Staff were the best thing about this place, so helpful and friendly. My room was quite hot and stuffy the night I stayed and it only had one small fan but I guess that's more the weather's fault not the hostel's! Everything else was great.
Literally right on the beach, it's a twenty second walk from the front door. Not in the main town however but there's a frequent shuttle bus or it's just a 15 minute walk along the beach. Really nice chilled out atmosphere in the place and lots of hammocks to relax in :)

Cool place to stay, probably the best hostel you'll get in Christchurch at the moment. Love all the jail references, and the fact that it's literally a jail makes it really unique and fun. It's got everything you need/expect and really easy to get in and out of town.
Really nice relaxed place, felt right at home there. All the facilities are great and staff are friendly and helpful. Mount Eden is a lovely part of the city to stay in, cool cafes and shops etc. It's away from the CBD but only a ten minute bus ride to get there so still really handy to get in and out of the centre.
