Lovely little hostel bit of a walk from town but didn't make much difference. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms and facilities were good. Sadly didn't see the famous Max! More

Great hostel, very quiet, very clean, even the dog is really friendly. Good showers, free wifi and free tea and coffee. The best one i've been in Christchurch, just a little more expensive than the others but totaly worth it. More

Wifi didn't seem to work very well in the lounge and didn't work at all in the room. More

Free wifi was great for keeping in touch with my partner. Most hotels don't even offer free wifi throughout so really appreciated this feature. More

The kitchen was crowded but the second kitchen was mostly out of order. It was very clean and the people at the desk were uber helpful. It's a pretty good spot. More

Confusing directions on website; needs to be fixed. Did make it hard to find when it didn't need to be. Only on street parking and not very much of that. Nice, clean, modern, large bathoom. We had a separate room with a small modern wardrobe and a private balcony. Lots of nice little More

This YHA is a fairly basic hostel, and was satisfactory for simply providing a bed for the night. I think if I was staying in Christchurch longer I would go elsewhere as the atmosphere was not the same as other YHA hostels I have stayed in or indeed non-YHA ones either. However, it was More

I only stayed for one night. The bed was comfortable and each had its own light and plug. It seemed like a nice social place even though I didn't really get a chance to socialize due to my short stay. More

It was just all right. Not clean and room isolation was terribly poor. The staff was very nice though because I arrived after reception hours and had prepared my key and wifi code and all. More

The place is clean. But the room is a bit smelly. The place itself is quite hard to notice because it's located inward and no close to the main road. They even have a cat you can play with More

Not happy to be told to take my shoes off! It is not in my culture. It is impractical to ask guests particularly with backpacks, or people making several trips to unload their car. A lot of rules explained to us but no interest in us as people. Felt we were intruding on owners kitchen and More
