My stay at Hostel Cat started with a surprise. I was told that they cater to international travelers and that Americans engaged in domestic travel would be charged an extra $3 per day. When I expressed my disappointment, the lovely lady at he front desk was able to waive the extra charge which considering my stay was for 15 nights would have cut into my budget. The second surprise was that because I was not an international traveler I was assigned to Room 22, a six bed dorm located outside

Location is outstanding withing yards of Victoria Market and a short walk from everything in the CBD. The kitchen was extremely smal for the number of guests that were there, but worked. The refrigerator was absolutely stuffed full. One front desk person seemed to wish she was elsewhere, but the rest were enthusiastic. A burned out light bulb and broken bunk railing were quickly repaired even though it was Sunday.

Hello Dave, We love hearing feedback from our guests. In regards to our kitchen you'd be glad to hear we're installing a large BBQ area on the rooftop so everyone can cook up a storm at the same time. Hopefully we'll catch you on your next visit to melbourne. Safe Travels, Nomads Crew

The New Excelsior is far from new, but when they finish rebuilding from the earthquake it may seem like new. It is a great location and Christchurch rocks all night long. When the desk clerk saw my age (62) he offered me a quieter room on an upper floor. I took it. The only disappointment was the kitchen area. There was no microwave (toaster ovens and many stovetop burners) and eating utensils were scarce. I only saw one spoon the 48 hours I was there. The front desk is not staffed 24 hours which is n

Great art on the wall. Good music playing during the day. A wonderfully friendly black cat that makes you feel at home. Off street parking for free. Great operators.

Location was spectacular. Just keep in mind that if yuo arrive by car you will have to pay $20 a day for nearby but off site parking. I knew that ahead of time so it was not a surprise.
