    Impeccably clean, very beautiful backyard garden. Very quiet and chill place. It was very nice to take a break from busy hostels and just relax here. Very comfortable and did I already mention clean! Very homely vibe. Would love to stay here again

    Canterbury House is an urban oasis conveniently located 15 mins from the botanical gardens and downtown Christchurch. Alan and Keiko have gone above and beyond to make their home warm and open to their guests. Arrived late the first night and had no problems communicating how to get in (they even made our beds for us). Alan made a detailed map outlining the best routes around the South Island as well as all the things we shouldn’t miss! Allowed us to do laundry and clean our van as well!!

    Clean, quaint, friendly staff. Wonderful garden in the back yard. It's a small backpackers run in a homestay-style, so it has a bit of a personal touch. Would stay there again.

    Nice spot, very relaxing. More of a B&B than a hostel. Come here to take it easy for a few days, not to socialize.

    Homestyle hostel that has everything you need but not the best atmosphere or facilities I've experienced in New Zealand. Good, comfortable place to stay for a few nights. Good value

    If you want a quiet stay, this is great, but there isn't much interaction with other guests. You are staying in a room in the hosts house and feel as though you are living around them. The garden is great. My 3 bed dorm smelled worse than most 14 bed dorms in other hostels.
