I really enjoyed my stay at the Old Countryhouse. Staff was really helpfull. Hostel is nice and clean. (Even the radiators got cleaned!) Hottub and sauna were good. You can walk to the city centre, that takes 15 min. There are bars close and the supermarket is around the corner. Thnx More

The bed was very comfortable, the room nice and warm and the toilet and bath facilities very tidy. On my first night the people outside the room were audible, but I could get to sleep without difficulty. The second night there was some giggling idiot watching something on his laptop in More

Decent hostel, showers were a bit temperamental. Single beds are awesome especially after a long flight! More

Dorset is a nice hostel... I likes that they don't have bunk beds. It was quiet and the kitchen and living room has basically all you need. More

Rooms are very spacious even for a 10-bed dorm. The hostel is not easy to locate though, as from the main road there is only a small sign. Staff seemed a little tired, I thought with such a unique hostel they would be more enthusiastic but instead just mentioned where things are located in More

My first hostel in NZ and very different from the ones I am used to throughout Southeast Asia. An extremely friendly lady at the front desk, excellent kitchen facilities, a very nice back yard. The lockable rooms seem to have 2 bunk beds each but lack storage facilities such as lockers. More

The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the hostel kitchen is very convenient. I was concerned the room doors don't lock behind you, and that if a dormmate left it unlocked anyone could come in and get into your open "lockers." However, I didn't have any problems. When I come through 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

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

Not the right atmosphere. A lot of sketchy people living there and just getting drunk all evening.. The facilities were not as nice as other hostels I've visited for even cheaper More

Building is showing its age, but the staff are great, it was comfy, clean, and a bit of free light breakfast is always nice. Free WiFi would be a welcome addition. More
