Far away from town but close to the ocean and pier, so it´s all about what you are interested in.


We arrived at 1 ar the night and sleep for two hours. And pay 67 dollars not good!

Quite far from central Christchurch and not the nicest facilities, good things were the security, a cafe downstairs and really nice staff.

Hi, Thanks for your response! Yes we are a bus ride away from the city! We are close to the beach instead :) We are glad you liked the cafe and that our staff were friendly. Cheers


Loved the location! It's right but the beach and I liked that it wasn't in the city. Staff was super friendly and helpful! No curtains on the windows so streetlight shown in at night and maybe a real wall around the bathroom in the rooms would be better . Otherwise I have no complaints! Loved it!

Really cool place to stay for a few days, staff were helpful and genuinely friendly! Great location just minutes from beach/pier, library (free wifi!) and supermarket. Good vibes!
