All round good hotel / hostel for those on a budget.

If the so called "Guest Kitchen" was the only kitchen in the house, it is too less for so many people.

I was delighted with the size and amenities of my double room. There was lots of space to spread out as well as hanging space and a cupboard. We had a balcony, and with the bathroom just outside the door, it was like having an ensuite. The location is excellent and the Botanic Gardens across the road are beautiful. I would definitely stay here again.

Only stayed a night, but location is good. Central to city center. Staff were very helpful even at 4am! Would definitely stay again next time im in Christchurch!

Great location near the Botanic Gardens, easy walking distance to town. It is a hostel for students; the lounge and kitchen are very small and the kitchen was generally not very clean. Rooms are quite large and there are plenty of bathrooms.

basic hostel right near the cross country bus pickup and so very convenient....could use lockers for added security in the rooms. Would use again for ease of transport.

Good hostel on good location. Near botanical gardens, which is probably the only thing that didn't suffer that much from the earthquakes. Within walking distance of the container mall.

Stayed here two times during January and a second time in February. First time in a double room and second time in a four bed. Rooms were clean and spacious enough, first time shared bathrooms were quite dirty but second time they were always clean. I guess it depends on what kind of people that's on your floor. Didn't use the kitchen. Staff was helpful and location is very central.

WiFi is extra NS$5.00 a day with a card which can be used at other hostels and places. If member of YHA you can use for free Wi Fi. YMCA is only building still standing in desolate earthquake zone, excellent restaurant attached off the office like another world. Dorm door are keyed and tenants often leave or forget to lock when sleeping so anyone can enter or leave open when going to shower so others gear can be ripped. There where no lockers in the means 4 bed dorms so difficult to secure.

I like to be able to cook so it was perfect. close to everything. Some visitors didn't clean the kitchen unfortunately so there were always someone of the staff cleaning. I think it's really bad when some people just leave the dishes but it's not the fault of the hostel. I was very happy with my stay and the hostel

Excellent value for money, nothing exceptional but at least it is clean.

I really liked this hostel. It's one of the few hostels left in the Christchurch city center. It's very centrally located across the street from the Botanical Gardens, and a 10 minute walk to Cathedral Square or the main bus exchange. I am glad this hostel offered up female only dorms. Essentially unlimited wireless Internet (1 GB per 24 hours) is only $5 a day. The only drawback to this hostel is their is no overnight luggage storage offered. But other than that, this is good value for money.

The hostel was comfortable and well looked after, although the kitchens were untidy and dirty. This was unexpected when compared to the bedrooms, bathrooms and general shared areas.
