Clean rooms, lots of bathrooms,good location,open 24/7;big hostel.


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.
