Nice place. Not too far from the city center and nakedbus stop. Room was quite cold in the morning (there was only one small electric heater set on automatic and unadjustable timer that did not last the whole night). More

Rooms are very basic (As expected with the setting!) but clean and warm. Very cool place to stay for a couple of nights. More

Unfriendly, unhelpful owners. Cold, dark environment with notices on every single wall reminding you of the house rules. Do not recommend and will never go back. Unfortunate beginning to our new start in this country. More

One of the dirtiest hostels I've been to. The bathroom was constantly disgusting and literally didn't want to put my stuff anywhere in it. The kitchen was far too small for the amount of people in the hostel (it was full due to lack of hostels in Christchurch) and there was no living area More

This was a great hostel. The most "homely" hostel I have stayed in in my 3months of travelling. The staff were extremely nice and the beds were the most sturdy bunk beds I've found in any hostel! If you're looking for a party hostel this is not one for you as it is quiet which was perfect More

Staff were unhelpful, room was very noisy and cramped, ceiling was only 6 inches above the top bunk bed. Nothing happening in the locality, no bars or restaurants. Wifi was expensive. Not my favourite. More

The staff were nice enough to let me move into a private room since I was a little sick. The hostel is really central and easy to get to from the airport plus they had free parking for my rental car. More

Our car was broken into just outside the hostel. The lady at reception shrugged this off almost as if crime is a common occurrence in this area, so be careful when staying here. More

This was the cheapest private room that I could find for my one night in Christchurch, therefore it was relatively good value for money. It was very basic, but it was fine. The walls were paper thin, so I could hear everything - including what someone was eating in the room next to me. More
