for the bus each time one wants to get to the city.
