    Super homey and quaint in the best way possible— I had stayed at a heap of hostels in the past 6 weeks and this was by far the best. Super chill and staff kept up on the cleanliness for sure. Would highly suggest if someone needs a break from the over crowded YHA, Base, Nomad vibe xo

    A pleasant enough place to stay when in Christchurch. Friendly professional staff. It was clean and tidy. The kitchen well equipped. A cosy lounge/computer room. A nice back lot with tables. Disappointed they increased their prices by 10% (literally) overnight which meant I didn't stay on, but these things happen.

    I stayed there for a weeks during the lockdown. It's a nice place with a great garden and computers if you need them. Staff is friendly and helpful.

    First two nights there was a couple arguing in the hall which was pretty loud. But other than that it was pretty chill. About a 10min walk from the centre which is great, you can walk to get rollicking gelato and walk back and not feel to guilty. Beds were comfy and bathroom was kept clean. WiFi is terrible sometimes.

    This place isn't bad for one night. The staff was nice. The room and bathrooms were clean. The kitchen was gross though. No freezer. Busted pool table, bbq doesn't work. There are aggressive all caps signs everywhere telling people to clean up after themselves. That doesn't make you feel at home, nor does it actually ever work. Kitchen maps were awesome tho. Also there was a curtainless window by my bed with super bright light shining through at night. I had to block it with a pillow and towel.
