Hop off the plane and into your bed in under 30 minutes at JUCY Snooze Christchurch (perfect for overnight flights!). We’re right across the carpark from the airport – check-in 24/7 and access your room via your smartphone. Next morning, grab a book and bag a hammock in our indoor garden – complete with astro turf and a swing. We also have an outdoor terrace for soaking up the sunshine. Use the free Wi-Fi to look up a new dinner recipe to try out in our communal kitchen.


Our hostel can be reached on foot from both the international and domestic terminals of Christchurch International Airport. In fact, we’re only a 15-minute walk away. The centre of Christchurch is a 15-minute drive from us or 40 minutes via the public bus. Spend a day walking in North Hagley Park and see Maori artefacts at the Canterbury Museum – 45 minutes away by bus. The conservatories at the Botanic Gardens are an impressive spot for a selfie, just a 15-minute drive from our door.

Rooms and Dorms

With screens you can close, the futuristic-looking pod beds in our mixed and female-only dorms give you plenty of privacy. They have under-bed storage for your backpack, too. Linen and towels are included so you can forget your sleeping bag, and we make things even easier with an elevator up to your room. For extra shower space, private en-suite rooms are available.

Extras and activities

If there’s a better way than a BBQ to mix with other visitors, we don’t know it is! Grab ingredients from the supermarket across the road and light it up. Once the ice is broken, our common room is the next step for a game of Wii or foosball. Ask at our 24-hour reception about tours in Canterbury and onward travel. Need your laundry done before you leave? Drop it with us and we’ll do the rest.

    Probably the coolest hostel in New Zealand! I was transported into another dimension and it was wonderful! You have your own curtain, you have your own lights and charging points. I was an astronaut and it was great! Most definitely recommend

    Loved my stay here. Well located, great value for money when all you want is a hot shower and a clean and comfy bed. Loved the central social area - quirky and fun!

    The communal space was really nice with lots of charging sockets and the hostel is very close to the airport. There's some free parking opposite the hostel too. The lockers under the beds are great, but very noisy. There's no small condiments like oil, salt or tea (you can buy tea& coffee) in the kitchen but it is fully stocked with pots, cutlery etc.

    Perfect hostel for staying by the airport. Pod beds were comfy and very handy to have USB/Plug next to each bed. Kitchen and hangout space was spacious and clean. There is a small retail park nearby with a supermarket and restaurants. You do have to pay to park in their overnight which seems ridiculous for paying guests.

    Nice place and in walking distance to the airport. We stayed just before the Coronavirus outbreak in NZ. Far to many people in one place in regards to social distancing and containing the virus. Nice big kitchen but way too crowded and people were very bad at cleaning up after themselves. Otherwise a nice place.

    Proximity to airport is the only selling point of this place. Mostly angry because my food bag (labeled, no less) was stolen and so was other food in the fridge - I’ve never been this mad about something even in the most budget hostels out there. Crowded crowded kitchen, uncomfortable beds in the pods. Pods are good because the disturbance from others is low but it was claustrophobic.

    Close to the airport so good for early / late flights. Pods were clean and fine but the bathrooms and facilities were disgusting!
