Good hostel. We got a 3 bed dorm even though I booked an 8 bed, which was very nice. Kitchen was a bit crowded despite being big. Atmosphere felt social.

I didn't spend a ton of time there, so I can't comment on the bathrooms much. Kitchen was great, big, lots of free adds for your meals, helpful staff (though they only open at 8am, which is tough to make most buses). Beds were fine. I loved the historic style of the house. Free wifi if you have a yha card or you can get the spark wifi hotspot throughout the house (free with my sim package).

Was so great to stay there. Clean and big lounge room and bedroom. I would love to recommend it to everyone.

Nearly everything you expect from a YHA hostel, in a pretty old buidling with character. It would be good to have small lockers for valuables in the rooms and it's annoying that you have to pay extra for wifi (although that seems to be very common in NZ) but otherwise a nice place.

It was too expensive for what it was... Compare with other New Zealand Youth Hostels...

A nice cool hostel. Set in an old large house. Spacious dorms, excellent kitchen facilities (as you can always expect from YHA) Atmosphere could have been better but I was only there for 1 night. Lots of older tourists rather than backpackers.

Good all round accommodation, helpful staff, clean bedding, good lounge/kitchen facilities and also free wifi. Price per night slightly more expensive than competitors.

Loved this place! Great location, very spacious rooms, lots of plug-in points, very helpful staff, nice common area, great unlimited free wifi. Really nothing bad to say. Would absolutely stay again!

Pros: good location by the park, wifi connection is strong, washing facilities are reasonably priced, kitchen is spacious and well equipped, staff are nice. Cons: bathrooms are all downstairs which is a bit of a pain and there is no 'hostal vibe' at all! It seemed that a lot of people here are working in NZ and staying long term so moving between Hostals in Christchurch constantly. I met some nice people, but that seemed to be pot luck.
