    Nice small hostel, 4 bed dorms are always nice. Great back yard and a chill vibe at night. Bathrooms are a little beat up but a great deal!

    I had a nice stay and I would do it again. Nice facilities and friendly people. The location could be better but it wasn't too far to walk.

    Nice to have small dorms (only 4 people) and not pay a massive premium. Unlimited wifi is a rarity in this country, so thumbs up for that. A few parking spaces are handy too, and you can get to the centre of the city very easily on foot, just a 10min walk.

    To make it short... it's one of the cheapest hostels in Christchurch but that's also why you dont need to expect the best. Rooms are very tidy and cosy, mattresses are less comfy, bottombed bit low, Bathrooms offer enough privacy and are good provided (free towels) Kitchen is a mess, and not clean at all, most of the time due to lack of cleaning dishes by guests tho! Lovely garden,friendly staff and heaps of boardgames/netflix what makes this hostel a small 7/10

    I found this place very dirty, there was a loaf of bread in one of the cubbies that was completely moldy, seemed like they dont clean it very thoroughly that often. The common areas were very small and there was a weird smell like an old pool throughout the place. I didn't feel comofrtable here.

    Bathroom was very dirty, smelled of urine. It's a shame as the atmosphere with the guests was great.

    Overall not a good experience. I spent one night here in a single room with shared bathroom before heading out of Christchurch. The bed and pillows were very uncomfortable despite being a double bed, and the mattress was very saggy. During the night there was A LOT of racket - I woke up at 2-3am to people making noise in the hallway, wouldnt expect this in a small quieter hostel. I had a wry neck in the morning. The staff were friendly and helpful but the beds really need an upgrade.
