Best sleep I had in 9 months!! Loved the thick mattresses and dressing gown in the deluxe girls dorm. The showers weren't great but I understand they were renovating. the location was good too a short walk from the shopping streets and a good location to be picked up for excursions.
Really liked my stay here. Location wasn't the best but very close to the subway and on a quiet street so when you do want a little break from the city that never sleeps thats good. I wish they had organised more social events. The BBQ was great but other hostels give new guests welcome drinks and introduce all new people the day they arrive. Another more sociable option is having a bulletin board where people can post their details to see if people would like to join them seeing the sites.
Wrigley hostel is fantastic - great staff that go out of their way for you, bbq and terrace out back, crazily comfy sofas to pass out on, free wifi, satellite tv, ping pong, pool table, darts, free breakfast. Close to rail and bus links and right in the centre of the busy wriggleyville. You can have a great time seeing the city or you can hole up in the hostel for days and still have tge best time. I met some great friends here and was so sad to leave. Thank you for everything Brendan
The atmosphere is down to you and the people you meet here as without the girls I met I would have been pretty bored. It was good to have the pool as it's sooo hot in June when I went. The air con in the room was not powerful enough and it was very noisy so it was hard to sleep. There are very few hostels in LV so you have to suck it in and go for it really. The room and bathrooms were very average. I liked the communal room with books etc but noone used it and the lights were left off.
I was put in a room with people that had clearly been living there for a while and it was a total mess and so dirty. All their clothes, accessories, makeup, hair products, shoes were scattered all over the room. The bed was really uncomfortable and the window was thin so all the noise from the bars underneath and across the street keep you up until around 3am. I met cool people here so I had a good time but if you want a good night sleep or somewhere a little more comfortable I wouldn't go here
The staff here were totally fab! It wasn't very busy so I went to the pub with one of the girls working there and next day did a fab wine tour with her. Met some great people here to socialise with and loved the bedrooms/bathrooms and especially the hot tub!! We had bad weather and enjoyed getting cosy in the lounge with a blanket and Pride and Prejudice. Tombstone pick you up from bus stops and take you to the ferry because they are fab. Brekkie is fab and owner cooks sometimes too!
I love love LOVED my stay at the fish tank!! Thank you Craig and team for all you did to welcome and inform everyone on things to do in kaikoura. Wake up at 6 30 and stumble 2 minutes to the beach for sunset, visit ohau stream waterfall for baby seals and make sure you do the dolphin encounter as it was incredible. Thanks again FT love Tori xxx
I had a great time here. The sightseeing tour with Chris around Sumner, Littleton and Christchurch is fab and well worth the money. Loved the outside decking area and den/tv room. social areas were nice too. The rooms are basic but thats fine for a traveller :) They are good dropping you off where you need to go, airport or bus stop and giving suggestions. If you visit Christchurch make sure you go and see a rugby match - IT WAS BRILLIANT! :) Also the Replay shopping in shipping containers :)
I LOVED THIS PLACE!!! The staff were fantastic - cheryl particularly (i hope that was her name..) Loved the downstairs with the big fire - needed in winter. Sit there with your FERGburger and you'll be in heaven. The delux 4 person room in the female only dorm was fantastic. So clean and modern. The bed was good too. I had a great night sleep. Loved the location right by the lake and very close to everything. Definitely recommend.
I HAD THE BEST TIME HERE WITH MY GIRLS ALEX, ALEX FRANCESCA AND MERLE! The place and facilities are pretty good but the people make it. I had a great Ladies night out to Sin City with the staff and some lovely german girls from my room, kat and hanna. Loved the beach front market in the evening and the surf meets city. It's a fab place. Sooooo random.
