Wifi very expensive! At almost $30 a night I thought it may have been included.


Everything was just fine except that in Auckland the same or better located YMCA hostel cost me 30 dollars instead of 60 here, for the same single room. I understand the special circumstances of Christchurch as of now (September 2014), however to pay $60 for a coffin-like room without facilities is, psychologically, still a little bit frustrating...


Only stayed here one night waiting for my flight, room was okay nothing special, wasn't a very social atmosphere but seems like there was lots to activities to do, in house cafe and a few food choices.


Very basic place. Not much of an atmosphere. Staff is friendly and location is pretty good.
